It's recommended that you have a sway bar on your Honda Civic EK while driving to prevent any damage to your suspension system. The car comes with one pre-installed, but you may choose to remove it and install a different model. You may also need to install a new bar if the old one is damaged in some way or has been removed for any reason.

  1. 1

    Jack up the car to allow you easy access underneath. Be sure to use jack stands for safety reasons.

  2. 2

    Align the sway bar so the ends are on the designated posts and can be bolted down easily. The posts should fit into the pre-existing holes on the sway bar. The bar should be attached where the old one was removed, running parallel to the axel of the car, front or back, next to the suspension. If you're unsure of the location, consult your car manual.

  3. 3

    Attach the sway bar to the frame of the car using the brackets to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts to the bracket.

  4. 4

    Tighten the bolts on the ends of the sway bar to secure it further.
