EF gurus......suspension question

Should I ....

A) Keep my stock sway bar w/ no lower tie bar

OR

B) Ditch the factory sway bar and use my Megan rear lower tie bar

BTW the car is a 1991 CRX SI I am currently running:

92-95 civic Koni Yellows on the lower perch
92-95 civic Megan racing LCA's
Stock 92-95 front forks
88-91 Progress Springs 2" all around
Megan Front Upper Tie Bar
Megan Rear Lower Tie Bar
All new factory busings.

Ideas please and perhaps a valid reason behind option A or B

Thanks

ditching that sway bar would be the worst move ever...unless u like sloppy rear ends

car can be extremly scary if you back end is tight and you got no sway bar. I drove to st. kitts like that once, some pot holes made my back end jump a couple of feet over. Freaking scary!

Well to my very basic knowledge street racing would invlove driving fast in a straight line to beat another car. With a suspension related question I dont see how tha would improve my "street racing" ability. Going fastis not my first priority.

Cynical--right now I have the factory sway bar off w/the lower tie bar on. They woulndn't fit together. Im thinkin of puttin the sway bar back in but just haven't had the time. I want to see if I cannotice the difference.

QRTR--whats up man!hows the car? I bailed onmy 240 project....man I had everything. It was just too costly to complete the project the way i wanted it. + I love hondas way to much.

I had both tie bar and sway bar on my black Si...they worked and fit fine with no interference at all

what does your lower tie bar look like? if its the generic style ones then it will fit no problem

the sway bar should work with that...I had a tie bar similar to that and the swaybar was just fine

now those LCAs are just what I need...

hmmmm...couldnt get it to fit at all.
Let me know about the LCA's.....I can get them for a good price. My buddy is the Megan guy for canada.
BTW they are eg LCA need washers to shim for the shocks to work.
