sway bar?

ok, i got a type r rear sway for my eg, but my control arms dont have the hole for the bolts, so i am just wondering if its safe to drill a hole on the arms i have now, or should i go for a pair of type r control arms, and will the delsol control arms will fit on a eg too?

people have drilled holes in their lcas to make it work but i wouldn't recommend it at all. type r lcas are different and from non itr integra and 5th gen civic lcas. you can't use your springs and struts if you use type r lcas. i recommend you just get normal integra lcas and get new bushings while your at it because chances are, the rear lca bolts are seized. when you take them out the bushings will probably rip.

edit: oh btw, its not a bolt on affair. you will need to reinforce your subframe with at least a beaks kit but i've seen people rip their subframes with the kit so the safest route would to be to get the ASR subframe reinforcement plate. your suspension will also play a role in the amount of stress the sway bar puts on the subframe depending on the stiffness.
