Include End Links w/ Sway Bar Upgrade (s)?

06' Stock daily driver TSK 5AT w/ 122k

Should I upgrade the end links (front and back) while I'm doing the sway bar(s)? Or just inspect them for longevity and decide then?

Also, for a 22mm sway: Just back or front as well?

Insight is much appreciated!

I don't think there are any endlinks that are an upgrade from the genuine Acura ones. Those are as good as its going to get (they're quite good).

If yours aren't worn, then leave them alone.

Pro tip...if you need new endlinks, order the fronts for a 2nd gen TSX and the rears for a 7th gen Accord. The fit is the same, but the cost is much lower for some reason. I use curryacuraparts and bernadiparts for OEM stuff.

RockAuto.com has Premium/heavy duty end links listed for most Acura/Honda cars.
They look "beefier" in the product pictures but I don't have any experience in their performance.

Thank you gentlemen!

So 20-22mm is the goal and to reiterate, only doing the rear is good enough and adding a front would just be more work for a less marginal benefit?

The front bar requires removing the subframe. I felt that the rear bar by itself helped plant the car a little better.

Not sure how big of a difference the front bar makes. I'd maybe throw one on during a clutch swap...but I really couldn't be bothered to drop the subframe for JUST the bar install. Assuming this is just a street car being modded for fun?
