no autocross but driven hard on street.

The ACS are made by Eibach. I had the RDs before and noticed that the rears were shaped differently than the stock bars. RDs also came with different links. I had the front set at full soft and rear at full stiff. The car was still not quite neutral, everything else was stock except for 255 rear tires and X-Brace.

So, I decided I needed a thicker rear bar. When I switched to ACS, I noticed the rears were shaped exactly like stock. The only difference is the bar thickness. Fit was perfect. With the front set at stiff and rears set at stiff with Bilstein/Eibach and 245 rears, the car is very neutral.
