I think i have that shit on the wrong way. but it was late and I was tired. I checked out a stock RSX today and the end links are supposed to be above the LCAs, not under. My bad. I guess I should stop modding at 3am.
Finished. This was an exercise in patience and waiting. The sway bar was in correctly, but needed to be above the control arms and the end links switched around. Everything fit perfectly with room to spare.
*** A helpful hint: Before connecting the sway bar back up, bolt the header together first. So much easier that way.
