Maybe dumb question, but what sways are you using. Front GDB LCAs so that makes me think GDB front sway. You said STI GC lateral links, so that makes me think GC RSB? Also, any chance you could go more in depth about the top hat mod to make the rears work?

Right now I've got stock STi front and rear and it's fine. I have cuscos to put on, but I have GD fronts because of the control arms and GC rear because of the GC lateral links, as you suspected.

As for the top hats. Basically take the top hat off, line it up with a factory GC one and re drill the outside hole. Reinsert the stud.

Cool, thanks very much! I'm trying to get my sisters 98 RBP coupe. It's got a bum tranny and a ticking time bomb of a motor so I don't think she has much use for it. I already have a full 07 driveline, suspension, brakes, etc. and a ver 7 ra ej207 looking for a new home. It should be a very fun project. You have a very inspiring car.

They are pitch and roll sensors tied into the DCCD. The swap parts came from fourstar motorsports.

cool, was that from the US 07 DCCD control unit, or an overseas spec? I saw the sensors in the pics and did some searching but only came up with the levler thing from 07 euro and asian cars.

how exactly do those sensors work ? I didn't realize they used remote sensors for sensing possible traction loss or whatnot

I'm not exactly sure but I think they they just measure the angle that the sensor is at and then sends power or braking accordingly.

Nope, we just have a JDM controller in there, and it seems to be working okay.
