Sway bar installation

What is the stock mm size for the RSX? I bought a rear 22mm sway bar a long time ago and hate to see it just sitting in the garage. If I plan on putting it in, what are some good bushings and any DIY instructions?

It puts the fun back in driving again Feels like there is more contact with the road going around corners at higher speeds so it gives you more confidence. Still a little body roll but its been greatly improved.

If you haven't done this with your RSX, I highly recommend it. Very easy to install and not too expensive
