2017 ILX Suspension and Brakes    (Score: 1, Normal) 02-20-2017 22:51

Hey guys,

I just purchased a 2017 ILX A-Spec (Canadian Spec) this month.
I really like this car as a comfortable daily, with good fuel mileage and sportiness. And I love the remote engine starter in the winter!

Anyway, I have a few questions regarding parts.
I am looking for some sportier brake pads and rotors for the ILX and there seem to have nothing for the ILX right now. So I cross-referenced the OEM part numbers to see which other Honda/Acura product it shares parts with, and the ILX seems to have the same front brakes as a 16+ Accord Sport/Touring/V6 and rear caliper is from 9th gen Civic Si with the rear rotors from 16+ Accord Sport/Touring/V6. Have anybody upgraded the brakes on their 16+ ILX? Can someone please confirm what I just listed is correct?

Also, I am looking to purchase a slightly bigger rear sway bar from the Si. If I am not mistaken, the 13 Si comes with an 18mm and the 14+ come with a 20mm and the 16+ ILX come with 20mm/15mm.
Have anyone done this upgrade before? If so, how does the car drive with the thicker bar?

I looked online and found this list of parts need for the rear sway upgrade.
BOLT-WASHER (10X30) - 93404-10030-08
BRACKET, L. RR. STABILIZER - 52318-TR7-A01
BRACKET, R. RR. STABILIZER - 52317-TR7-A01
BUSH, RR. STABILIZER HOLDER x2 - 52306-TR7-A51
HOLDER, STABILIZER BUSH x2 - 52308-TR7-A00
SPRING, RR. STABILIZER - OEM 20 mm RSB - 52300-TR7-A51

My other question is how many of those 10x30 bolt-washers do I need for the install?

Thanks in advanced guys!

Josh
