Like= rsb= rear sway bar. fsb= front sway bar. Like talking about upgrading your front & rear sway bars to bigger ones, if your doing the springs & dampers(struts, shocks). Your there ordering, why not get all the parts at once. Felix

thats the diameter in milli meter. I believe you have a 21mm front bar & a 20mm rear bar. Upgrade to a thicker bars along w/ your spring/damper kit will improve the cornering & handling of your foci. Quick way to figure out what you have now is grab a 21mm & a 20mm open end wrench & fit the open end over your sway bars to see what size bars you have.

Sounds easy enough to do. I can do that and report back. How much could I expect to be placing into this full kit?

I just checked when I got to work this morning and there are no bars that run from left to right side underneath. So no, my car does not have one.
