Some people have fitment issues with the 52 mm koyo and a large front sway. Don't want anyone getting screwed here.
Is this an NA or NB issue or both? I have the big FM sway--1" I think

I'm reading my head off. Some people say the koyo 55 will fit though most say you have to modify something to make it fit right with a larger than stock front sway.

Quote from [email protected], "I have the big RB sway bar in my 99 with the Koyo 55mm and there is no interferrence. I am using Brian Goodwins beefy mounting blocks. As the thermostat fixes the cool end of the temperatur limits, the radiator cannot do any harm by being more efficient. I have the 37mm Koyo in the 05 and it is fine for street use. They were only $50 difference. $300 for the 37mm and $350 for the 55mm."

Cjernigan,

I've got the hollow RB on my 94'. I've got one of these coming - wasn't worried about fit until I saw your post - hopefully there's no problems. If it gets here quick I'll let you know how it fits. $160 shipped for full aluminum is great. If you need it I'd hate for you to miss out. I think this group buy will be going a while though.

Yeah i'm really hoping this works out well for me. I'd love to save some money and end up with an awesome all alum radiator.
