I don't know why it wouldn't fit as other KA users have used it with no issues. See Project Builds, Finn's KA24DET.

I dunno, rear sump maybe. Even Futofab says it may not fit all applications. Just know it does not fit.

keep in mind that the sway bar can collide with the tc rod if not fully thought through. a custom bar bent up at a local spring shop is cheap.... but it takes a lot of planing.

Thats why i would have Andy at Specialty bent up a custom one if i cant find an existing. He would have to have the car though

a tow from squamish to delta could be cheaper than shipping a bar across the border lol
