I have this installed on a 2017 SI.
Save yourself a headache and drop the exhaust off the rear hangers when installing.
I have it set to the middle points which is supposed to have a stiffness rate of 950lbs. For reference the type r stock rear sway bar is 721lbs.
The car feels much more responsive and planted on turn in. You can carry a lot more speed through turns and body roll has been reduced a lot.
I wouldn't recommend using the inner most holes unless you also upgrade the front sway bar. As right now at highway speeds it requires a bit more precision when making sharp movements. I can easily see the inner most holes inducing snap oversteer.
Overall it's a good product, nice quality construction and stronger brackets. Also good variability as you can drastically change how stiff or soft it is depending on your set up needs.
