Question Rear Stabilizer Bar and Links

I've found that my Rear Passenger Side Stabilizer Link popped out on my 2004 Honda Civic EX Coupe, so instead of replacing the busted link with a cheap new one I was pondering an upgrade to both Rear Links and the Stabilizer Bar. Can the community provide some good intel on this thought... Is it a good idea to upgrade this? Am I best off going with an aftermarket high quality Stabilizer Bar or am I better off installing a comparable Honda Stabilizer from a different vehicle? What is an ideal diameter size for a vehicle that's a DD, but one that I enjoy hard cornering with? I don't want to go over board with the spending on this, but at the same time if there's value in upgrading the whole thing verses simple replacing the busted link, then I'd like to do it. I want to base my decision on what's the best value per the return in handling performance. Any help is very much appreciated.

Replacing the broken endlink will be faaaar cheaper than buying a new swaybar kit. A new rear bar will be a couple hundred bucks easy. The car will handle slightly better, but in most cases, especially on a car that may be otherwise stock suspension wise, it won't be a very significant improvement.

IMO, just replace the endlink and save your money for other things.

i would recommend Moog for the links there really beefy and cheap. if you decide to upgrade the bar this in my opinion is your best option CorSport: Honda - 2001-2005 Honda Civic - 62.1006
