A popular choice is just the back sway bar on these cars as it helps with the understeer. Most customers of ours choose the ASR 24mm sway bar kit with the subframe brace. PM me if you want pricing.

I just got a rear ST swaybar for my prelude as well.
Most people didn't recommend the front because it oversteers too much?
You should look into getting some better shocks and springs first before the sway bar though.

Reduction or removal of front sway bars on fwd cars is a benefit. Just get the rear, here's the theory:

Reduce understeer / less push. A little more slop in, but better traction out. Slop = Grip. Think of it as a fat girl rolling over in bed. More weight = more pressure on that side of the bed. Think outside front tire in a corner. A bigger front swaybar resists that pressure, equalizing it across the front of the car. Less pressure = More slide. Understeer 101. BBWs need love too
