    no


    the CRX uses torsion bars in the front...theres no struts/springs

    its easy to lower it if thats what you're looking for
    -turn of a couple nuts in the front, new springs in the back...done

    the Suspension Technique f&r sway bars are like $300 for the set on ebay

    I saw NOS Mugen torsion bars, internal sway bars, and springs for sale on redpepperracing a few months ago when i was parting out my 1g



    -still have my fiberglass 1 piece ZC hood if you're interested :thumbsup:

    Browntops are around, I had one when I had my 1st 1g.

    B-series motors are big $$ to swap in...the mounts alone are $600 for EW's

    you can pick up an 86-87 D16A1 at a junkyard for $150. With some bolt-ons and a decent suspension the 1g's are very competitive in auto-x

    let me know on the hood...its in Mass....just sitting in my garage up there
