    I was just looking for some input on what brand of bushing i should use on the front of my crx. The one on the tie rods and knuckles look pretty bad. thanks Also where's a good place to buy them for a good price? GOD BLESS

    ive heard alot of good remarks about Energy's suspension bushings. if you're looking for a good price online, try options auto salon. they have a good rep for service and prices.

    here is the exact page:

    yeah Energy suspension, i think www.summitracing.com has them the cheapest i've seen, they have em listed for the 88-91 Civic(they dont specify a set for the CRX, but still the same shit)

    I love the ES bushings on my 95, and the CRX will probably get a set too.

    hey guys can any of you comment on the difficulty of the instal of the ES bushings? ive looked into them but figured it wouldnt be worth it to try to install. and would be wayyy too expansive to have done by a shop. someone give some input

    its not hard if you know how to take your suspension apart..i did the tie rods(which you wont need to do since you have the jimfab bar,lucky guy)and i did the front sway bar endlinks which is ez with the car on jacks and another jack to to push the sway bar up and then you can install the end links..i didnt do all of them since they looked ok,but someday when i have time i will..good luck bro

    im not sure i understand. the jimfab bar doesnt replace the tie rods. it replaces the front crossmember and radius rods. the main bar bolts to the frame, and the bars bolt to the LCA. explain...
