    Hi! i have an crx 89 converted with b16a2 engine and y21 tranny and cv-joints, it has blown two right front cv-joints in two days! =( i dont know why.. too long? too short?

    i cant use crx 89 cv-joints, im using the ones for b16a2 (1.6 vti)... but they keep failing on me =( orgininal 160hp.

    However my front alingnment is really bad!! maybe thats the problem?

    if the axels werent the correct length, the tranny should've leaked oil.

    my tranny leaked oil.. dripping dripping dripping..
    Im using re-welded stock mountings. maybe the engine is not centerd in bay correctly? Or shuld I use some kind of aftermarket axels?

    hmm =( where can i find mesurements for the engine bay etc? so i know if it's of center.. and what type of axels shuld i use?

    specs are

    crx 89 ED9 chassi with re-welded mounts
    b12a2 engine with y21 hydralic tranny

    and i used an axel from some 92- civic 1.6 vti, wich caused my tranny to leak when rev-ing.


    thanx for the help guys! i need this shit fixed xD

    wanna see the car? =)

    1st thing I would look into are the mounts, position of a b series in that car in a big deal, I was going through place racing axles like every 3 months or so, and I was using there whole mount kit. well, they started to sag, just ever so slightly and nothing would stop my axles from blowing CV joints left and right. I would look into really getting a Hasport kit and ditching what you have now for the mounts, It will be worth it in the long run.

    You could take it to a honda/acura shop and see if you got it in there right. I have re-welded mounts in my rex. Never had a problem with it. fits in there like it was a SIR rex.
