    the lsv engine in my Crx sits way low and sticks down about 2-3 in from the xmember and i keep hitting the header and oil pan on speed bumps...etc

    anyone else has this problem?
    can it be fixed?
    any ideas?

    That is normal. Its the mount kit that your using. If you have coilovers you can raise your car up and/or just be careful of the bumps/rough roads.

    get a skid plate, or don't run the springs that low
