    Which one is better for daily driven sohc crx, Prothane or ES? I don't care if it's shakey; I want to reduce as much wheel hop. Also, should I replace all of them or just the rear mount?

    Thanks

    I vote ES. I've never had the Prothane chassis bushings, but I've had both the Energy motor mounts (in my 98 FoDo) and the Prothane motor mounts (in my current CRX), and the Energy motor mount bushings fit MUCH better. The Energy's slid right in with zero problems, and I had to sand/grind/cut the fuck ouit of the prothanes to get them to fit.

    I had the Energy chassis bushings in my EG hatch, and they kicked ass.



    +1 for ES

    Thanks, I guess I'll just get the ES since i'm trying to install with hand tools.

    I should've specified; its only motor mounts.

    You can use a simple nut and bolt to press the bushings in. I'm not doing anything with the suspension yet though.

    +2 For ES. Had the full kit, and most went on with a bench vise and some elbow grease. Trailing arm bushings were another story. If I had to do again, I'd skip the eurothane and go straight to full 0 compliance metal bushings for the trailing arms.
