Re: Highest Quality Suspension Parts Master List

If you need replacement ball joint boots the following Energy Suspension ones will work. One downside is that these don't use any metal clips like the OE ones so they are less secure and more likely to fall off while you have the ball joint popped. FRONT: TBD, I bought the same part numbers as the r...

Re: Highest Quality Suspension Parts Master List

These are ENERGY SUSPENSION 16.10102 bushings installed on the 4WS gearbox. This kit is originally for a 90-93 Accord front rack. The wrap around bushing requires 3/8 - 1/2" removed from its length. The round bushings need ~1/16" removed from one of them so that the overall height is similar to the ...

D2A4 - Rebuilding and Upgrading Information (Work in Progress)

When rebuilding the transmission some of the main things you are likely to replace are bearing, seals, synchronizers, and possibly shims. In most cases you will probably not need to replace the gears themselves. A lot of the D2A4 internals aren't available from Honda any more and the ones that still...

Re: Highest Quality Suspension Parts Master List

That sucks. I think someone on Preludepower had to turn down the rear tie rods to M12x1.25 to use them. I may need to investigate adapting those aftermarket 2WS toe rods (or just the rod end) to work with the 4WS setup.

Unfortunately the B20a only ever came in 88-91 Preludes so it doesn't have much aftermarket support. But there are some options for pistons+rods, https://motiveforceperformance.com sells them.

Slightly Extended Studs

If you want longer studs without going with the super long "tuner" studs you can use Dorman 610-408 studs (they are sold as a 10 pack). They are 12mm or almost 1/2" longer than stock. The center caps on the OE wheels will still be able to fit.
