The standard OEM seats that came in the 88-91 Honda CRX were, in our opinion, one of the most comfortable, well-bolstered, and high quality seats in a mass-produced economy car. After over 20 years of use, we've decided that it was time for a reupholstery project.
Out of all the parts we needed to replace, an OEM muffler has undoubtedly been the toughest to source. So difficult in fact that we've yet to find one, new or used. We go over our options.
There's no denying that restorations cost a lot of money so we'd thought it'd be helpful to document all of our expenditures and provide full transparency. Our project officially started at the end of March, 2016. Here's what we've spent thus far.
With Nancy finally off jack stands, we were super stoked to see how our 91 Honda CRX Si looked with a slightly lower stance. Unfortunately we weren't quite done...
After months of technical issues and back and forth with Koni, we were finally at the home stretch of the installation. Time to get these onto our CRX!
With our new Koni Sports unboxed, it was time to begin the installation process. Before assembly however, a few things needed to be done.
Fresh out of the box, we decided to compare our new Koni Yellows with our OEM struts. Notice that our brake line brackets fit nice and snug.
After a not-so-great experience with the Koni STR.T suspension kit, we decided to return the entire kit and replace it with Koni's top-of-the-line Yellow Sport Shocks. We'll be reutilizing our stock OE springs and using Koni's adjustable perches to lower the vehicle.
