i have a 88 crx si and i'm in the process of doing a b18b1 swap with a b18a1 trans. the transmission came from a 90 integra that has a b18a1 in it. Recently i ordered 90-93 integra axles for my car but while i was in the process of installing the driverside and for some weird reason it wouldnt fit into place. Has anybody ran into the same problem and if so how did you fix it?
Well after cleaning off the hub and axle splines and counting all of the splines i found out that the splines on the crx hub is 23 and the spines on the axle is 26 . Now i'm at a major stand still. Would anybody know what i should do next to fix this problem?
i've never used 90-93 integra hubs but i have read that it works. BUT it also makes the car have positive camber unless you have the car lowered then you would have nothing to worry about. Just get an alignment and it should be good.
What made you think your 88 crx was an SI? do you have a original sunroof? D16A6 engine? there is also the OEM rear sway bar. Any pics of the car? I'd like to see.
'88 CRX front hubs are identical and are like the HF hubs. Regardless of model. They also ALL have rear drums, where the 89-91 CRX Si has rear discs.
Your CRX would only be an Si if it has a factory sunroof.
Any CRX/Civic hubs will work, find you some 26 spline ones at a pull-a-part or something. DA ones work but are iffy/need something to install them, same with EG/EJ hubs but you REALLY need to search for a how to if you go with those, I know nothing about that.
1989-1991 CRX DX/Si hubs should work, 89-91 Civic DX/Si/LX/EX hubs should work.
The car does have factory sunroof. I think the previous owner swapped the hubs just to use on another car. The only crx around where I live is at a salvage yard in 3 town and it's an 88 si. But there are 2 da 90 integras there. Im gonna have to do alot of research to see if it could work.
If 90's integra knuckles is the only thing that I need to make everything work how much camber would it be off by? The front springs one the car have been cut. The old owner wanted to do the rice way instead of buying coil overs or drop srpings
DA (90-93) integra knuckles are a great upgrade. You should grab the 4040 prop valve, master cylinder and rear disc brakes while you're at it. The camber is not a big factor, I'm lowered just a little and the alignment was in spec.
