N.B., Norseman--your 91 is one of the "2nd generation CRXes", which ran from 88-91 in the US. They were all fuel injected (of the 1st gens, only the Si was injected), and had double wishbone suspension at all four corners. The 1st gens used torsion bars and a solid rear axle.

I wouldn't recommend a large rear sway bar on a 2nd-generation CRX. It would make the car far more prone to swapping ends, which isn't so good for fuel economy.

RockAuto Auto Parts, I think it was like 70 bucks. The only hard to find parts are the side moldings, and sometimes the fenders.

I sold it last August. Carb problems were annoying me, and the car really didn't have the horse power for hill climbing. I hated having to floor it to climb up some roads at legal speeds. I got an offer I couldn't refuse (more than double what I had in it), and sold it. Here's a few photos after the paint and wheels:




I maintain that a 1G CRX HF with a later HX/VX motor would be a fantastic car. Not only fun to drive -- with more power than the period Si had -- but also very efficient with the car's insanely low curb weight.
