90_lude_s_27 is on a distinguished road
Dilemma

i have a 90 lude Si... NON 4ws, jus a basic Si with the b21a1.... im swappin a jdm B20a into it, and got myself fixign other things while i was waiting o the engine deal to fall thru. I started taking off the rear knuckles to throw in extended studs, new bearigns, and ball joints.... there are 3 ball joints in the rear... upper, middle, and lower.... i think the middle is also considered the lower as well, BUT its in something i believe is called the control trailing arm. Here is a thread i found on here from a while back about this part....
http://www.preludepower.com/forums/s...d.php?t=242734

As the thread states, the ball joint is fixed in that arm permantntly... Hondas bright idea to make it all one piece. HOWEVER, I looked around everywhere to find this part, and NOBODY seems to carry it. EVERY auto parts store i go to or look up doesnt even list it. Finally i bit the bullet and called Honda... expecting a $200 price tag as well as a special order statement, i was shocked as the parts guy told me the part is now discontinued.

Doing my research, i found plenty information about the 4ws conversion... whats needed, what i have to do/buy, etc.... So my dilemma is, Should i just convert it to 4ws? if so, what would the total price tag be around?
OR....
Does anybody have any help/information/parts guru wisdom about locating these Control trailing arms? The best I can do is Ebay, junkyard, and craigslist. Ebay and CL don't seem to really list much.... and i can go to 500 junkyards before i finally find one that has the car with the parts i need. I'm not trying to waste more time.

All help is greatly appreciated and Thank You in advance
