I actaully went outside this morning and measured this for you lol....

From center eye of the front bolts your ABOUT 39 1/8th inches; from center eye in the rear bolts your ABOUT 39 3/4 inches....

I was measuring this by myself and had no one to hold the opposing end of the measure so this is correct give or take an 1/8th inch or so.....

But i would think if the strut bar is within an 1/8th inch of what the actual prelude measurements are then it could be properly coerced into fitting..

Well you should have some adjustments on either side of the strut bar unless you have a high dollar strut bar and only meant for certain vehicles. Mine is just a Megan Racing eGay strut bar but I like it. But there are thread bolts on either side and can be adjusted, the problem will be seeing if the mounting brackets are the same bolt pattern of the strut is the same on the Accord and Prelude. Plus too don't forget you'll more than likely have to removed that wire bracket on the passenger's strut tower side, and also you'll need clearance of your ABS brake lines on the Driver's strut tower side. Hope this helps, plus I hope it fits, good luck.

Yeah I actaully assumed it was a fixed strut bar and not adjustable. And that's why he was asking for the measurments....

I'm pretty sure that the holes line up different?? I think the accord holes are closer together than the ludes if i'm not mistaken..
