'98 FR Lower Control Arm Bushes

Hey guys I am wondering if anyone knows the bush size of these two bushes (marked with red boxes). I asked a local honda dealer they could not tell me only that they would be $50~ to get. For that money I would rather grab a poly or superpro. Neither have listings for this model unfortunately.



Any help would be great cheers.

Re: '98 FR Lower Control Arm Bushes

Not sure about the size, but the top bushing in the picture lists at $7, and the bottom lists at $21. Dealerships will overcharge you on parts, but if you go in with the part number and list price, they will give you list price.

Case in point, when I ordered my EGR port plugs yesterday locally, they tried to charge me $1.10 a piece. I told him list price was .37, and he says, "Yea I can do .37."

Edit: list prices are $7.35 and $21.37 to be exact.

I don't know about the lowers but when looking to do mine, I found that the base model UPPERs are not replaceable and only the SH was. You have an SH or Base?

Re: '98 FR Lower Control Arm Bushes

I am pretty sure I have the base model. Its an Australian one and as far as I can tell the sh model was the American one.

The Honda dealer here are a bunch of idiots refuse to sell it anyless. Maybe someone knows an online store that might have them that I could ask for the size of them.

I have a good local shop here that can get pretty much any bush with dimensions and I can get them for cheap. Might just have to pull it out and measure it up.

Re: '98 FR Lower Control Arm Bushes

Again I dont know the size but like you say you either have to buy the bush from Honda or go polybush. If you go polybush and use Energy Suspension bits, use the 92-96 Prelude parts for Base / non-ATTS Ludes. The only bit of the 92-96 kit that wont fit the 5th gen is the front upper control arms, you need to use Type-SH upper control arm bushes.
