    I dont know anyone who has that kit. I would go with the BLOX since it's probably the same CNC'd or lathed material.

    Cool. Thanks.

    @Br3TT : Have you done the upgraded compliance bushings on the front lower control arm also?

    Here is what they look like. The smaller ones go in the rear and the bigger ones go in the front between the subframe and the car. The ones with the cutout that looks like it would hold a bolt those obviously go between the subframe bolt and the subframe itself.

    I had my subframe off because I was installing my new transmission, but from looking at it I think you would be able to lower the subframe just enough to slip these in one at a time with the bolt out.

    I don't know if I missed a comment. It looks like Blox stopped with the 8th gen Civic. Will the 8th gen fit the 9th?

    I'd definitely be interested in hearing some feedback about these after you have them installed and driven on them for a while.

    With the compression forming the aluminum, I wonder if these are something that should be replaced each time the subframe is dropped?

    yes, others have said they're supposed to be replaced each time. So if you've got to replace your clutch etc you'd need a new set each time supposedly.
