Question 90-93 Traction bar

Hello CB7 fam, I'm looking for a traction bar for my 92 ex sedan and can't find one anywhere but the overpriced ebay ones. Someone told be that you can use a 92-96 prelude one. Does anyone have any experience with this? I don't wanna waste my money on something that wont work.

Lol, I'm the one that said it, and I'll say it here: the 92-96 Prelude bar fits the CB7 chassis.

Don't buy anything from ebay, either. The traction bars are a much poorer design than those from Innovative or ESP.

At least you did the smart thing and came here to verify or do more research instead of listening to a bunch of people with their thumbs up their ass.

Thanks for this info. In the next month I was going to bite the bullet and just order the Innovative Traction Bar for the Prelude in hopes that it fit. I've read that the front cross member swaps over in a very old thread.

Unhappy

Sorry for a late question. My traction bar broke and i'm in need of a new traction bar. My friend has a prelude traction bar. So are we able to use prelude traction bars on 91 accord. If yes what year prelude traction bars can we use???

The 92 - 96 generation prelude (BB2) traction bars from Innovative

Understand that the Innovative bar has a mount for the cross beam that runs between the frame rails but not the torque mount. They apparently sell another bracket for torque mounts that you can weld/mount onto the top.

Or you could make your own bracket, if you're innovative enough.

Today I emailed Innovative if this traction bar would fit with an automatic. I suprisingly found out the answer is yes, and another interesting thing.

This is the response email from Innovative.

Good afternoon Will,



Thanks for reaching out to us! The product you mentioned 50110 (prelude/accord comp bar) will in fact work with automatic and manual transmissions. As for as the torque mount option goes we are still currently waiting for that year prelude/accord to come by the shop for fitting. You wouldn’t happen to live in orange county would you?

So does anyone live in or near Orange County, that has some time, could you do some test fitting with Innovative? It would be awesome to have a traction bar option with the front torque mount again. Sadly since it seems ESP is gone Innovative is stepping it up.

I didn't think about it, I should have weighed it before I put it back on the car, but any idea how heavy the stock setup is?

Here is a second follow up email asking if we got a car test fitted how long would it be to get products in production. I also put a link to this forum thread showing we are trying to get someone to them hopefully.

Good Morning Will,

Thanks so much for the forum post! If we could find someone soon, we’d ask them to come in early next week. It takes about 2 days to mock up the design and around 3-4 days for fitting and testing. So were pretty much talking about a week for the complete part. I can keep your email handy and let keep you up to date on when someone comes in for testing and when its ready, I was thinking about putting up a social media post looking for a test car today as well. Thanks again will!
