very unnessesary swap imo, too much time, money, and electronics to figure out for no real gain in performance of any kind

It would take way to much fab work to put it in. But as stated above about electrical......There is no electronics in the 91 and down 4WS out of the preludes....its all mechanical, all the time. But yeah, pointless to do to a civic/crx, the wheelbase and turning radius are already short enough, the 4WS would make it incredibly unstable at higher speeds, its already tossable enough.

Umm, no they haven't........and the prelude is coming back as well!
I love my 91 4WS lude, it runs ****ing circles around my CRX on the track, its not as fast, but it definately out handles the civic any day.....it would be pointless, as already stated several times though, to fab it onto a civic chassis.
