    lude arm how to help!

    hey I got my lude arms today and I was going to use the how to but its not working....so from what I gather,I take the lude arm off from the lude arm mount(one with long bolt)and just take the accord arm off,but reuse the accord arm mount and slap it in there correct? I will just have to space it out to get it to fit correctly inside of the arm mount?

    Smufguy has 3g Lude arms....They will work. Basically you take the Prelude Arm and the Accord Bolt, and use washers on the ends.

    You just use the whole prelude arm. The part you are taking about is what gives you the camber adjustment and that is the whole purpose of this upgrade. Hit me on AIM if you need more help

    If you still need help I have my set of lude arms and an old accord arm setting in the garage I can probably get you pictures tonight. You'll need 6 3/8" washers for each arm. 3 on each side of the arm. I picked up the washers at home depot, they were like a buck for a pack of 4.
