I know it's wierd how identical they look, the only real difference is the bolts that hold the wishbone in place, if I remember the prelude ones bolts up through the top and not the side like this

The only difference with the calipers is the bolts holding them onto caliper carrier they are long bolt but they have the Allan key fitment instead of a normal bolt which I found strange on a Honda lol

Agreed not as good as the prelude, but the lower arms on each side were replaced the day before I bought it plus I got a full set of bushes for them there are quite a few differences that I've noticed whilst working on it but one thing I'm finding hard is sourcing parts for it, it's quite tricky for the tourer
