Hello all. My names Abdul. I’ve been on this forum a while now mainly ghosting about on how to’s and checking out other builds.
I bought my ek9 around 2017 as a b20 frank conversion. I have now stripped all that and gone boost with a b18 built by @robthedoc. The plan is full restore so follow this thread. May need some help and guidance along the way.

Currently it’s in the body shop. I’m having the full front end resprayed. So everything’s out. Fuel/brake lines, wiring. Took off all the old seam sealer. Had it tiger sealed.
I took off the old under seal and I’ve had it stonechipped. Using the tetrodyl stone chip.
Will upload previous pics later when I sort my phone out.

Anyone got an idea where the traction bar bracket goes. I can’t seem to figure it out. There’s only one hole on the control arm but 2 required. Any one know how to…

Think its the holes lined up with the bolt in your second photo there. At least thats where we connected some angle brackets for ours on the race civic

It’s a 2 bolt bracket. There’s suppose to be another there but I think there on non type r models from what I’ve gathered. I might just chop the end off and run it like that with one bolt. Surely that’s how ppl must’ve done it on type r models?

Traction bars are made for dc2/ eg / mb / delsol lower arms from what i have noticed.

as they have the 2 bolts that are required for the traction bar bracket to bolt to.

I have a traction bar on my ek9 but i have dc2 subframe installed.
im not to sure if this requires normal ek subframe to be run with dc2 etc lower arms.

However I’ve done some digging and found full race do one with a one bolt u bracket. So I’ve ordered a bracket and gonna see how it goes.
