“Vintage” may have to be redefined when it comes to the growing popularity among car collectors with Japanese vehicles, where “vintage” can mean vehicles from the late rather than the early years of the 20th Century.

With that in mind, Michigan-based steering column producer ididit, which has specialized in steering gear for American muscle cars and hot rods, has introduced a Pro-Fab Lightweight Column designed for 1988-91 Honda Civic and CRX vehicles.

New lightweight steering columns available for Civic and CRX

“The ultra-lightweight race column weighs as little as 3 pounds, a significant weight savings over the factory column when equipped with a lightweight, quick-release steering hub and steering wheel,” the company said. 

“The Pro-Fab slides directly in place of the factory column and bolts directly to the factory mounting points and factory steering shaft.”

Trever Cornwell of ididit added that the new column “is ideal for Honda drag racing, autocross, road course and off-road racing applications.”
