Spoon did not invent the rigid collar kit. Spoon and Rigid worked together to collaborate to make a Honda Market for the parts. Hence why you are rocking two stickers on your windscreen. Spoon is in most ways a distributor of the collar kit.
The collars are developed for a range of vehicles from Japanese to European. Hence why the link above from Speed hunters is showing a GTR being used.

Also, that is a great link and i read the whole thing. It really is a perfect solution for the GTR chassis.

For The S2000 you do not need to take off/ drop the subframe. you can loosen it and do one side at a time simply by tilting it. You do the same tilt when changing out Clutch, trans, etc.


You would loosen all the bolts giving them enough thread where the subframe hangs a little. (Look at the link i provided from Gotuning's blog of Aarons S2000) You then take off one bolt at a time giving you enough space to drop the bolt, insert the collar, and then rethread to its "Loose" position. you would do this to all the bolts one by one.


Time? I think a slow person take time to in their garage with floor jacks, jacks stands, tool prep, IG & Facebook breaks, should take no more than an hour to hour and half.

I will be doing this next month, thanks for the tip! I have access to a lift and every tool I could possibly need, so I anticipate this taking an hour, tops.

ive used these on my road going ITR and I must say I was also impressed with the difference they made, undulations in the road are soaked up much better!

will be getting a set for the S2K I eventually buy!

After doing more research, I think I'm just going to go ahead and do all of them. My car has 114k miles now, and could probably use the new hardware. Thanks again for the tip.

Anyone know what the part numbers for the subframe bolts are? I plan on installing these collars soon and want to replace the bolts!

Subframe is referred to as "Cross Beam" in the Honda parts catalogs. You need:

2x: 8 90161-SR3-000 BOLT, FLANGE (14X107)
2x: 9 90161-S2A-000 BOLT, FLANGE (14X160)
2x: 10 90162-S2A-000 BOLT, FLANGE (14X130)
2x: 11 90163-S2A-000 BOLT, FLANGE (12X202)
4x: 12 90164-S2A-000 BOLT, FLANGE (12X162)

I believe the part #s are the same for each model year but you will want to make sure you select your model year to make sure. Honda parts sites also list the total quantity needed on each part as well when adding to the cart.

The ones that you remove to install the collars, so 6 bolts F & R that hold the subframe to the chassis.

Can anyone give me a quick DIY on how to install these? I'd figure I would tackle this in my driveway instead of paying $200 dollars in labor.

Just use a jack on the subframe to support it and unbolt?
