I know this lift kit is for a Honda Elements. But I have been cross referencing model numbers for the top hats. And it looks like the element uses the same top hat as the CRV. 2002-2004 CRV I only cross reference the Element 2003 model.

I just wanted some input before I attempt to purchase this kit.

I'd try to find someone who's actually installed it on an Element.

I can't imagine that a 3" lift would actually work on either an Element or CR-V without causing problems with the drive shaft angles.

Did you read posts #7 and #8 from that message thread?

Edit: and the comments in post #2 about sway bar end links?

yes I read the thread. I know there is a lot of components that are effected. And a lot of parts needs to be changed out. I just wanted to give people an option for our 2gen CRV. Since there is couple kits for the 1st gen crv.

If you can make it work, great. The most the gen 1s ever got was 1" in front and 2" in the rear because anything taller would cause suspension and shaft problems.

To lift it properly, the front and rear subframes, rear trailing arms, and tie rods also need to be dropped as well as fabbing up a couple new engine mount brackets. The exhaust will most likely also need to be reangled a bit.

Agreed the transfer case may need to be adjusted as well to prevent driveline angles from being out of wack.

Maybe not. The position of the propeller shaft is pretty straight in the factory condition. So the u-joints should be able to handle a an angle s long as the new set up doesn't run out the "expansion" part of the shaft too much. The center section does slide back and forth some but I don't remember how much of a distance that is.

Yes but any lateral movement that the propeller shaft has from the factory should be maintained to limit the amount of stress on the parts affected. If you don't do alot of hard off-roading and just showing off in the mall parking lot I'd say its fine but taking it off-road is bound to break things, the few AWDs I have seen the shafts seem very thin and weak as are the joints.

I can't argue with that. :)

I learned the hard way when I lifted my first Jeep, went to crawl over an obstacle and drive shaft didn't have enough lateral movement at the T-case to deal with the twisting and everything else and came completely out, had to drive all the way home FWD style in 4Hi. I was livid but at the same time chalked it up to experience. Another option is always the custom route and have a shaft or slip joint made but then you're way past the budget build at that point and might as well go all out.

Does anyone know of a similar lift kit for the 2005 CRV (2 Generation) , just needing 1" in the front and 2" in the rear!!! "Help".....

I don't believe there is. The only lift I recall being done on a gen 2 or later is with spacers on the struts and those had to be custom made.
