I applied for removal of restrictions on my green card (marriage based) in June 2011. I still have not received an approval and I am now eligible to apply for naturalization. If I don't wait for my CRI89 and apply for naturalization, would it delay my process? Is it better to wait?
Although you may be technically eligible .. I'd wait .. there must be a reason that they are taking this long to process the I-751.
Take a copy of your papers to an attorney to see if he/she can spot potential problems.

Do not rely completely on information you get on a website. It is always wise to consult personally with an immigration attorney before taking any action.

I would recommend that you consult with an experienced local immigration attorney. Every USCIS district has a different approach to resolving your dilemma. For example, in Los Angeles, you can file the N-400 if eligible and the officer is trained to adjudicate both the I-751 and the N-400. Good luck.
