  1. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    So at the bottom of the shifter arm underneath the cover, the white plastic ball cracked and broke into two. Anybody have any idea what that’s called so I can try to buy a replacement?
  2. Suspension & Brakes RSX
    Bought these right before my car was totaled brand new in box. Went with these because no need of modifying to fit like some other brands no clearance issues and sealed. $50 shipped
  3. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Picked up a 2006 RSX Type S that was wrecked on the front passenger side. Did some pretty good damage to the wheel and lower control arm. I decided to swap everything out on that side to be safe and have already swapped in a new subframe. The issue/questions I am running in to pertain to the...
  4. Suspension & Brakes RSX
    Just uploaded on ebay for 100. Bought a set of BC extended ball joints and never installed them. I recently sold the car, so I have no need for them anymore, and just want a quick sale. i paid 150-200 for them, and then waited three months for buddy club to catch up to me and fill the order...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    The old suspension has a tapered hole where the tie rod would drop in at. The new coilovers don’t. It sits higher than the old setup. Here’s a pic. Any comments? Is this normal ? Am I missing something ? everything ive seen says these should be plug and play. the tie rod ends definitely dont...
  6. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hello, I have an 05 RSX base and needed to replace the lower ball joints. I ordered 05 base RSX ball joints AND lower control arms because the arms weren't in the best shape either. So as I was going to replace the ball joints, I realized that the new ones had a diameter that was too small to...

    Hello fellow rsx owners. My mechanic recently told me I need new ball joints (front lower) After doing some research I found some aftermarket from mevotech that they say fits 05-06 rsx (pn ms60508) these are only 30cad a piece cause its just the ball joint where as acura wants 300cad a piece...

  9. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I was wondering if the RCA Ball Joints from Hardrace will have clearance issues with the factory 02-04 Type S 16s? I don't want to install them and find out that the control arm will be rubbing the inside of my wheel. Anyone have this setup?

  11. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hi guys, i have a 2006 rsx premium and when i start from a complete stop or come to a complete stop there is a clunk/popping noise coming from the drivers side wheel well. My guess was that it is the ball joint. I took it to the mechanic and he confirmed that it is the ball joint that is going...

    Does anyone know why Honda chose to use a larger ball joint stud for the 05-06 DC5?
  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I've noticed that this forum has quite a few solutions to finding ball joints for the Acura rsx, but I've come across some issues. I'm new to cars (About to turn 20) and I do not want to purchase the wrong thing. Pretty much my front lower ball joints are shot, but all the answers I'm finding...
  15. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I just blew a left lower ball joint and I am being told by everyone that I have to purchase the entire knuckle. I saw BC sells some balljoints... but my car is not lowered. My car is completely stock suspension. Is there anything I can do to not have to purchase the whole knuckle? Will the BC...
  16. The DIY Garage RSX
    I've looked through the DIY list and tried a search, but I can't find anything on just replacing the lower ball joint boot. The shop manual appears to assume that the knuckle is already out of the car when it gets to the boot replacement. Are there any directions on replacing just the boot with...

  18. Southern California For Sale: Local Pick-Up
    Name your price and come pick them up in 90017 today or tomorrow 31st or the 1st. I am moving on the 2nd and do not want to travel with these. I don't recall the exact mileage but by the end they were getting a little "bouncy" and will probably need a rebuild soon (if not now). The titanium...
  19. The DIY Garage EP3
    So I went to the Honda dealer to get a quick point inspection and they said that I needed new front lower ball joint boots. Looked at the boots on mine and they're pretty messed up after 172k on them. Question is, how do I even replace the boots on the ball joints? I've seen plenty of videos...
