    I can't find any kind of guides for our cars to replace the front ball joints. Do you need to take the axle nut off? I tried standing on the end of my breaker bar and that bitch won't move. Any info is helpful :wavey:

    I searched through FAQs and Suspension but don't see much for amateurs. I bought an 03 Type S for daughter. It has 139k miles on it. My mechanic checked it out and said it was real clean - just needed a starter that was going (meshing sound on cold starts). The SRS light was on as well and...

    I'm replacing the suspension on my 02 RSX. I needed to replace the front compliance bushings on the control arms and the ball joints.

  12. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I don't want to go for the billet arm as i have a short shifter to go on the original plastic arm which I want to retain. also thinking about this as the cost is minimal my understanding is the higher tension spring will move the shifter back to neutral with less looseness versus stock? what...

    i just went to dealer and did a overall check. The dealer said that one of my lower joint ball is wore out and is very dangerous. The parts is 1000 and labor is 582. I just wonder if this price is reasonable. And if I leave the ball joint there, what would be the worst case? Thank you for your...

    I replaced both lower ball joint earlier and upon tightening the castle nut, it went past the cotter pin hole and squished the ball joint rubber boot. I can still turn the castle nut easily. Do I keep tightening until I can't anymore and then torque to spec?
