  1. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Car is a 2005 Civic Si EP3 US spec car. I'll start from what caused the issue. Car was running fine, no revving when braking. The rear passenger side caliper had started to seize up, so I figured I'd go ahead and replace both rear calipers along with the rotors and pads. Got through that process...
  2. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I have recently changed all for pads on my rsx (duralast gold ceramic pads) when i brake hard the brakes feel weird, the best way i would describe it is kinda like the vibration of a controller when shooting in a game? Like a sort of recoil? The pads still have meat on them since theyre new and...
  3. Wheels & Tires
    I drive a 2005 RSX Base and recently replaced the calipers and rotors on all 4 wheels. These calipers and rotors have no consequential differences from the original. Me and my grandpa went around to all four brakes and properly bled them. Starting with the rear passenger brake, pumping pressure...
  4. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Looking to do the front brakes on my 06 type s, was thinking about going with some wildwood calipers and then some higher (not necessarily top-end) pads and rotors. Any input, reviews or places to find good deals would be greatly appreciated!!
  5. Wheels & Tires
    So I want to order some ESR SR08 rims, 17x9.5 +20/ can I go wider rims in the back or will anything bigger than 9.5 look dumb. I want my fitment flush. Tires: nitto neogen 215/45 Coilovers: bc racing My question is, if I was to get wilwood front calipers would the rims rub against the calipers...
  6. The DIY Garage RSX
    Hi. The 2006 RSX will need rear brakes pretty soon (<5000miles). The way my son drives that's like a few weeks!! I don't know what's on there now other than they are drilled rotors. I'd imagine they are middle to higher end consumer "performance" quality. I plan on replacing the rotors and...

  9. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hey guys one of my brakes was leaking on my RSX-S. Got it replaced. System was fully dry and there was no pressure at all. Tried bleeding 3 times following proper procedures used by many on this forum but I couldn't get any pressure at all. Tried manual bleeding, and a motive power bleeder. Even...
  10. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Thanks all for the recommendations in my previous thread. I went with the Powerstop brake kit from Amazon for an extremely reasonable price of $180 My mechanic put them on today - labor was around $200 to install them, which seemed pretty reasonable. Overall - I could not be happier. This...

  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hello everyone, I have a base auto 06 RSX. The only mods I have is a front sway bar and Short RAM intake. New brake pads and rotors were installed only 1,500 miles ago. I usually don't slam on my brake pedal until it reaches the floor unless I'm forced to. But, whenever I do suddenly slam on...
  17. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    My Rsx needs new brakes pads but I don't know if I should replace the rear or front ones which ones does the Rsx use to stop while braking ?
  18. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Anyone have these? Anyone know anyone who has these? I can't find any references to a set on an RSX even though it is listed as a supported vehicle. The really interesting part is they have a parking brake solution via a couple options so your rear rotors and calipers will match. I think they...
  19. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I have a 2006 RSX and every morning when it's cold (around 40 degrees F), when I first start out driving the brakes are dangerously failing. I can press them all the way to the floor and the vehicle takes a very long time to stop. When I bought the car used (about 3 months ago) they told me they...
  20. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hi Guys, So recently (past couple months) I have noticed that after I let the car sit for a while (overnight, for example), and start the next morning, when I first start to take off, I hear a one-time clinking sound that seems like it's coming from the rear wheels. Only happens once, and...
