wobble

  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    All, Here is a weird one that just popped up. Between about 45 and 55 mph my 2002 Type S has a soft side to side "wobble". The wobble is stronger if I am accelerating harder, and barely there with the clutch in. It is not a shaking, or hard vibrating and I don't hear anything else associated...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, so I've been doing some research on my own and I'd like to specifically troubleshoot MY car now. I get a wobbling steering wheel past 60 mph and it's the most annoying thing. Some info: 1.) Car was wobbling at high speed when I first bought it. Had a bent rear wheel from the...

    Whenever i take a hard right turn or go over a big bump my wheel will wobble but never does any other time. Ive tried changing the axle, the hub bearing and tightening the ball joint and top hub bolts but nothing seems to help i can also hear a rattle coming from that side any ideas?
  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I'm getting a wobble in the steering wheel around 50-55 mph. I looked at the tires and there are no weights. Would that be the issue or would it be something in the front end? I don't want to spend the money on a balance if the car is known for having other problems.

    Hey CRSX :) So when I get up to high speed with my car at constant speed (no acceleration, not turning) I get wobbles. I have switched the rims on the rear onto the front before and have found that one of (or more than one of) my rims is/are bent because the wobbling was exaggerated and...
  6. Wheels & Tires
    Hey everyone, Brand new on the site. Just picked up a 2002 RSX base with 140,000 miles as a winter beater/commuter for the next year or two. I come from a VW background and appreciate some elements of the VW tuning scene. I'm wondering if anyone on this site has had any experience using...

    I just got my Kumho Ecsta 4X tires mounted on a set of 05-06 Type S (oem) wheels, and I have the dreaded wheel wobble/shake. I had a friends shop install them (I was there to watch/help during the install) in Annapolis, and they balanced out ok it seemed. I test drove it and they shook at 45-65...

    I replaced my stock struts all the way around with the Tokico advanced handling kit. It came with the blue struts with some red lowering springs. I havent found any documentation for how much they are supposed to drop but it was advertised for 1 inch. I wanted to do koni's but I found out my...

    i have a hella bad wobble when between 38mph and 50 mph. i dont know what it is and i have looked at all the suspension and bushings making sure all the bolts are tight and everything is good. i still cannot find out what it is. im thinking maybe an axle? but if it was an axle i'd think it...
  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    OK so this problem just started a few days ago. Under acceleration it feels like the car wobbles. It gets worse under heavier acceleration. I checked all of the basics like tire pressure and wheel torque. I dont think it is a tire balancing issue. What are other things that could be wrong here...

    I have 32,000 on my Type-S, same stock tire, never been remove for anything. recently I start to notice a little subtle wobbling noise when i go about 40MPH on flat road. From experience of having old cars in the past I know when a tire gets worn off becomes thinner and sometimes a "lump" on a...

    Hey Guys, I just recently put the MZ wing on my DSM Type S...I think it looks great (itll look better with a semi Subtle Body Kit eventually), but Wings West neglected to inform it's buyers (and I neglected to look into it further thinking everything would be fine) that the trunk would be...
