Thanks mate. Appreciate the feedback. Canít wait to do more. Got a noise coming from the back suspension. Itís gradually got worse over the course of a year. Now itís creaking over every single bump in the road. Itís like something is loose that kind of noise. Will need to have a look at the rear suspension.

That was the reason I asked earlier, thought it might have been the camera angle too though.

I found them harder to get than the R when I had my Type S

Good find

@deni.babe is your car lowered? Looks good. If so what was the drop? And what else did you do to suspension when you lowered?

Thanks for that. Much appreciated info. Will price it all up. Iím hoping that will sort out the annoying constant creaking at the rear end.

To be honest the creaking sounds like a bush but Iíve never encountered it so not sure?
Is it only on one side?

Itís coming from both sides. It only used to happen periodically now. All the time. When I get a day off work ok Thursday Iíll have to have to a good look and a research. So could possibly be a bush you reckon? Sorry Iíve never worked with suspension before. Please excuse my ignorance but how many are in the rear suspension? One either side?

bushes are on the axle and are a pain too do removal of axle I think, creaking sound on mine is the handbrake if I don't pull it up enough mine creaks.. if it's constant creaking then i'd say rear shockers https://8g.hondaclub.cz/files/servic...-06-004-05.pdf . if you need new shockers take a look here very cheap . https://www.onlinecarparts.co.uk/

Brilliant thanks for links. Will do shocks all round. Itís a constant creaking. Whilst moving and when I bounce the rear of the car when stationary. They donít seem too badly priced actually. Quite surprised. Thanks

Thereís a good chance your drop links will be seized if you do the front struts.
The nuts can be a real pain to get off but thereís a Ďhow toí on the forum that might help

Otherwise excellent thread

Aye I have seen the Ďhow toí and expected drop links to be seized like. I guess what Iíll do is create a plan of what I will expect to replace and replace it all. That way itíll be sound for many more happy miles.

I will put the plan up here and if my kind civinfoers were to go through it and have a look thatíd be awesome

I got lucky finding it. Not far from me neither which was good. Itís in good Condition but thereís marks on arches where mud flaps were fitted which canít be avoided so Iím going to fit mud flaps too. (Need to find some)

Oh really? Thatís a good package actually.. Iíd be interested in finding out a bit more

Got a photo of the marks in question? May be just dirt. On the good side, because honda paint is so soft its actually easy to remedy

Iíll get some photos up when I get out of work. Havenít clayed the car yet so clay might shift it if it is dirt. I suspect itís where the flaps were sitting and over time has been rubbing away at the paint. But youíre right about easy remedy!
