My thoughts about the Civic is that some very good seats ease the rather harsh ride.
So, after about half a century in service, my spine is still fine

Noticed I can pass the speed bumps faster than before -
and that is not shocking WC, that's fun

Had - finally - both front absorbers replaced yesterday under warranty.
Now the ride is silent and slightly better

|Guitaralmond||the suspension creaking is quite a problem!! although bump stops from your dealer (at no cost!!) should cure your problem fine, just be sure of which corner (or corners) its coming from...|

|Wazza350||Got ya! Looks like the dampers seem to stiffen up. I'd say that. Have to do some research on what make to go for, and where to get them from. I'm worried about making it stiffer, but want it smoother!|

|J_H||A knocking noise is never a good sign, but there is a history and a lot of threads on the site that relate to that. It is a firm ride though, but I like it (resisted the urge to say I like it rough!). Means you can feel what the car is doing.|

Are the Civic shock absorbers bad?
I don't know much about shocks but I know a little.
Are the shocks on the civic bad? Dealer says they could be the cause of knocking sound so wondered about replacing them. I get like others quite a lot of road vibration/noise too, which also could be the tyres, and it is quite a bumpy and jiggly ride.
I'd like a smooth/softer ride but obviously not to affect the handling, and wondered if anyone has replaced them with others and what the results are.
