    Hey All, I’m in going to get eibach pro kit springs for my Fn2 type r. I want to install the springs myself and feel like I’ll be able too no problem. I’ve never worked on cars much so eager to do as much as I possible can. What trips me up is when it comes to camber, toe, alignment etc...

    Hi Everyone, Iv got a set of AP coilovers on the way, but when looking into it it doesnt seem like they come with strut mounts for the front? My question is: if i took the strut mounts off the stock suspension, would it then work with the AP kit? (and by extension is this a good idea, even if...

    Hello there from Mauritius, my civic has developed some 'spinning' wheel noise at low speed (noise stops after driving at high speed on the highway) on the drivers side and after a servicing at the dealership they have said that I need to have the shocks changed. Due to the covid outbreak I...

    Hi All Hoping someone can help. I think it started a couple of months back, I drove onto a grass verge and my car hit a large rock hidden in the grass. Ever since that incident, when driving slow (up to 30mph) especially over a bumpy road the suspension makes this 'knocking' noise. When...

    Are the bushes on the front inner arms easier to replace and also the inner front bottom arm bushes do they just drop out and new ones straight in??

    Discovered something frightening that I thought I would share! Only had my FN for a couple of months and worried about the Bump stops, as I was getting some fun knocking and a really hard ride! Just by chance, I checked the tyre pressures again when cold (I had checked when warm and I first...

    Hello, I've got a FK3 for 2 months now and I've noticed that the car wobbles when the road is not perfect. The wheels have been checked and balanced and all new tires. The inner and outer steering rod has no play, so that seems good. I've recently changed the bump stops they had fallen out. I...

    Got my type R FN2 back in January. Really enjoying the car but recently noticed a slight wobble in the ride over speed bumps etc. The front left shock was replaced when I got the car but it was obviously not done as a pair. The right shock has now leaked and is much less firm when pressing down...

    I bought my Civic Tourer 1.6 diesel in May this year. So far I have driven 16000km and in general I like my car but... I travel a lot through Germany and at higher speed (over 140km/h) quite often car becomes unstable. In curves or with a side wind it leans to the side, irresponsive steering...
