Recently had a very harsh bumpy ride in my lowered 1.8 type s and a knocking noise coming from the front passengers side wheel. Been told by a non honda mechanic that both my front shockers are burst? and its my passenger side strut mount needing replaced. Anyone know how much front shocks and a strut mount will be and if there is better options out there than standard for the same price? My car was lowered on eibach springs.

Can't possibly be caused by the shocks - lots of folk have fitted Eibachs and nobody to date has reported their shocks being affected by them ...

ABP Motorsport - who fitted mine - have no issues with just changing springs (although I had the shocks changed out for Koni FSDs at the same time) ...

MIne is two years old and has had the front right strut replaced under warranty. Same problem. I don't modify cars under warranty so not idea how Honda will view this. My ride quality has improved significantly albeit it's still poor compared with say a Focus ST Or even RS for that matter.

Not an issue - the Eibachs are not covered by the Honda warranty, but everything else still is ...

If they tell you that the Eibachs caused the shocks to fail, ask them how they could possibly prove it, when so many people in her have Eibachs and no "side effects" ...

p.s. - get the 'drop-links' changed while you are at it, warranty or not ...
