Whats up every one, i own a honda civic sedan lx 95. And i think th shock
are no good. I noticed it because i recently drove a 2002 toyota Corlla and
the car was so smooth and comfrtable on the road. I feel evry crack in the
road alot with my civic. And i also feel that the car ha to much body roll
when im turning. Anyone has any suggestions on what suspension to get ?
Thanks alot , ill apreciate your help :)
i've got a suggestion, sell the P.O.S. u could probably get $2000 out of it if u find a dumb enough kid to sell it to.
First of all, you've got it all wrong, I happen to like my civic car.
Because of its reliability, gas mileage and its relativley comfortable. I'm
not looking to race the car, just to take me comfortably to the detination
i wish to go. On the other hand, if I wanted to race, or show off with a
car i would just take my dad's :) 03 SAAB, wich makes a lot of racing
wannabees wet their pants and turn left or right in the next turn signal
to escape the embarassment :) . By the way ? What good is it for me to
sell that P.O.S for $2000 ? Get another P.O.S for $ 2000. Or are you
willing to sponser me some money for a new car, That would be Great you
O but wait, you are right in one thing Chevy ! You do Suk Dong !
I still aprecate your Help ;)
i've got to say, saabs are nice cars... but i have a $1200 '79 280ZX. A
few months ago i tested it's 0-60 and it did it in a lil under 8.0 flat.
but, i think i messed it up a lil that time bcuz i tested it again and it
did 0-60 in about 6.2 last wednesday. now, i'm not sure how fast ur dad's
03 saab is bet i bet i could beat it with less than $500 more put into my
and that was kinda an answer to ur question about buyin a new POS. i got my car for $1200. u could buy a way better car than a civic for 2 grand. it might be just a few years older but if u have to fix the suspension anyways, then the years don't really matter. I'm not sure if that made much scense but i don't care lol
PS: i know the exact times bcuz i tested it with a g-tech. just thought i'd tell ya bcuz whenever i tell kids in my school about it they don't beleive me bcuz i have the exact times...
Well, you should realize- your car is NOT a 2002 Corolla... So no matter
what's up with your suspension, it'll NEVER feel like a Corolla- cos it
isn't one! Now, anyway, since your car is 8 years old, I'd say your
struts/shocks are worn out. Good reason to replace them with some good KYB
pieces, and put new springs on while you're at it.
test your shocks
press down on each corner as hard as you can, and release the pressure
if it bounces more than once, you might wanna think about replacing the shocks
not so sure 'bout replacing the springs, how many miles does it have?
