So I just bought a 98 Type SH. It has like 140k miles
I've noticed there is huge noise coming from the rear right suspension area.
I thought it was a noise from the body, but apparently my mechanic says it's from bad strut.
It sounds like metal parts are clunking each other.
He offered me about 400 bucks to replace both.
I could do it by myself, however I don't know if the rear suspension on base models and SH models are the same. I see some base models parting out on Craigslist.
Also, my key lock is wayyy stiffer than other preludes. Also the key won't even work in trunk and passenger side door.
Is this a common issue with preludes? All my friends seem to have bad trunk key holes with their preludes.
Also, weirdest thing, the car has a clean title with no accident record. However, I've noticed the left front wheel is about 2cm left behind than the right side. I did an alignment by myself yesterday and now it seems to go straight, but it just bothers me. Doesn't it mean that my front subframe is bent?
Also, the right wheel sticks out of fender about 1cm. but the left side the wheel is located inside the fender. (Rims are little bit wider than stock)

Go to this link look at the rim!
I bought the car really cheap so I can't really ***** at it, but it does have some weird issues!
Help! Any opinions will be helpful! Thanks!
