Go tighten everything, drive around and see what happens.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by bronx99:
it's not squeaks.. it's sounds like loose bolts.. and you can only hear it during 5-30mph on bumpy roads. It's like a set of bolts are rattling against eachother..
chris, can you check to see if energy suspension has replacement bushings for this?? if not, any other aftermarket companies??<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by NVR2FST:
THIS IS WHAT I'VE been figuring out for a loong time!
The slight clunks are from the spring/perch lifting off of the c-clip.
The shock knock is coming from your upper damper bushings! The factory bushings are either insufficient or the Koni collar is too long!
I just replaced my bushings (w/ Honda bushings)on the weekend and the noise has gone away. but i do at times here the perch/spring hopping on the c-clip on larger/shaper speed bumps, BUT the rattling/shockknock went away. I know what you are talking about, it's not the speedbump clunking that was bothering me; it was the clunking/rattling noise that was occuring during driving slooooooow on smooth uneven pavement.
Trust me, adding spacers to the bushings (shockknockfix) is only temporary (3days).
As for now, the problem has not persisted ever since i replaced the bushings on Saturday.
Comparing the old and new Honda bushings, the older bushings were definitely worn and thinner, compared to the new Honda bushing. The best it probably to change to aftermarket bushings. I FEAR that the new Honda bushings that i put on might wear out again in a year or sooner; we will have to wait and see.
