View Full Version : new rsx suspension help

10-28-2010, 09:32 AM
hey guys,

I just got this 04 rsx type s and lemme tell u i am a noob. I love automatics and after much persuasion and a good deal i got this rsx s. It was wrecked on the side and I got that fixed. It drives real good but has an alignment issue which ill take care of as soon as i can.

The problem is with the suspension. I don't know if its this car or all rsx's. it doesn't go too well over bumps and small potholes on the road(feeders). I need somebody to take a look and give me some advice.

Hope I haven't sounded stupid :) :facepalm:

the type S is a sports car, thus has a relatively stiff suspension so you feel bumps more than you would in a sedan or other passenger vehicle. take a few of the fly overs at 85 and you will see why its stiff, you wont have much body roll(sway).

this is not to say that there is not some thing wrong with yours im just say to keep in mind the intent of the vehicle.

yeah man they are fun little cars, i really miss mine. mine had a hardish ride for a stock car but compared to my civic or my old prelude it was smooth as butter, so i think you will just get used to it over time.
