89 4ws suspension part #s?

Hey all, been awhile since ive been on here. We had to cut internet out of our budget due tomy gfs work hours getting cut. Id use search but im doing this on my phone, so just browsing the web is a PITA.

Anyways tax return came in, and im re doing my suspension cause im sick of my car feeling like its going to fall apart every time I hit a pebble. I cant seem to find good sources for rear ball joints on a 89 4ws anywhere, honda quoted me 75 dollars PER JOINT just for the rear, if I can find em cheaper elsewhere I would like to.

Anyways, im looking for rear ball joints, as well as rear sway bar bushings, and a rear camber kit because when I replace my struts I may just get lowering springs or struts to drop it down about 1.5 inches, all for a 4ws. Oh and rear tie rod ends, not sure if any of this is interchangeable with the front.

Anyone know where I could find these?

I think the ball joints work for both front and rear because the makers of the lude were geniuses, an lazy

51220-SK7-013 009 002 JOINT, BALL (LOWER) (MUSASHI) 73.00 51.10 ----- 51 bucks sounds good to me lol.

Umm...no. The front and rear ball joints are not the same. Neither are the tie rod ends. It would make sense that they should be but for some reason they didn't design it that way.

That's bad advice...if lowering you should install the camber kit before the alignment. Of course you will want to lower it before the alignment, but you want the alignment shop to use the camber kit to adjust the camber.

Here are the part numbers you requested OP. But you would do yourself a favor by looking these up yourself so that you can make sure you are getting the parts you want. These are from www.hondapartsnow.com ...

Rear sway bar bushings
2 each 52315-SF1-010 BUSH, RR. STABILIZER (30MM)
4 each 52316-692-010 RUBBER A

Rear upper ball joints (may be discontinued)
1 each 52391-SF1-003 JOINT, R. RR. BALL (UPPER)
1 each 52401-SF1-003 JOINT, L. RR. BALL (UPPER)

There is some hardware also that you didn't mention, like washers and nuts that you might want to replace.

You're full of misinformation tonight aren't you?

Awesome man thanks a ton. Like I said its a PITA doing this on my phone, but ill look these up as soon as I sober up. My inner rear tie rods should be fine, something creaks really bad when turning at a stop but I think its my ball joints. I use honda p/s fluid only, so im sure its not the rack. Maybe tie rod ends. Either way this helps a ton so im much obliged.

Re: 89 4ws suspension part #s?

you're welcome, happy to help out.

I think you're right on top of what's causing the creaking. Probably a lower ball joint.

bad advice no way man, you'd waste money on the camber kit if you only drop it like an inch and realize you never needed it

Re: 89 4ws suspension part #s?

Yes, bad advice. You want him to pay for two alignments? Or are you saying he can adjust the camber himself? Most people aren't experienced enough to do that if it's what you're saying to do. He wants to go an inch and a half, so he will probably need a camber kit if he wants the camber to be in spec.

I may just do oem replacement shocks/struts. I drive 100 miles a day as part of my job so im just really wanting to get my ride quality back. Besides I think I may need to invest in a clutch cause I got in the car this morning and I swear the clutch felt like a piece of tissue could fully press the pedal down, so I think the pressure plate is on its way out...

And im losing coolant somewhere! Where does it all end...

just for an inch an a half your not going to need a camber kit....They can easily tell before even charging his ass for an alignment if it'll help or not. christ making him buy a worthless camber kit for him to figure out if he needs it or not is horrid advice

Hahaha, what is this a pissing contest? I never told him to buy a camber set. But what I was saying is that if he is gonna install one he should install it before the alignment. And since he said he's going with stock shocks it really doesn't matter for him anymore.

Im having my mechanic do it. I dont have the time and me and my girl have an 07 sonata to use in the meantime so its no big. Ill probably have him resurface the flywheel if he can, if not just replace it. Familys been going to him for years so I trust him, plus he did my timing belt and water pump.
