Suspension Question

I had my front right cv axle replaced on my 97 Prelude yesterday. This morning while driving to work I noticed a completely different ride. The car is bouncing all over the road and bottoming out on road bumps my car would normally handle pretty easily. The springs are original factory models and the car is almost undrivable now.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why my car would be riding this way now? Could they have forgotten to put something back on my car?

Thanks for the input guys.

Broken or incorrectly attached shock?

Re: Suspension Question

I agree with Jamie.

Take it back to where you got it done and make them fix it.

Re: Suspension Question

Struts were shot. Didn't feel the effects until the car was lifted and the struts were allowed to travel fully. When the car was put back on the ground they were done.

thanks guys
