HELP!! Suspension woes

I have a 2000 prelude SH and I have a suspension rattle when going over bumps in the back passenger of the car. Its a stock suspension right now and it seems like all the koni Yellows and other aftermarket shocks and struts i'm seeing are not for the SH model. What do you guys recommend to replace the stock stuff with on an SH model?

I'm new and this is my 1st non-newb post, so please take it easy on me.

Easy? Sorry, fresh outta lube.



j/k man lol


You're hearing a "rattle" and not a clunk or anything? Are you sure it's within the suspension? Check to make sure your spare tire is secured, and there is nothing beneath it rolling around. Also check that your jack is tight and not moving back and forth.


Then work your way down to the suspension - with the rear of the car on jack stands, try to move the wheel to check the wheel bearing. Then inspect all of your bushings and ball joints.


Typically shock issues cause a pop - not a rattle.

If you replace the shocks and the struts, anything for a Base will work on an SH
