LMA change from honda

Does anyone know exactly why honda changed the design of the lma's from the cylinder to the springs? or was it just something they changed because there was a flaw in the design

Unlikely that anyone would know exactly why Honda changed the design. May be a cost factor involved (the spring ones are bound to be much cheaper to make). Unlikely that they had hydraulic LMA failures within the short time they used them. But without doubt the hydraulic ones do fail over time (mine failed/became sticky/made metal on metal sounds ~210k km's, now replaced with the NSX spring LMAs that are the same height as the H22A ones).

Re: LMA change from honda

My research at the time indicated that there was a height difference between the old and the new LMA design which required a spacer to make up for it (off memory it was a thread on Honda-tech). NSX spring LMA was the exact height of the hydraulic H22A one, hence I went for them.

Proof of height:



Haha quick google search and I found it:
