Thanks man!! This is definitely not the look that I will be keeping, but it will do until I am able to gather the funds together and do the overhaul of my dreams HAHA!! But thanks again for the kind words.

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

UPDATES UPDATES UPDATES!!!!!!!!

Just ordered some suspension parts for the Lude!!

Inner and outer tie rods, upper and lower ball joints (front and rear), 4 shocks.

Pretty excited about it seeing as how my car handles like poopoo lol.

Also wanting to buy the master bushing set and all 4 wheel bearings.
Only one problem. I do not own a press, so I have a few options. Buy a Harbor freight press or take it to a machine shop and have them press it in. I think I will come out about the same (money wise) by doing either????

Anyone have any hands on experience with changing bearings and bushings?

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

I'd recommend buy harbor freight press to use it then return it to save your money. Machine stop charge anywhere $30+up EACH. Thats what I did two wheel bearings for my front. What kind of upper ball joints do you have? I just replaced inner/outer tie rods and upper ball joints just recently.

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

ok thats kinda what I was thinking, seeing as how the HF presses are fairly inexpensive (and I might be able to make a few bucks off it??) and as for the parts, well...... they are all off eBay, so I am unsure of the brand but they should be fine.

I mean what kind of upper ball joints? Because there are two different kind. one is oem ball joint look like and one is that have nut on the top to tight it up. What I have is the ball joints that have nuts on it which I made a mistake to install it because they are to big and hurt my tires due my lude is to low. I am about to order oem ball joints to replace the current ball joints.


Go look at the prelude power.com and theres a guy selling the upper control arms with ball joints with nuts on top for $70 shipped. He is selling it is because his lude is to low and the ball joint is to big and hitting the tires. I thought to let you know.

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

They aren't oem one because the one you get from ebay is aftermarket, lol.

Heres the link to the oem ball joints look like.

2 FRONT Upper Ball Joint For HONDA PRELUDE 92-96 | eBay



Heres the link to the ball joints with the nuts on top.

2 FRONT UPPER BALL JOINTS ACURA CL TL HONDA ACCORD ODYSSEY PRELUDE ISUZU OASIS | eBay




If you get the ball joints with nuts on top, message them to stop the shipping and refund your $ back if it hasn't ship yet. If it already ship, then guess you gotta have to wait to get it then return it.

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

Just ordered a Master Energy Suspension kit (the black graphite kit because they are self lubricating)

Now all I need are wheel bearings and axles (along with misc. other things like loctite anti seize and paint) and I'll be set to have a fun weekend.

Really thinking about getting their (Energy Suspension) motor inserts, or just holding out for some innovative mounts????? Any input?

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

Got my master energy suspension kit in today, still waiting on axles and seals.

Also on another note received a JDM RHD center console that I will probably do tonight.

Still contemplating about the wheel bearings...... mine seem fine I was just wanting to do it all at once and not have to worry about it. Will try to post pics up and plan to do a write up on everything.

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

My advice, replace everything (include wheel bearings) as much as you can because the more new parts installed will lead old parts go bad.

yea, good call. I will purchase them now, but it'll be a while before they are installed. If I get everything by this weekend there will be a major update on my threads.

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

Ok, waiting for the pics. Rear HUBS are easy to take off, but alot of work if the thing inside the hub got stuck on the rear stub shaft is because old dry grease that make it very stuck. To take it off the rear stub shaft is small/handheld metal grinder.

As for front, I am unsure because you know I went 5 lugging meaning I just switch the spindles/knuckles, but pics will help, tho.

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

So, if you're fallowing my build progress you probably know that I am doing my entire suspension..... well I got all the parts and started pulling everything off. Good, right? WRONG!!!!

I started on the passengers side and everything went pretty smooth. GREAT!!!

Got to the driver side and started taking stuff off and what do I see? A broken Junk2 coil looking at me........ yep, that's right. My spring snapped in half.... I WILL NEVER OWN ANYTHING JUNK2 AGAIN!!!!!! <-- all caps so you know I'm serious lol. Well ****!!!! what do I do now? I spent all of my money replacing the bushings, shocks, rotors, pads, tools, ball joints, axles, seals etc...... So now instead of the lude being down for a couple of days, it will be at least a week..... I can't afford to get coilovers, or time to wait for some junkass springs of eGay that will just break again (I mean if "name brand" springs will break, right?)

Stuck between a rock and a hard place guys...... feeling really down....... upset at the fact that I thought I was taking a giant step forward only to come to the realization that it is in fact the exact opposite. I don't really know what to do....

A friend of mine has some stock civic springs (??96 I think??) that I will probably put on, but that will just take me back to 4x4 status. I guess I shouldn't bitch too much because at least I will be able to drive.

On another (better) note, my friend's dad, I just found out today, owns a press!!! So I will be able to save a lot of time and effort with all of the bushings.

Sorry, I just needed to rant and get this off my chest. My wife does not understand the frustration that I'm going through and she thinks I'm being a dick to her for no reason. I try to remain calm and tell myself, "it's just a car dude".

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

still in the process of rebuilding and painting everything. Is going to take WAYYYYYYY longer than expected lol. But I was able to barrow an Expedition as a daily so now I can take my time with everything. Trying to save up now for some coilovers since I found out my junk2 springs broke......

Re: :::Brodie94::: 1994 S

ok, so some of you may know that I am in a pickle...... My junk2 springs broke on me so now I am in need of some new springs...... well, I'm definitely not going with skunk2 anything anymore and eBay springs are out of the question.

Here are my options.
1) Tein coilovers USED on CL for somewhere around $500
2) Brand new Megan EZ (cheapest I've found is around $680)
3) F&F type 1's for $625

Input will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys/gals
