Question about 1994 Honda Civic

Front wheel lenght 2 inches more than rear wheel lenght.Normal?

I am having problem with my Honda Civic SR4 1994 yr. When i went to tyre workshop for alignment, the tech found out that my front wheel lenght and rear wheel lenght is different (wheel lenght is the distance between inner wall of tyres) , front is 2 inches more... is this normal? will it affect the alignment of 4 wheels? if the tyre man clamp the alignment CCd sensors arm on directly , can he obtains a correct adjustment if he ignore the front wheel is actually extruded out 1 inch at both side??

It should not be a problem as long as he aligns the tires in a four wheel alinement it will be fine, on trucks some axles stick out more on one side than they do the other so don't worry about it, if he's any good he can still align them it's just more work for him.

I have honda civic 1995 can anyine tell me that 15 inch rim would be suitable for the car as my country has not good roads.would 15 inch rims would damage suspension or not?


talk with a tyre dealer on this one as there are road regulations that you will have to comply with. 15 " wheels will fit your car but you will have to select a lower profile tyre to comply with regulations so you would be achieving any thing as to clearance. Discuss the matter with an "off road" shop as to suitable suspension modifications to get what you want

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.

My 1994 civic dx has an ex gage cluster and the speedometer is off by 10-15 mph how would I correct this and keep the gage cluster it says my tire size should be 175 70r13 but I have 185 60r14 which is the...


okay,lets go to basics...1/.175 is the width of the tyre.2/.70 is the profile(that is 70mm from the wheel rim to the road).3/.13 is the width of the wheel rim.
So,you have 185(wider tread)60 (lower profile)14"(bigger wheels).you need to fit 35 profile tyres to get close to the same rolling radius to correct the speedo,the ride will be harder and the tyres are much more expensive,alternatively fit 13" wheels/tyres.
70/13 radius is the same circumferance as 45/14(25mm thinner).
simply put,if you measure the original wheel, road to top of tyre,then measure the ones fitted you are an inch to tall or 3.1/2" more around (approximately)please leave feedback...ta
geoff.

Your problem is not uncommon. If excessive rust and corrosion build up between the wheel and the hub they become stuck together. Use a hammer and hit the wheel, moving around the entire edge until it loosens.

Front bumper


To remove the bumper on a honda civic;

1. open your hood and unscrew 3 screws ( some have plastic catchers).
2. there is another bolt above your front tyre, you have to unbolt that..(right above the tire, by your mudguard or whatever they call that plastic piece to stop mud or water to get in contact with wires on the door.)
3. same on the other size...
4. you are good to go then...good luck..
