YOUR MECHANIC IS RIGHT. THE BUSHINGS MAY NEED TO BE CHANGED. ALSO CHECK TO SEE IF THE GREASE FITTINGS ARE GOOD. SERVICING YOUR SUSPENSION CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

FRONT END SUSPENSION Squeak


It is hard to tell with out more detail as to what makes it squeak. Does it squeak when you hit a bump, or while the vehicle is in motion? To test your struts simply push down on each front corner (above or next to headlight)as to rock the vehicle up and down. Pick a solid part as to not dent it. This is a good way to test your struts. If it goes up in a stiff motion(not rocking) its probably good. If it goes up and down easily and has a lot of play then your struts might need changes. The squeak could also be sway bar bushings as well. If it only squeaks when your in motion it could be your cv axle. If you are still in need please post more detail as to better diagnose the issue.

Okay, so I have a 1996 honda civic ex and since iv'e bought it the steering wheel would shake when I brake from going 40 mph and up. This happens everyday and not only does the steering wheel shake I...


If it only does it during braking, it's not an axle. Likely culprits are warped rotors or bad suspension bushings.

A warpped rotor will cause the brakes on that rotor to grab and release as the rotor goes around, causing a shake. This is often felt in the brake pedal as a pulsing as well.

Failed front suspesion bushings can cause this as well, esppecially on front wheel drive cars.. When you are accelerating, your wheels are pulling the control arms forward, but when you brake, the control arms are pushed backwards. So, depending on what bushings are worn out, your alignment can change pretty drastically going from accelerating to braking or vice-versa. This would also account for the moving/hitting sensation you described. To check this you need to jack up the front of the vehicle and check the control arm bushings, as well as any other bushings for links/parts connected to the control arm.

How to change upper control arm on 1996 Honda Civic DX ?


UPPER CONTROL ARM:

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the front wheels. Support the lower control arm assembly with a floor jack.
  3. Separate the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle using a ball joint separator tool.
  4. Remove the self-locking nuts from the upper arm anchor bolts. Remove the upper arm from the vehicle.

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
To install:
Use new self-locking nuts when installing the upper arm and strut.
  1. Install the upper control arm assembly into the strut tower.
  2. Connect the upper ball joint.
  3. Install the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
  4. With all four of the vehicle's wheels on the ground, torque the upper control arm nuts to 47 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Torque the castle nut to 32 ft. lbs. (44 Nm); then, only tighten it enough to install a new cotter pin.
  5. Tighten the wheel nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm).
  6. Check and adjust the vehicle's front end alignment.
The bushings on the front lower control arms are replaceable on most models.
This procedure requires the use of a press and may be above the skill range of the average driveway enthusiast. It is recommended that this procedure be done by a qualified machine shop if you are not skilled in the proper use of a press.
  1. Remove the lower control arm that is in need of new bushings.
It is recommended that both the left and right lower control arm bushings be replaced at the same time. The vehicles handling may become unstable if there are new bushings on one side of the car and worn ones on the other.
  1. Set up the control arm in a press.
  2. Using a impact socket of the correct length and size, press out the old bushing.
  3. Install the new bushing by slowly using the press to push it into the control arm.
  4. WARNINGExcessive force could cause the bushing to bend or tear so be careful.
  5. Once the bushing is properly seated in the control arm, remove the arm from the press and install it on the vehicle.

Excessive Vibration in right side suspension


I'd have a look at the shock absorbers (might be called dampers, depending on what part of the world you live in) for this sort of symptom.

Suspension and steerin wheel


It is difficult to just assess wut is causing the suspension knock. U will have to go under the vehicle or let someone who is experience about this do it. Go under the vehicle and check the entire suspension system, steering ends, rack ends, ball joionts, rubber bushings etc. Well u said u have changed ur shocks but no difference. As for the squeaks, this might be coiming from the universal joint from the steering column. Like I said they really have to be inspected.

95 honda civic timing belt replacement process


If you have never changed a cambelt (timing belt) then it is not recommended that you attempt it. It is a job for a mechanic, as getting the cam timing wrong on reassembly is easy to do and can have disastrous consequences. It is easy enough once you know how, and if you are reasonably mechanically able, I'd suggest getting a repair manual for your vehicle that has a step by step procedure for timing belt replacement. Companies like Haynes produce very good repair manuals.

Could be worn bushings in the control arms - take a look at the bushings on that part of the suspension and see if any are cracked or leaking. Could also be worn bushings in the swaybar or swaybar end links.
