Noisy suspension on 97 Honda civic

Yes, you need a stiffer shock. Your probably bottoming out. You'll need the camber and alignment checked after you stiffen it. The ride will not be so pleasant so slow down for bumps.

1992 honda accord stutters when accelerates

Check the catalytic converter. If the carbon monoxide cant get out, it sometimes will act like this. It plugs up over time.

Has it ever been replaced??

I did mine about 2 months before I got rid of my Civic.

By the way, the exhaust system on most Hondas is the Welded, so you have to pull off the whole line from the back of the motor to the muffler.
