Ive been trying to sort out the reason for my steering wheel shake, been going on for a couple months now.

I tried to think of all the issues like steering rack, tie rod ends, and wheel balancing, and they are all fine. So i gave up, took it to Honda for a free diagnosis, and they came back with worn CV joints.

Took me by suprise as i thought id hear clicking etc. But the car has gone through many cv boots, so theres a good chance of grit getting in there and messing them up.

I now need to see if my 91 has any better driveshafts to swap, or i gotta by some new

well no spanners were used, i had 2 sockets, for the damper fork bolt, and same socket for the lower ball joint. A monster 36mm socket for the driveshaft nut and a ratchet and breaker bar to power the sockets, and job done.

Yes, they are adjustable, i have learnt that you USDM people dont get that, so it must be a EDM thing. They go from max tilt in that picture, to straight.

The future is big, but as you can see progress is slow and steady, this is down to money, as we all know tuning gets a little tough without it!

My main lists to do is get a few maintanance issues sorting out that are sub optimal.

Mainly fuel tank replacement, tie rod ends, and a couple of bushes, also to sort out some carpark dents that annoy me.

Upgrades wise i want 200bhp. That can come in the form of a F build or a H swap, im not fussed which route i go down, but right now for me the H swap is the cheaper option.

I want at some point a full respray in the same colour (B59-p Buckingham Pearl Blue) as well.

Well driveshafts have been fully rebuilt, every bit out, cleaned in petrol, and new grease put in and new boots on. Guess what, NO WHEEL SHAKE!!! problem solved!, lets hope this set of boots last longer than 6months.


Heres a bad news, distributor has decided to call it a day! so no start for this old Honda. Got a new one on order from USDM land.

A nice little find here pictures below:





Thats all really because ive been working on, and driving around in the other Accord

Fixed up so little things yesturday, sorted out the front right speaker, failed on me, was just a wire connection issue, got my HIDs back in.

So, not driving the Accord for a couple of weeks and letting it chillout in the garage is not good! Wanted to give it a drive, and a run couldnt move it initially the brake pedal felt odd, anyway after working it out, it seems the soft brake lines have collapsed inside, providing a sort of one way valve for the fluid. Hit the brakes and then the brakes slowly release over a period of 5secs!

Clearly undrivable really, so on the hunt for some new ones, prefer to get some braided lines, Hels do them for the Accord but a set is like 100 ($150), seems a bit rich to me i dunno

very good tommi lol, i know im tight, and it made me think, dont scimp on brakes, ive got good pads discs and fluid, and the front calipers are in good form.

So yeah think im going to order them this week, and at the same time, take off the rear calipers and give them a good service, and some new fluid again.
