ok im guesing this is the tsb #
09-028

edited first post also.

the bolts are on the steering gearbox its connected to the rack and pinon so
i would look there first lol. much easier with a lift. My friend works at honda
so he told me about it. He said that one bolt was just spinning like it was stripped.

Good luck guys. :thumb:

Corrective action is to "loosen" then retorque all 6 of the steering gearbox mounting bolts in 2 steps . Easier with a lift .

Ive had this problem on my 07 since I purchased it. Have complained many times but of course cant duplicate. It sounds terrible and everyone who rides with me freaks out when they hear the loud CLUNK from the front on turns. It stops after a little driving though.

happens to me as well.

i am lowered, but it's been happening even before i was.

i wonder if they'll still do the work even though i'm out of warranty. anyone know?
