Has anyone got this fixed with aftermarket springs???
It was the Skunk2's! Had Neuspeed Race springs put in yesterday and the noises are all gone! :clapping:I just had skunk 2 springs installed on my 08 4-dr Si and starting hearing this clunking noise immediately after. I took my car back and had the installation tech look at it and it was determined that the aftermarket front springs aren't 'flat' at the top and botom like the stock springs, therefore it's not seating as expected and creating a sort of roll with the springs.
The tech said that he had seen this before and they had replaced the skunk2's with Sprint Springs...and the noise stopped. I didn't see alot of good or bad feedback on the Sprint Springs so I opted to have them order Neuspeed Race springs instead of Sprint. They ordered the springs and I should have them installed by end of week. I'm hoping the noise stops...but after reading this thread, i'm concerned reaplacing the springs isn't the fix.
Call American Honda and make a complaint!Has anyone tried to get this fixed thru the dealership once the car is out of warranty? I purchased my Si in January and it was already out of warranty.
I called the local dealer and they're familiar with the problem but said the bulletin is only for their technicians and not a recall so I will be likely charged for labor. It seems to me that given the large number of vehicles affected that there should be a recall or a free of charge fix.
Anyone know of where I should direct my letter to Honda as I'd like to voice my displeasure?
