Hey op. Do you have the revised up control arms? They should have a letter or number stamped on them (can't remember now)
The bad ones caused to much camber and maybe in your case cased to much stress on the trailing arm because the forces were not being distributed evenly or to all the right places

Same thing happened to me!!! Got a call from my girlfriend saying her 2009 Honda Civic wheel was coming off. I thought she had a flat but sure enough; looks like the same thing happened (Lower control arm broke). Was there a recall on this? She was on the highway when it happened and almost lost control, doesn't seem like these should just snap off.

WOW, have there been any more occurrences like this or any info back from Honda? I'm surprised nobody has responded to the previous post!
