Started fitting new rear LCA bushings. This should make the rear feel much more responsive at Autocross.

Here is the finished product. I still need to use the vice to properly seat the bushings into the new sleeves.

Nice work. How you removed the old one? Burn and cut casing?

When I was changing the LCA on Sat i noticed the left rear shock had oil leaking. A good buddy of mine Kern had 2 KYB AGX used at his place, after sweet talking him i cut a deal and now there are on the civic. Feels better than the worn out tokico. Here are some pics of the install.


Leaking strut:

Fitted to the rear. Settings are at 6 right now.

Here is a vid of the shock being scraped. This was the right side, it is still good as can shown by the compression and rebound.
