i need to redo EVERY component of my rsx suspension soon my car rides like a walmart shopping cart

i feel you on that.

this truck rides a lot better with the correct shocks and everything rebuilt.... but its still old and lowered...

it would be nice to have a newer hot rod truck like a newer chevy or hemi truck

Replaced the front shocks

They were getting weak and also not the right length for lowered 2"

They were partially compressed just sitting normally.

These other ones seem a lot better I'll drive it over some bumps that makes it rub soon enough

I think the weld blew out both spots at the same time. I just didn't see it cause it was up against the blovk and I never took it off the first time

Exhaust leaks suck

Yeah apparently the expensive vabnds are good but they are like almost 100 each I think

It wasn't the vband tho the weld blew out a small hole again lol

Fixed it again.... Had to remove manifold.

Weld blew out a little on side facing the block

The other manifold stud in the center broke off in the head... Lol I should've removed it when I had the chance instead of reusing it.... Lol

I put some exhaust gasket maker around a stock manifold gasket and it's holding lol

I also warped the shit out of the vband flange welding it like a mfer

I put some gasket making on the vband male/female surface


No leaks! But for how long.

ive always have bad luck with vbands, but i once got some straight thru holset, same once that came from the factory of an hx35w elbow and those were damn robust maybe that bit of info can help out, diesel shops might stock those. ebay ones are a class junk usually
