  1. Test Driving Session

    After reassembling everything, adjusted the tyre pressure before going out for the test driving session.


    The weather forecast was kind of a mixture of everything over the next few days and it would be warm for 2 days but getting cooler over the weekend.


    With this in mind, set the tyre pressure to OEM setup of 40/33psi for the Rear/Front and would like the owner to adjust it to his preference depending on the driving/weather conditions.

  3. Drive shaft 06

    Although I kept trying to push out the RR alignment bolt until the end of today, I came to a conclusion that I won’t be able to achieve it with cost effective and safe method.


    Also, agreed with the owner that I won’t even try to pull the lower ball joint out based on the risk management.


    After long hours and all the efforts, it is very disappointing and also frustrating because Right side drive shaft inboard joint is the one already leaking ...

    While waiting for the penetrating oil to work into the seized camber bolt at the right side, worked on the Left drive shaft.


    Initially, the spline at the outboard joint into the hub/knuckle was seized but managed to move it earlier this week using the hydraulic puller.

  5. How to tackle the seized alignment bolt… Drive shaft 04

    by , 19-02-2011 at 01:16 PM (Today at Atelier Kaz - Private NSX Enthusiast, ex-Honda R&D engineer with F1, Indy/CART background)

    Not only on NSX but also on other Honda models, the suspension bolt passing through the bush with metal collar could seize.



    This is caused by the corrosion/oxidation probably from the moisture/salt in the air.


    It would be best, once a year, before visiting the alignment place, if you can remove majority of the suspension bolts/nuts and apply silicone grease on the bolt body.


    But not practical for some of the owners without ...
