Oh wow.. I forgot to update. Yea.. it was the sway bar. Though now my rear suspension is clunking, almost 48000 miles, so I'm just going to replace them if the dealer inspection proves that they are going.

Edit..

I lied.. I'm at 45 000 Aprox and the rear feels like it's completely gone. At this time I'm uncertain if it's a bushing or the strut/shock but there is a metallic thunk or clunk when going up inclines or bumps at low speeds, sometimes when turning at low speeds and when cornering at high speeds. Oddly enough at this stage there is no noise during level driving and whilst going over uneven tarmac at speed. I'm assuming it will get worst over time and I'll be able to pinpoint exactly what it is.. However with my history with this car, helping people to move, taking multiple passengers etc I'm probably looking at new struts/shocks all around. Which honestly isn't too expensive.

Anyone who installed the pro kit have to modify the stock bump stops at all? I'm still waiting on my rear KYB shocks and the pro kit both of which are on back order.

ok sorry to bring this back from the dead, but i need to get my shopping list correct as im about to order. i got the part no. from eibach for my 2010 2.5 and im going to order the springs off ebay as they are about 60 dollars cheaper(still eibachds). so if i am thinking correctly i should go ahead and order the front and rear camber kits as well(these will come directly from eibach)?

From reading on it seems pretty useless to get the camber kit. Unless you start eating tires you'll be fine. I haven't read one review of someones tires wearing extremely fast. It also doesn't look like anybodys rears are angled in. On my Prelude I did tokiko blues with H&R Race springs and the rear was angled in pretty bad at the top because the mechanic I had said it was fine and didn't need the camber kit even though I had one and it did need it. It's kinda hard to see but you can see the top of the rear tire is angled in


I drove it like that almost 8 months before I sold it and the tires didn't wear bad
Everyone on here with a pro kit rear tire looks pretty straight up and down. On a side note that car had 4WS and handled like it was on rails. I kinda miss it.

alright that sounds like a solid plan zolemite, im ordering tonight. going to install them myself at my shop. i wonder if anyone has only put the front springs in and left the rear stock. just because the rear drop isnt that big.

I'm just waiting for my springs and rear KYB shocks to come in from Tire Rack and I'll have all new suspension installed. The springs are meant to work as a group. I wouldn't just put springs on the front only. The pro-kit's drop looks pretty even from all the pictures

For the amount of work it takes, seems very easy to put the rears in compared to the fronts so why not have proper springs on all 4? yeah they may not seem to make a difference but if you measure im willing to bet there would be a difference, plus the spring rates are different than the stock and would be stiffer. Im about to install all 4 on my car soon.

yes, i just finished installing the springs only. i figured my stockers will be good for awhile seeing as they only have 6k on them. the rear was way easier than the front, but the front wasnt a big deal either. the whole install took me around 30 minutes. gonna take it to the dealer to get the alignment checked as the machine at our shop is rather old and im dont feel like messing with it. heres a little before and after. i know shes dirty, but this pollen around here is horrible, i washed her last night lol
