yea guys, this is a big one here. i've actually had this happen to me, it was scary when you turn the wheel and nothing happens, lucky for me, it was nothing, then it would grab then again nothing. didn't even know what was going on, until later when it let go completely, luckily i was backing out of a parking spot when it happened. could have been on the highway trying to change lanes, which is where i would have been if i made it out of the parking spot

Not a smaller bolt. That would be suspect IMO, also. Same size bolt (10MM) only an inch longer. It threads into the collar like stock but sticks out the open end and you just twist on a nut. Collars threaded all the way through. This is stupid easy once you have one in your hand. Plenty of clearance for the extra length. And it's not got any extra force on it to worry about. There's so little lateral force on these u joints that Honda and other large makers use piddly hardware here.

Haha... in my defense the bolt I installed is a far higher grade than Acura provided. Hard to imagine anyone could improve on such an AWESOME design. I mean really... this thread started on that fact.

Makes sense to me from pure engineering sense... just because it`s not YOUR way doesn`t mean it`s not a better solution.

Sorry bro, wrong thread (forum?) to ask questions about laying pipe.

Default not that pipe

these are the pipes i'm speaking of:


like from the passenger side where they drop down and go into thefirst rubber (and no not that kind of rubber ) which pipe is at the top then down, the four pipes.

as soon as i get this done its on to change out one side of the axle and then off to do the brakes. long day ahead of me and i'm being held up by the order of these stupid pipes.

oh and P.S. Sr5guy looking forward to you getting the injector package together

found the pic I needed on hondapartsunlimited.com.

I recently replaced yet another rack on my 95. 1st was from Garo Steering here in FLL. POS! I let them do the install.. BIG mistake. They are horrible. It hasn't been right for 2 years. Last month I ordered another from Rack Doctor in SC.. AWESOME! I did the install myself and found this mentioned knuckle bolt stripped, a broken rack tie-down bolt and pinched lines.
It was a major pia getting that broken bolt out of the aluminum frame. ended up going all the way through, re-tapping the threads and using a longer #10 bolt!
I have always been a hand tools guy so there is no chance of stripping this bolt if you put it in with the fingers and tighten only once it threads in smoothly!
