    i have a 93 integra da and there is some problem with the rear of the car. when i go over bumps the car shifts in the back (right to left) and when people are behind me it looks like the car is kinda goin sideways a little and is not straight at all. i have looked at the control arms and stuff after takin the tires off and i cant see what is wrong. nothin looks bent or anything.
    anyone know what could be goin on?

    ok so the problem is all fixed now, i changed all the control arms at once, upper, lower, trailing arms. i dont know which one actually fixed it but my car drives perfectly straight now and doesn't move to the side when i hit bumps :)

    I have a 93 Integra with a dohc vtec when i revit up or driving and put it in gear and go at a low rpm and floor it while stiil low rpm it makes a loud ticking or knocking sound especially when i use reg unleaded gas. But when i use super unleaded gas you can barley hear it but its still there. So I inspected under the car only found a plug that wasn't pleged in and tryed to find a plug for it but couldn't find any around. What is this plug? it's located under the altinatior on the block behind the bottom pully. Can this be the problem?
