    hey guys, i just put a new B18a in my 1990 CRX, the car is lowered and has 195/50/15 Proxxie T1-S's, i thought the engine would hamper my handling a little do to extra weight, but ever since, if i take a corner with any force, it sounds like either #1 the tire is hitting inside of fender , car is really low and on big bumps i know it hits fender, but on flat corners it makes the sound, so i doubt its that, or #2 the front of the is slightly bouncing around the corner, which makes no sense b/c its lowered and has good tires? any thoughts would be greatly appreaciated

    Thanks

    How is it lowered and what shocks are you running?

    sounds like an axel problem. what axles are you using?

    u said it feels like the front is bouncing around turns...that points to a worn shock or shocks. what kind of shocks do u have? if they are stock...they are probably worn because stock shocks arent designed to take the punishment from a lowered suspension. although aftermarket shocks wear down too after time.

    other possibilities:...did you cut your springs??? if you did...thats your WHOLE problem. if not, then maybe you need springs with a higher spring rate. or maybe you just need to roll the fenders.

    I have lowering springs only, not shocks. The are cheap and were on the car when i bought it. also i am using the tex axels, and they are brand new, so i know that isnt my problem. ill try getting new shocks, but i still think its hitting the inside of fender. which wouldnt account for the worn shocks, b/c they barely move as is.
