I'm just wondering if I am the only one who has been experiencing this. I have changed axles already 2x in one year and I'm starting to hear the cracking when I turn AGAIN :mad I've heard that the H22 is notorious for ripping apart axles when in hatchs or any other civics but should it be doing it like this in the prelude. I'm really getting sick of my axle making noises every couple of months. I've heard something about some 400hp capable axles and I'm seriously thinking about getting them

What the hell are you doing to your car to be going through axles that quickly? WOT launching on slicks? :rolleyes Are you sure you're installing them right? What brand are you getting?

If you want Driveshaftshop.com sells some good axles.

What do you mean, cracking noise? Do you also feel it in the steering wheel?
When you turn both ways?

since you have problems, use Autozone ones that have a lifetime guarantee.

There is no point in gettin new axles from Autozone because you have to keep getting new ones. because there nothing but cheap used ones. :bash

Ive only had a problem with the boot tearing. I think its due to the fact the the car is lowered and the boot rubs against itself. But no mechanical problems. :eek:

I bought my prelude with 130K on it, owned it for 55K miles (to 185K), ran nitrous on it often, put it through hell on numerous occasions with rough launches and off-the-line nitrous shots...


and never changed or fucked up the axles.
