My car is about to undergo a lot of suspension changes, but one thing I won't be addressing is the horrific bump steer this car seems to have. I drive to work on an old worn out road and my shocks are blown and I have no power steering, all the bouncing moves the steering wheel all over the place. It might be a little overblown, but I expect it to get worse when the car is lowered, like most other Hondas. I want to find a way to fix this.
This might sound crazy, but I think with 92-00 Civic / 94-01 Integra inner tie rods we have a lot more tie rod end options. Our stock tie rods on both ends are M12x1.25 and I think most other cars are an M14 thread. I am trying to double check this, but I think 92-00 Civic / 94-01 Integra inner tie rods are M12x1.25 inner and M14 outer. I have no idea what the lengths are though, I might have to make a Rockauto order of cheap rack parts. The other car's racks are narrower by about 8" or something, the inner tie rods look a little shorter, and the outer tie rods are a lot longer.
There is something else that really piques my interest here. If anything, I think putting these tie rods on our racks might make them a little too wide. The tie rod ends can be cut down if the threads are deep enough and that will get them a few more threads narrower, any more and the Ackerman angle will probably have to be changed on the knuckles, or much shorter rod ends can be used from an S2000 or EP3. I did hear on this forum somewhere that a 3rd gen Civic manual steering rack might fit these cars. They have the same mount, same threads, but they are a tad narrower, like 2" if my information is correct. They are probably a little hard to find, but Rockauto does still sell them, and they will probably leak less than our power racks from the same refurbishers.
All that out of the way, I think pillowball bushing tie rod ends that flip the side of the knuckle they sit on would fix the bump steer, or put it back in the normal range of toe change. If anybody has some misc parts laying around, some measurements will be a big help. As a side note, I am going to check up on the fitment of 92-00 Civic / 94-01 Integra lower ball joints too. They mount inversely iirc, but they will be able to correct the roll center on coilover setups.
