Did you install any spacers ? For +42 wheels they seems to poke out quite a bit :think:

I'm planning to get 7.5x17 +28 wheels but after seeing yours i'm afraid +28 will poke out way to much and have an undesirable look..

^ I’ve been looking for bulbs like that. Do they blink normally too? No hyperblink?
Yeah it works fine b/c I have this:

Its a boxy module, about the size of a photographic film case. It's located behind your steering wheel, more to say above the brake pedal. when you turn on your blinker you will see it lol. you change it out to the one that's designed for LEDs so it stops hyper flashing. you can even look for silent flashers, etc. It's called LED electronic flasher.

No, I have no spacers. Sometimes I feel like my rear wheels could space out a bit more tho haha.

Ok, in this pic below it's clearly visible, the front poke out more than the rear. Maybe a 5 or 10mm spacer in the rear should give you a better balance and look.

^ Yea I see what you mean. Also, the rear camber was set to -1 or -1.5 att, so that's even more tucked in lol. Too bad I'm not a big fan of spacers tho haha.

Found out that the power steering fluid was leaking from the power steering rack & power steering pressure supply line. Not sure why the rack was leaking but my guess is when I ended up going over the concrete lane dividing curb, when the car was involved in the collision in '16... The hose was messed up when I yanked it too hard, reaching my hand behind the engine for the spark plug cords...


New steering rack assembly & the PS fluid feed hose, replaced @ 185,8xx miles.

Had the wheel alignment & corner weight balancing, too. New Honda PS fluid made my wheel noticeably firmer and more stable on the road. The car handles like a champ once again! :driving:

Oof, that's a big one. But should never need replaced again.

That's what my wife said when I got the lip kit for the ATS haha.

That's right; One less thing to worry about. :boink:

Will be deep-cleaning underneath the chassis to further inspect any issues. OCD kicked in yo. :buffer:

I waited too long for this until this time of the yr haha. But It's ok, b/c I got a gift for myself already. :pedobear:
