I recently replaced my lowered suspension front and rear with the stock suspension on my 1992 Honda Prelud Si. I replace all four struts along with the springs and got ride of the adjustable camber kits that were on the car for the lowered suspension. I replace the struts/springs and the upper control arm bushings on the control arm back to stock (2 bushings per wheel). These parts are used, but struts and springs look to be in good order and the two upper control arm bushings per wheel are not adjustable like the camber kits were. I then took the car for a test drive and the rear of the car seems to be sliding out from under me as if the tires were bald or I was on ice. I do not know if bad struts/springs, upper control arm bushings are bad or possibly there is aproblem with camber and or toe. I did notice that the drivers side right rear tire is tilted in at the front of the tire, making me think that possibly it is the toe. That is why I went back to stock suspension because of this problem, but it still is not resolved. Is the stock suspension on the 1992 Honda Prelude Si adjustable for toe or camber for that matter? Would it be a bent suspension, lower toe arm/control arm/swing joint? Is it best to take it to an alignment shop and see what they say or is it possible to fix myself or make an adjustment myself? I still do have the donor car I pulled the struts/springs and upper control arm bushings from if I need to change out anything else. Any information would be helpful.

Hi sgi76,

The toe is adjustable but camber is not. It would be best to get an alignment check to see what is out and then proceed with rectification.

Your problem seems to be toe out of adjustment.
