Is there a reason to replace bushings?

Postby thegregmitchell » Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:56 pm

I have a 91 crx DX that just reached 100,000 miles. The steering isn't super crisp and it's running all weather tires. Should I be looking into replacing bushings to help restore that "out of the box" steering response?

Inspect the bushings first. But I suspect original, 26+ year old bushings would be due for replacement by now regardless of mileage. Take a look at the ball joints too and check for leaks or play.

Worn inner tie rods can also help make the steering lazy.
