lower ball joint is what I'd call that in the radius arm, not sure if they can be replaced by themselves or if the arm with the ball joint is one piece

yea I was driving 65mph in the middle of I65 in birmingham when it decided to break.was not a fun ride but lucky me noone was hurt,but my poor car I hit the guard rail so my front pass side fender got trashed.I will probably never find another one.

On our cars the radius arm and ball joint are one piece units. acutall fairly easy to replace. I would recommend getting both left and right ones as the other side is probably going out soon. That axle s/b replaced also, It won't work the same if reconnected. :geek:

yea I have notice the last month or so that when ever I would take any curves at a decent speed only when it was a right hand curve that I was getting a vibration.any chance this was the cause?I checked or at least claimed I checked my suspension.guess I overlooked a major issue.and as for the other shaft what part would I ask for?sorry this is my first time getting into suspension work.

I can find you all the fender stuff. What color? :ugeek: And ask NAPA for a NEW passenger side axle. The remanned ones have the diameter of the axle shaft that goes into the differential shaved down to eliminate the wear groove from the seal. It will leak when installed. A new one doesn't have that and should fit the differential seal well enough to not leak trans fluid. :ugeek:

sry for the very late reply.but as for the fender stuff I will take a pic.and post it.and It so you got an idea of what I need.and as for the driveshaft.when I bought this car it had a b18 engine in it.with an A1 tans.which is the same thing inside and out as a S1 trans.which I am told is the most common.so the A1 is out of a 91 teg.
here is the specs on the shaft for a 89 as listed by napa
CV Driveshaft Compressed Length : 23 1/8"
Includes ABS Inner Sensor Ring : No
Inner Joint Spline Count : 27
Outer Joint Spline Count : 26
here are the specs from the 91
CV Driveshaft Compressed Length : 23 3/8"
Includes ABS Inner Sensor Ring : Yes
Inner Joint Spline Count : 27
Outer Joint Spline Count : 26
ABS Ring Teeth Count : 50
Inboard Joint Type : Male
Inboard Spline Count : 27

my car doesn't have any abs sensors anywhere around from where I looked.which if I am correct would be right behind the wheel.so I am thinking the one for the 89 to be right anyone have any input here.

Try Danny Carlson on Facebooks Vintage Integra page. He has the lights I believe.

Exactly what happened in that first picture with the driver's side front tire? Usually the ball joint on the other end of the threaded part pulls out of its socket. The extra weight on the front of the car from braking or taking a hard turn or going over a pothole will be the final end of it.

I guess you put it back in place for the picture.

Energy suspension or Wytbushings come to mind... Searching for either should yield good results, but Wytbushings will be harder to find.

Have all those lights and a fender colored blue in great shape. Also have the front bumper but shipping the bumper is cost$$$. Fender and lights no problem.
