    Default problem with civic's front suspension

    i have a problem with my civic's front suspension.
    Whenever it is driven on small stones, it makes "tak tak" sound which is also felt on the steering.
    Is it ball-joint or some other broken bush causing it?

    It does not happen when the car is fully loaded.

    well ,if this Tak Tak sound comes while turning also,it is due to the part called "Goda" by our desi mechanics.in dat case u have 2 replace it.

    it sounds like the steering rack problem..
    If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a closed room with a mosquito!

    From Consumer Report

    Trouble Spots
    Climate control: The adjuster tabs for the center vents in the dash break off. (2001)
    Engine noise: Engine noise due to timing belt tensioner wear on 1.7L engine allows belt to rub cover and an updated tensioner is now available. (2001-02)
    Seat: The rear seatback lock may not turn or is hard to turn, requiring lock rod replacement. (2001-02)
    Steering problems: The steering wheel may be hard to turn or make noise due to a faulty power-steering pump. (2001)
    Suspension noise: Front coil springs clash, causing a popping, or knocking noise. (2001)
    Transmission slippage: The shift cable corrodes at the end near the transmission, making it difficult to shift and/or causing it to pop out of second or fifth gear. (2001)
    Water leak: Water may leak into the trunk because there was insufficient seam sealer applied to the fenders at the factory. (2001)

    This is for North American Honda, but this might help you.
    1996-2000 Honda came with Double Wishbone Suspension. After that to cut costs, honda changed the suspension to space-efficient front MacPherson strut suspension. A lot of people here are having trouble with the noisy suspension in their civic.

    3 Things you need to get checked.

    1 - Steering Rack ends

    2 - Tie Rod Ends

    3 - Ball Joint
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.
