Hi Everyone
Just after some advice, just had my car hunter aligned, the guy said that he could not adjust the passenger side rear as the bush was seized and is way out of alignment, what can i do to fix this, what do i have to order? any ideas?

Get the hacksaw out and speak with Si @ Hendy for a price on a new geo bolt.

If it's a rear they can sometimes be freed off with the right gear

Not had the rear sieze, is it just camber and toe adjustment so two bolts?

worst case if you cant find a mechanical superman like Ray is you cut them out, grease the shit out of your new uns and pop them in

Use a marine grease, or something like Wurth AL1100, which will protect them properly long term.

lol, the "right gear" is a lump hammer it's the only bush bolt you can get a decent swing angle to hit. Seriously though if you don't want to ruin the bolt like I did then you could use one of those ball joint presses that looks like a G-cramp to press the bolt out.

I greased mine with Corrosion Block ACF-50 Corrosion Block - Anti-Corrosion compound, oil and grease and that's done the trick for a number of years now with no re-greasing.

There are parts diagrams on lings which make it easy, the adjuster bolts have a a cam on a sleeve and i'm sure are just called adjustment bolt by Honda

they are not cheap but not crazy money
