    Sounds like a lash adjuster. They tend to tick because they won't pump up. I used to have a tick in my truck and after a few oil changes with high mileage oil it has seemed to get better

    Is there anything else that can be done to fix it? I will give that a shot though, I need to change the oil anyways for piece of mind.

    Got the wheels in tonight so I cleaned them up and threw them on. Should be getting my tires swapped over in the morning. I really need to do something about this stock height soon.

    I hate to say it but I'm going to do whatever it takes to not mess with them. These fenders are perfect and I learned my lession with my old car. The wheels are only a 17x9 +24 so it should be fine and I don't plan on going super low

    The yellow wheels look a lot better than I thought they would. I know what you mean about needing to lower your car. I have had mine for 3 months and still haven't lowered it yet...

    Man that's a lot of yellow. I dig it though. The lash adjusters..... Well you can pull the cams and change them with new parts. Not much other than maybe before you do the oil change like right before drain a quart of oil add in a quart of marvel mystery oil/atf for about 30/45 mins idling and let it do it work. Then in the new oil change add 1/4 quart to the new oil. The cleaners in the oil will help break down the bad stuff to help clean the oil passages

    Your old suspension setup would look killer. However I feel you on the fenders thing, just rolled mine and slammed the rear with adjustable lca's, and coilovers up front. Rides sooo stiff

    Most likely H&R ss's or Eibach sportlines. I was looking at the BMR springs like DFG_magic has though

    Im not too worried about the ride I just don't want to deal with the headache of rolling them lol. It would definitely look sick slammed though! Yours looks killer with the new setup

    Haha I've got a lowered Honda too and it rides great. I've heard the H&R Race springs are pretty stiff but I want a little more drop. the5.ohh what are yours spring rates? I had 10" 375 lb front springs on my 95 and it drove/handled great

    Sorry just saw the other question. I have 12" 250lb up front with Strange 10 way adjustables. Its not bad its just a stiff ride compared to my old cut B springs and shot KYB shocks and struts. But my whole suspension is stiff, its how I set it up. It rides nice though I can't lie, just not forgiving over bumps at all haha
