So true, it should be a sticky....You bought 60 dollar axles from advanced auto is the problem. Do not EVER use aftermarket axles when lowering a car. You need OEM axles. Most parts of the car can use aftermarket stuff except axles
Axles turn at high revolutions per minute. They must be perfectly balanced or you will get vibration. These lower-quality aftermarket axles are made (really, poorly recycled) for "errand boys, sent by grocery clerks to collect a bill." That is a reference to the movie Apocalypse Now.
The cost of Honda axles is higher. Very tempting to go with an aftermarket brand. Don't! On the 7th Gen forums, about 50% of the aftermarket axles vibrate the day they are installed. Another 40% start vibrating within 6 months. About 10% get lucky.
Like drugs or buying a new Chevy- just don't do it.
