car is aligned, seems to pull to the right, minor wobble issue is actually still there according to the specialist. Not too noticeable for me or at lease not as bad as it was. Assuming it really needs new axles on both sides. Could be a motor mount I need to look into more. Setting that aside to figure out later. I want to drive this next weekend.

I'll be right behind you. My TSX has 243k and in dire need of a suspension/chassis refresh. Fortune Auto coilovers on order, K-tuned UCAs, Progress rear sway, and every OEM rear bar with new bushings all on hand. Just need to figure out wheels. Tempted to go your route with silver RPF1s, but the Weds TC105Xs are real tempting. I've got to stay with a 17x8 wheel to be compliant with NASA H2 (Honda Challenge) regs. I've got an s2000 I've built for H1, but I'd like my son to have something to race as well.

Are the TL-S front bushings that much stiffer?

Nice build going! Do you have Insta? Wasn’t planning on wheels but I had saw a good deal, the car was on stock suspension and it looked funky so I needed coils, then camber kits. From there the rest followed haha. The TLS bushing was more a replacement from the Stock blown out one. I really didn’t feel a difference because the car was fully stock and I’m not a crazy expert on suspension. Not a noticeable difference like installing the rest of the stuff I have on the car. I am going to go spherical route when ready for next track day for more response on the steering and handling. Your son would love the tsx on track! I feel super safe

thought I’d share my buttonwillow experience over the weekend. Nothing modification related.

wow! This car has completely blown me away with the capability now. The car instantly felt so much more responsive. I had also felt so much more confident behind the wheel. 45-65 degree temperatures. Compared to the 2:24pb in august. Shaved off a second every session starting at 2:18 in the first session, down to 2:13.9 in the last session. (CW13). The car is definitely capable. Was also nice to record my laps and review them to work on taking the right lines, I need more seat time . Overall, great starting point of where I want to go with the build.

also got to see Tony out here doing his thing. This car sounds so mean! Sorry @tr3flip 😅I threw this photo in my package while scrolling through the pits.

Took my tsx back to raceprep garage for some unfinished business. Big shoutout to Tony Jackson, he went ahead and installed his signature OE+ modified monoball rear LCAs. With modified front LCA fully monoball, and pci compliance bearing. Brake lines on order, as well as some race pads. Getting more dialed for next track weekend.

Wow nice!I got them at coilover depot came only in a few days. track it stock so you could feel the cars difference in modifications. Thanks for following along by the way. I have some new stuff going in this weekend I haven’t posted yet so stay tuned! By any means I am no one to get track advice from I am still learning myself as I go along with the build. A great build thread I recommend Tony’s (@tr3flip) . That’s where I go to get good ideas.
I am coming from my S2000 that I used to track, so it won't be a completely new experience anyway. I do have some things that NEED to be addressed before I can track it. The bushings are all completely shot, as well as the brakes, so while I would rather have tracked it stock first, it honestly didn't feel save to be pushing it as it was/is. Things are on their way in, and I will begin working on it shortly. Love the progress on yours so far.
