    well you guys wanted it... here ya go....
    1st off i'm going to skip a couple of steps such as putting the car on jack stands and taking off the wheels etc. This is Civic Nation we all should know how to do that by now.

    The OEM

    The aftermarket

    1st you need to acquire the tool need from your local advance auto shop. The tool is called a tie rod puller{huh] yeah i know weird.

    Then you need to remove the shock absorber [well i did needed slack for my shock absorber].
    [​IMG]

    Then you remove the cotton pin that holds your castle nut in place. Do not remove the castle nut b/c you'll need the support from this for your steering knuckle.
    [​IMG]

    Alright here is the easiest part but required the golden tool. With the tie rod puller insert it below the camber stud and in betw/ the ball joint.

    Boy that was easy.

    Now you need to remove the two pivot bolts that hold your upper camber to the car...

    Remove those two bolts and you are home free from there. Installation is reverse...

    When you're done you should get something like this....

    Hope this helps a lot of you..... Any questions just ask......

    Nice write-up :thumbs up

    For the most part, you can get by without the "tie rod puller", I usually take the nut off with a gun, then thread it back on a couple turns by hand to protect the threads, and give the knuckle a couple good whacks with a BFH on the mounting area to break loose the taper.

    Nice writeup man,

    I didn't need that tool as I just had a progress kit, which used the OEM UCM but the install was very straight forward.

    I see you have someone moving your post around also. I have the same trouble and i think its lame ass bullshit. Wtf are we in school or what? lol I personally think its in a good spot and was written very nice. Sometimes i'll have a retarded question and i get introuble for posting it in the wrong area. We all enjoy the same hobby so why cant we all just get along? I hope dude stops riding your ass i hate that s**t.

    you know what i thought about that b/c the book calls them the upper control arm. but then people would hesitate on what upper control arms are....so i just stuck w/ front cambers b/c Honda doesn't call them cambers but instead upper control arms...
