I think you are right California98Civic, took it to the local dealer here and they were only willing to do the minimum for safety. They did correctly diagnose a broken axle and replace it. But I think I will be better off going to a motor sports oriented place that has worked on these cars more often, and care more about the car than the minimum for safety.
