Hi,

I got a problem that sound similar with a rsx-s (or honda integra),
which is built very similar to a civic please read to see if it matches
your problem and let me know.

Also let us know if you manage to fix it.

Thanks, I will check for that.

I forgot to say that you can only hear the noise when pulling out
of the drive-way or turning around in parking lot. Or playing with the
steering wheel while car is idle.

It doesn't occur while driving nor does it affect handling of the car.

turning the steering wheel while car was idle and putting my hand on the
spring. The noise matches when the strut spring moves a little bit
suddently (it rotates a little in strokes maybe by half an inche or so
max in total, enough to fell it when it does).

Just a wild idea, could it be that the spring was mounted upside down?
everything seems well set and tight in my case too.
