Default Hi Guys ,I am desperately looking for some expert advise I have honda civic engine size 1.8...

...(2007)Auto Drive? I have just modified a tyre in this car of mine, recently i had changed my all four tyre's and added new tyre's and 17 inches rims (original size of the car rims was 15 inches before) later when i was driving on the humps (speed breaker) my car use to give a metal sound i think the tyre use to touch the above part of the car i could see and feel the the tire too ,,now after taking my car to the garage the mechanic advise me to put a rubber (bush)in the bottom of the springs (suspension) i did as per his advise,,, 24 hrs later when i started the car it gives a very powerful sound only in neutral and reverse (sounds like i have just started a 8 cylinder sports car heavy and powerful sound) but when i am driving in the drive mode the car sounds normal like 1.8 size engine

adding to the above comments i was advise by the mechanic to put a normal rubber (bush) at the bottom of the suspension spring it did work actually but the fact that it actually brought the car level high so the tyre would not touch the upper layer of the car at times when i pass by the speed breaker

but my real concern is why does my car sound heavy like 8 cylinder sports car at the time when my car is in neutral or when i reverse but when i move forward on drive mode the sound its back to normal again ,,, i think my mechanic misplaced something here at the time fitting my car during the process i even saw him removing and again putting in the small barrel of the suspension ,,Guys looking for your valuable suggestion and advise

what exact tyre size are you using example. 215/45/17

205's / 215's / 225's / 235's

the higher the tyre size 235 etc the thinner the rubber will be on your tyre resulting in the car running lower, hence why the mechanic saying to you to put bushes in the suspension

It also can differ to what type of bushes you put in.

polyurethane- which they use for modifying.

rubber bushes- which is standard type of bush.

Is your car lowered as if it is you may be catching your exhaust system on the speed bumps and chaffing away or knocking the exhaust causing a blow sounding like a v8
