They are weight on the suspension, it wasn't my point saying rotors cause XYZ. There's an issue with the front suspension and Honda has been replacing assemblies without questions. Replacement's are'nt working either in this case. I personally don't think the active suspension is/was ready for the range of weather conditions people see. My first set and others, went on few miles and under cold weather conditions. My replacement set just went under ~30 days.

What I posted was in correlation to it, reduce weight to help another component last longer. Revised suspension, steering, brakes...just a coincidence in 2020 models. Even then, that won't help as there is something wrong in with the layout of the suspension as a whole if it can't take a little weather.
You’re explanation makes no sense and if there was a major issue with the suspension it’d be all over here. It sounds more like you’re frustrated with your situation more than anything. Have you checked your states lemon law and/or tried a buy back?

This update sounds like they’re making the car more comfortable like they did with the AP1 and AP2 S2000. From what I’ve read there’s new shocks comfort, bushings, steering changes for turn in feel, and I might have seen sway bars as well. All on par for Honda refreshing a performance trim.

I didn'y say "major", you said that. And there is a thread on here about it. And no, revised for w/e reason, they likely saw improvements were needed in one way or another. The R's front is prone to water getting in places it shouldn't 4K should not have rusted out strut assemblies, and repeat in a month.

I agree. If they give you any more bs next time, you should sell the car. Life’s too short to keep a car that you don’t enjoy.
I like the car, minus this issue and its not the DS. Something goofy is going on with a handful of R front suspensions. Honda didn't ask when two assemblies were replaced, gotta wonder why. e.g. Is there something off with the frame or mounting points that causes them to act up.

Let’s get these part numbers!
- brake rotors - 45251-TGH-A01
- brake pads - 45022-TGH-A12
- front grill - 71121-TGH-A51
- alcantara steering wheel - 78501-TGH-C90ZA
- shocks (Revalved and different voltage ranges?) - no change
- shifter (shorter for 2020) 54100-TGH-G01
- new knob 54102-TGH-G00
- bushings all around - no change
- front control arms and knuckle - no change
- active sound control

sorry no prices yet
I'm in Canada, I just have the part numbers
I order a 2020 in boost blue =)
So the part numbers of the rear upper and lower control arms didn't change?
That means that every fk8 that ever would need a new rear control arm gets better bushings.

New front lower control arms for 20MY is confirmed.
Also that post forgot to add the rear pads, grill parts above headlights, and shift knob nut.

The new Brembo discs and Girodiscs are both floating 2-piece. Aluminum hat connected to a cast iron rotor via pins with anti rattle spring washers.



Source/part number? I strongly doubt they would more than triple the cost of rotors for the car. Even very expensive Brembo floating 2-piece discs on high end cars (Gallardo, R8, etc) are cheaper than $500/ea. Maybe $500/pair.

I'll wait on the outcome of the new rotors. If they aren't done right (or in subpar conditions), they will make noise and possibly more noise than the pads on the OEM 17-19 models. That will be mechanical noise vs.pad(mechanical but correctable) noise so, harder to resolve. If they are done right, then sure, they will be in the mix of AM rotor options.

I honestly have no idea what you’re talking about in any of this post.

Front and rear suspension part numbers are all the same control arms, upper, lower, springs, shocks, knuckle.. etc.

So only the US gets the stiffer bushings?The rear arms are more then likely the Rear Trailing arm bushings that got stiffer.

Please research the difference in the two types and then read it. There are plenty of threads about noisy two piece systems whether by design, or issues with the way they are made. More parts in a sense with the floating hub. We will wait and see.
