    Hi All,

    I have an bone-stock 1995 Acura Integra Special Edition. No aftermarket parts at all. When I go up and down hills sometimes the car bottoms out. I know most cars dont' because when I drive my other cars they don't bottom out. Also, the 1995 Integra is not lowered and is bottoming out with no cargo and only one person (driver) in the car.

    What could be the cause of this? It has about 140,000 miles on it, so i'm assuming its wear and tear on the car. Would it be the struts or shocks? or both?

    Could anyone give me any suggestions on what to purchase to fix this problem?

    Would you recommend buying used struts/shocks off an '01 integra? Or just go aftermarket? I am *NOT* looking to lower my car at all. I just want to prevent the car from bottoming out.

    Thanks in advance!

    saggy springs maby, shocks are for rebound and compresion purposes so they shouldnt be bad.
