  1. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hi guys (and gals)! I recently replaced the infamous trailing arm bushings on my daughter's 99 CRV. There was some confusion about the depth these bushings have to be pushed in. The older ones were pushed to 17mm above the outside arm surface, but a TSB that I found about replacing these...

    There is a very noticeable gap on the left side of the trunk. There has been no body damage or collision. Dealer will not fix although we have bumper to bumper warranty.

    I just called my dealer to schedule an appointment for the recall. Seeing that they have free alignment check advertised on their website, I also asked to schedule an appointment as well for another car I have. To my surprise, he said no appointment needed. I asked if they needed to put my...

    I was thinking about changing the shocks on my 2003 Honda CR-V, but I don't know if there needs to be a wheel alignment. Please help.

    2018 EX. As we head into winter, I noticed that the rear window has a defroster line that zig zags below the wiper. But my wiper does not rest over this heater wire, but just above it. I'm guessing that this is mis-aligned, but wanted to check first, since I've never had a separate...

    Hi Yesterday I did visit Honda service center for regular check up and they suggested on the transmission fluid, differential-rear, wheel alignment and of course sales pitch of changing all 4 tires. I would like to know the suggestible maintenance really required for the 32,500 mileage...

    I went for an alignment Sunday and I have attached a pic of the final result printout. The tech said my vehicle right side camber is off, -0.7 degrees to the left and the caster is off, 1.03 degrees also to the left, and could not be adjusted. He did mention something about my struts might be...

    I 've owned a new 2018 EX L AWD for about 2 weeks and will be replacing the OEM Bridgestone Ecopia tires with Nokian WRG 3s this week. The tire retailer will be doing an alignment check in addition to the tire installation. If the alignment is found to need adjustment, would it be appropriate to...

    Some unkown driver scratched my left bumper and while this was a bit frustrating the more annoying part was that my left side of the trunk lid went out of alignment. I initially tried to see if I could adjust those rubber stoppers but that wasn't going to cut it. The state of my 2017 Touring is...

    Thought I'd share this in case anyone else needed it. It took all of 2 minutes. So my FWD EX-L CRV came with the passenger rear door misaligned. It was protruding quite a bit as you can hopefully tell from this picture. You can see it by looking at the top of the door versus the middle. It was...

    2017 cr-v pulls to the right After reading the above thread in it's entirety from January of this year, I just have to give my opinion in hopes it will save someone hard earned money in the future. Front end alignment on Honda consist of three (3) settings, Caster/Camber/ &Toe[, the first two...

    Due to a minor garage mishap, the DS fender on my 2013 was bumped up and to the rear. There is not any visible damage, but the fender is slightly out of alignment and is rubbing the door when opening/closing. I am going to re-align the fender myself, but I am not sure of the number or location...
  15. Shopping & Test Driving
    Hello! I am considering purchasing a 2011 Honda CR-V and I need some expert feedback! Specs below. It is 4WD, very low mileage at 35K miles, brand new tires, and in perfect condition. I test drove the vehicle and it drove very smoothly, but had a very slight lean to the right on the highway...

    I initially posted this in the wrong section. I need help putting on a door on a '99 Honda CRV. It will not line up. I was driving down the road unawares, at about 30-35 mph, going down a pretty steep slope, after having just crossed a high Colorado pass, when I let the CRV drift off the...

    You replace your inner or outer tie rod end, or perhaps some other part that can affect the wheel alignment, so then when you take your CRV (or other car) on a test drive, you realise that something is really wrong, the car does not want to go straight, and jerks the steering wheel around... You...

    If you put new wheels and tires on a new CRV does it need a wheel alignment too? Less than 1k miles on it.

    Hey All, My wife's 2011 EX-L got rear ended and they needed to replace the rear hatch along with a list of other things. Just got the car back yesterday. Everything looks good and lines up except the rear hatch. It seems to be offset to the right. The gap on the left side is much wider that the...
