  1. Wheel Vibration

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I have a 2003 CRV. If I drive very slowly, say 3-5 mph, I can feel a rubbing, and the car will actually sway left and right a little in sync with the tire or axle rotation, not engine rpm. At 30-60 mph, the vibration gets bad. I don't want to drive above 60 because the shaking is very bad...

  11. Gen 1 front axle anti-vibration bushing??

    Not sure what it's called, or what it does (educated guess in the title), but there's a hockey puck on the front axles on daughter's car. The puck is no longer attached (just dangling on the axle). CVs and boots in great shape, so seems a shame to replace the whole axle just because of the puck...
