  1. Struts, tie rod ends, sway bar links/bushings, ball joints at same time?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    My 2007 CRV AWD is riding a little rough these days with 150k miles. Ride is bouncy, chirps some on turns, clunk when turning wheel all the way to left. I was thinking of doing all the stuff in the thread title at the same time, then get an alignment at the shop. Any reason not to do all this...
  2. Bar above muffler rust

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 CR-V
    Hey everyone, When I dropped the muffler to install a hitch on my 03 CR-V I found a bar that is rusted completely through. The rest of the vehicle is completely rust free.. anybody know of a replacement bar or what it's for? Assuming it's for chassis stiffness..
  3. 2007-2011 CRV with factory cross bars: Light Bar recommendations

    Hey Folks, I was hoping to pick your brains on light bars--I would like one that was thin enough to mount in front of the front cross bar of the OEM roof rack. The bar is about 1.25 to 1.5" tall and about 30" wide. I'm hoping to find one that matches the profile of the bar so the wind...
  4. Roof Rack- Distance from front bar to hatch crease?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    We're trying to work out if the Thule Pulse L cargo box we have would fit on the 2018 CRV and without obstructing the rear hatch opening. eTrailer says you need approxiamtely 46 inches from the center of the front cross bar to the hatch seam and that held true on our Jeep. So...does anyone...
  5. Need to clean stabiliser bar when replacing bushings?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I replaced my front stabiliser bushings on a Gen 1 Crv and I noticed the part of the stabiliser bar where the bushings are attached/the bar pivots are quite rough/pitted/corrosion. I'm assuming leaving them like that may accelerate the wear of the new bushing, should I be cleaning up the...

  7. PD'd the chrome bar across the grill

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    The CR-V is a pretty homely vehicle from the front, so it took me an afternoon to blackout the front chrome bar with Plasti-Dip. I used 6 coats and 2 more of clear coat.
  8. 97-01 First Gen LED Light Bar Installation

    I purchased a 22” Autofeel LED light bar (6000k/3000k/STROBE) for my bull bar to enhance lighting in certain weather conditions. I was wondering if anyone has installed one overhead on top of the windshield area. I was thinking of different mounting options like roof rack tray mounted or mounted...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi: We have the 2018 Touring with Display Audio/Navigation and would someone know if it is possible to display a Progress Bar while playing a song from an iPod? We have the 2014 CR-V too and you can see how much of the song is remaining while playing the song. Thanks in advance. Doug

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I just finished installing a set of coilovers on my daughter's CRV. The rear sway bar end links are too long now that it's lowered. I remember reading about this problem a while back, but I've been searching for the last 30 minutes for the answer with no luck. What sway bar end links will I...

  15. 2015 CR-V cross bar question, and cargo bag that fits

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    The distance between the cross bars (not adjustable) are 28". I can't find any roof backs that would fit between the bars. I'd say the space is 28" long, and 41 inches wide. Could the front bar be adjusted forward? It's screw into the rails, and new holes would need to be drilled. I'd probably...
  16. No tool bar - no multi quote

    Website & Platform Help
    Am I the only one that no longer has a tool bar for bold, underline, italic, etc? Also, why do I have to delete "user name" when I log in? If I don't delete "user name", my user name is entered as "user name crv383". When I use multi quote, only the last quote appears in my reply. Thanks.

  19. How to tell if a sway bar link is bad?

    Maintenance and Service
    My 2008 CR-V is making the kind of noise that almost sounds like failing sway bar links, however when I tried to take a visual, I just don't *see* any thing abnormal, for all four links, they don't show any play if I try to grab on the links, no matter how hard I was trying. If I use a pry bar...
  20. 2005 (2nd Gen) sway bar links - are they under tension or anything?

    Problems & Issues
    I need to replace my sway bar links. Having never done this before, when unbolted, is the sway bar going to pop or jump on me? On a side note - I *know* I posted a question about "name this part" - and included a picture of the sway bar link. Dang'd if I can find it now. Is it just me with...
