  1. Trailing arm bushings 01 Gen 1.5?

    Maintenance and Service
    Recently I was on a fire road and made a U turn it a turn around and while I was turning the trailing arm bushing, on my rear passenger side, slipped out of my trailing arm. This left my wheel with room to play in 4 directions so I parked it for the night. The next day I I went back out to the...
  2. Need to clean stabiliser bar when replacing bushings?

    Tires, Wheels and 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...
  3. Dampers, Bushings and Bumps in the Night

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    My CR-V (tan) has had a strange sound from the front since I bought it, and only when leaving the driveway. Nothing seems loose, the stabilizer bar connectors are all intact, etc. But it has been minor enough that I haven't bothered to track it down. The blue CR-V, though, has a knock in the...
  4. Trailing arm bushings and bolts help

    Maintenance and Service
    I'm currently replacing rear hubs and bearings. Got everything apart except I couldn't get the rear aligning cam bolt out of the bushing. It must be seized. I was going to cut it, but I can't find them online? Are they actually cam bolts? Or can I use a standard bolt? I took the nut off and...
  5. Shifter bushings??

    Under The Hood / Performance
    Anyone know of good (or ANY) shifter bushings for a 2006 CRV?? I've looked around the internet and found nothing. Doesn't look like anyone makes them specifically, but I wonder if anything from another vehicle might fit it?

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey everyone. I seek advice... So I have a 1997 cr-v with 215,000 miles on it. This thing has been great. I just replaced the timing belt. No signs of any fluid leaks. I recently replaced the sway bar end links to eliminate that knocking sound I had assumed was something much worse after my...
  8. Rear Sway bar bushings and link sways 2004 Honda CRV EX

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi, A couple years ago a mechanic told me I should replace my bushings and/or the link sways (I can't remember what as I just ignored his recommendation). Anyhow, a couple yrs later only on very low speeds I am noticing some noise from my rear end (And it isn't from fibre). Anyhow, how do I...

  12. trailing arm bushings 2006 crv

    Maintenance and Service
    Has anyone replaced these themselves? The outer bushings in front of the rear tire are beat out. Honda here in Nova Scotia says that the trailing arm is not serviceable and the arm needs to be replaced. Very costly. I don't believe this is correct as I have found some aftermarket bushings...
  13. Brake noise when at complete stop

    Problems & Issues
    So I'm a newbie here. I have a 1999 CR-V with 138K miles on it. The CR-V was making a light squeaking noise when letting up off of the brake, and after research I found out that it was the brake shoes squeaking against the backing plate when I released the brake. So I had a friend of mine that...
  14. Bad tire wear, caused by torn rear trailing arm bushings?

    Problems & Issues
    All, Lots of searching but I haven't seen an answer yet. Had my '99 CR-V EX up in the air a few days ago and found some pretty bad wear on the inside edge of both rear tires. For the most part the tread wear is even across the width of the tire but the inside edge is worn almost like a...
  15. Rear lower control arm bushings

    Problems & Issues
    I am looking for rear lower control arm bushings for my 98 crv. When I was doing my suspension and replacing parts I found out that the rear lower control arm is loose. This probably is what causes my car having alignment issues. The whole part is expensive. Are there any bushings that will fit...

    I have a 1997 CRV with 245k miles that needs to have the front sway bar endlinks and bushings replaced. I am trying to figure out exactly what parts will be needed. I will not be doing the work but will probably give the parts to someone to do it. If I got with OEM do I need parts 2 and 4...

  20. 97 Rear lower control arm info.

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I have a 97 AWD, and have been having some issues. My rear lower control arm bushings break very often. I have replaced them with oem, aftermarket and even found that 92-95 civic bushings press just perfect. But none withstands the abuse. I was looking around to see if anyone has found...
