  3. installed kyb rear struts on 07 crv, not too difficult

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I just finished doing the rears on our AWD 07. I ordered the kyb gr-2's because one of the rears bled out its oil last week. It took me about 1 1/2 hrs each side, since I had never worked on this car before. I had to use my cheap harbor freight spring compressor, but really no other special...

  6. Installed Curt 13555 hitch with pics

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I installed my Curt hitch this morning, it only took about 30 mins and was pretty easy. I used jack stands to hold the hitch up while I bolted it in. This thing is pretty heavy and a beast. It is definitely over kill for the CR-V. However, I'm not doing any towing with it anytime soon, I just...

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Here are pics of the Kuhmo tires I purchased for the crv. I have about 750 miles on them now. They handle well and are quiet at highway speed. I went with 235 65 17 no change to the speedo and averaged 30 MPG form the U.P. back to Northeast WI. It was a little more that 200 one way.

    I was finally able to track down this pod. It has been discontinued but Jegs still has them. Search for autometer part 15500. Anyway, I used rivets, flexible 3m putty and SEM color matched paint to make a really nice looking pillar pod. (IMO) Pics:
  13. Has anyone installed VSS3000 or 4000 in a 2010 CRV EX-L Navi

    Mobile Electronics
    I was wondering if anyone has installed the VSS3000 or VSS4000. I like the idea of having a starter on the iPhone than another remote making my key ring that much bigger. If so, how was installation, how many additional parts were needed? Thanks for the input.
  14. Aftermarket Backup Camera and Backup Sensors installed in 11 CRV-LX

    Mobile Electronics
    My dad picked up a Silver 2011 CRV-LX last month. Very nice vehicle, looks very classy. Especially since the 2011 comes with a few upgrades even in the LX trim such as tinted glass and alloy wheels. Since I can't live without doing some sort of mod to a vehicle, and adding an amp and sub is...

    I got my CRV almost a year now. I always want to improve the lighting since the headlights are not that great to begin with. Anyway, I had a set of Hella 500 driving lights from my previous car that had been lying around for quite some time now. In the beginning, I was looking for a set of OEM...

    I previously reported installing Polk Audio db6501 6.5" component speakers in the front doors of my 2011 SE and powering them with just the factory headunit (click here). It sounded good at first but I later felt that the sound lacked bass impact and overall dynamics (sounded little...

    I installed a OEM fog light kit on my gen 3 (2007) v today. Not bad to install, the hardest part was getting the cover off the steering wheel, to replace the switch, and/or the removal of the front bumper (always afraid those plastic tabs are gonna break) . What a difference it makes.... not...

  20. H&R Springs Installed on a 2011

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I replaced the stock springs on my CR-V with H&R Sport Springs (51822). The job took about 8 hours *but* I have a hydraulic lift and a lot of tools. One tool I really appreciate is a custom made strut shaft holder that allows removing and torquing the nut on the shaft. Honda's special tool is...
