  1. 1st gen lowered - rear sway bar end links

    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...
  2. 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...
  3. Anti-sway bar end links

    Problems & Issues
    I bought some antisway bar end links on and replaced them. I didn't expect it to improve the ride other than to stop the occasional rattle on the chassis. But, I was wrong. The ride is way better. That was money well spent. 1999, CR-V with 4x4.
  4. 2007 front sway bar link replacement

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Greetings! I'm in need of a new front sway bar link on my 2007. I've got my handy dandy Hanes repair manual, and the procedure for this looks a little tricky. Apparently with the 2007 and later models, there is a need to support the engine somehow, and lower the subframe 1-3/16 inches before...

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Howdy - first post! Sorry if it is a stupid question. I recently spoke with a mechanic who said my front left and right sway bar links needed to be replaced. When I look for the parts online, I can only find a general sway bar link kit that is not specifying left or right. The rear sway bar...

Also going to do front and rear brakes, complete with rotors and drums. any good deals on a complete...
  7. Rear struts, sway bar, and end links

    Problems & Issues
    My rear struts have been pretty bad for a while now. While I was going over a bump I heard a big snap. Turns out my left end link snapped off from the sway bar. So now I am considering replacing my rear struts, sway bar, end links, and bushings. I'm not greatly experienced. Is this a reasonable...

  10. Replacing end links: Distorted Thread Lock Nut

    Maintenance and Service
    So I replaced the rear end links on my 02 a few weeks ago. Out of curiosity, how in the HELL do they expect you to put a distorted thread lock nut on a bold that ISN'T fixed into place??? I ended up having the grip the link with a set of vice grips to even START the thread, which I'm sure...

    Maintenance and Service
    Today I put new swaybar links in the front because of clunking/rattle. To confirm that they in fact loose I made sure I didn't damage the old ones taking them off. I WD40'd the threads a few days before. Today I ran a 10mm x 1.25 die on the exposed...

    Hi I've just changed my roll bar link bars, quite easy, but when i had driven the car after completion i noticed that the right hand link where it joins the roll bar was sort off pointing upwards. Left hand link has roughly stayed straight. Is this how they are? Or have i done something wrong...
