    Maintenance and Service
    I finally found some KYB Strut Plus for the front end of my 2009 LX. What other parts should I have on hand when I start to replace them to insure I won't be doing the job twice? Bushings or other suspension parts? thanks, Rob

    Maintenance and Service
    I'm about to replace the front O2 sensor in my daughter's 2002 FWD LX. Why is the Denso 234-9005 so much cheaper at Amazon than at Auto Zone? But I digress... After that, it needs a state inspection, and here in TX they won't pass the vehicle until all the sensors read "ready." What's the...
