    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hello - My Honda CR-V is a 2006 LX model. It has about 145000 miles on it. I no longer have a comfortable driving feeling when I drive the car.

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Morning all, I know it has probably been asked around here already, but I just can't find the answer. I found IronMan lift springs for my 1st gen V at a local dealer - they give +2 inches lift. The only question here that noone (even the dealer) is able to answer. Do I need longer shocks for...
