  1. Do I need to do a wheel alignment after a strut / shock replacement?

  2. Check fuel cap after driver's side strut replacement

    Problems & Issues
    We RARELY get the 'check fuel cap' message on our 2012-CRV (83K miles), but it started right after having the driver side front strut replaced. Would that repair get anywhere near the evap system/hoses ? We've tried re-tightening the cap, so wondering if that repair might have contributed. Thanks.

  8. Gen 4 (2012-2016) Rear Shock (Strut) Replacement?

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I haven't stumbled on a video or post that shows how to replace the rear shocks (struts) on a Gen 4 CRV. Watched a video for a Gen 3 and assume it's not too different from that process, which seems pretty involved. One thing not mentioned in the video - do you need a rear and 4-wheel alignment...

    Maintenance and Service
    This weekend I noticed that the strut boots on my 2010 CRV are splitting in several places. It is still on extended warranty so I asked the dealer about them. He said that they are covered and that they replace only the boots. Seems like a ton of labor for just boots. I was kind of expecting...
