struts

  1. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I was changing my oil this weekend and happened to notice that the boot on the left hand strut is falling apart and has sagged down leaving the metal rod of the shock exposed. Upon taking a closer look I also found that the rubber at the top of the strut is split 2/3 of the way up, the sway bar...

  3. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    My 2007 CRV AWD is riding a little rough these days with 150k miles. Ride is bouncy, chirps some on turns, clunk when turning wheel all the way to left. I was thinking of doing all the stuff in the thread title at the same time, then get an alignment at the shop. Any reason not to do all this...
  4. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    This is for a 2004 Honda CR-V, with about 115,000 miles on it... My mechanic says I need new upper strut front mounts. He says they're about $90 each, and I'm looking at about $500 with labor. I think this is too much - and other work I've had done seems to be on the high side (ie, too...
  5. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Streets of San Diego are rated poor 3rd world at best. CR-V rides like an unsprung buckboard. Any idea how to soften the ride short of trading for a Buick which my friend the Cady/Buick dealer recommends. Is the Acura any better? Does anyone make a strut that will improve the ride? Any...

    I need some new front struts. What do you guys/gals in here prefer...KYB or Monroe...? Quality, durability, longevity etc. Also...Is Rockauto a pretty safe/reputable online parts store...? I have read and saw some negative reviews for Rockauto so I am a little hesitant to buy some...
  9. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hello All, I'm relatively new to the forum and I can't find anything on Dobinson springs and KYB struts. I'm looking to fix the rear sag and add a bit more rigidity and ground clearance to the ride. Any experiences out there, recommendations or advice? I plan on using the original top hats from...
  10. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    The dealer is quoting around close to $1k to replace the struts and leave the springs, if I want complete struts close to $1500. I can get new Monroes Quick struts for $96/side with shipping and do it my self. I have never taken apart struts with a spring compressor but is it something I...
  11. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I did another thread on the rear KYB rear struts. I am still happy with them a few months later, so I went ahead and got the front struts as well since the car has 130,000 on the original struts. It was a straight forward job. No need to even pull the brake calipers. Undo a 10mm bolt holding...

    Many part dealers has different front struts for 2004 and 2005 CRV,but some has the same part for both.Is there anyone who know the difference if there is some ?
  13. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My 2008 Honda CRV front driver side struts are leaky. I think the front passenger side also has some rattling noise. My mechanic suggested to replace both the front struts. He also suggested to consider replacing the rear sides, if I'm interested. The mechanic suggested to buy the complete strut...

    Monroe in my case, but I assume the question applies to all complete strut assemblies...do you need to torque the rod nut after installation? The instruction sheet included with the Monroes says to, but the Honda service manual makes no mention of this, and says only to torque the flange nuts on...
  15. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Mechanic said i need front struts. I’m hoping to do myself. I researched and found Monroe Econ-matic are crap. I read further an learne that even the quick- struts aren’t good. What strut should I get? My cr-v has 150k. Can I reuse the springs? Looks like quality struts don’t come with springs...
  16. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have a 2009 cr-v with 150k. I took it to a mechanic and they said front struts and sway bar links that are causing noise when turning. They said the ball joints are fine. But with that many parts torn out, should I do upper/lower ball joints while in there? Which wears out faster (upper or...

    I have a 2008 CRV assembled in Japan. I need to replace all four struts. I'm looking for complete loaded struts, like KYB Strut-Plus (not available for the front at this time) or Monroe Quick Strut. Has anyone with a 3rd generation CRV had a good experience with any aftermarket brand of complete...

    Just swapped out the factory rear struts with 128,000 miles on them after the driver side rear had been clunking for about the last 10,000 miles and was slowly coating the lower control arm in oil. Went with the KYB Strut-Plus all in one struts since the rear was sitting a little lower than it...

    Hello, I am new to the forum and the proud second owner of a 1998 CR-V 2WD Auto. I've had it for about 13 years now, its got 240,000 miles. Unfortunately on Saturday night when I pulled into the driveway and shut it off, massive amounts of steam rose from underneath the hood. It's at the shop...
  20. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I bought a 2001 LX 2wd with 130K from Coggin Honda in Ft Pierce for $2800.00... I haven't seen or touched it yet, but they did a timing belt on it and valve cover gaskets and possibly valve adjustment. Has solid tires and comes from a retirement area... Clean 2 owner car fax with prior owner...
