  1. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    I just replaced the rear shocks and took some pictures along the way in case they are useful to someone else looking to do this. The front OEM struts are not too much more expensive than just buying the shocks, but the rear strut assembly (OEM) is about 3X the price of the shocks alone, so I...
  2. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    I own a 2008 Accord 4 door sedan 4 cylinder. I drove it for about five years and the place where I take it for service told me I needed new struts. I put it off for about a year but got new ones about 6 months ago. They lasted about 6 months. I take them back to the service station and they...
  3. The 8th Generation

  6. The Early Generations
    I have a 1997 Accord that has been making a sort of clunking noise when I hit potholes or go up or down some curbs and driveways from the front driver side wheel. At first I thought I needed to replace the Axel (has been replaced a couple times already through the yrs) but then someone told me...
