struts

  1. DIY
    I was replacing my struts in my 2003 LX I4 when the head of a bolt on this part came off. Calling every parts store in my area, no one could understand what I was talking about. I'm referring to the horse-shoe shaped, wishbone looking, forked piece that the bottom of the strut slides into...

    Hi, I've seen videos and diagrams on how to get interior access to the bolts for the rear struts on the Sedan. It looks easy, just move the back seat down, then pop a single panel off. The Coupe seems to be totally different. In the attached image, it seems you need to remove the paneling on...

    Will H&R Race Springs (2" F / 1.7" R) on OEM shocks reduce shock life? By how much? Hey guys, I'm planning on lowering my car but can't justify buying coilovers, I don't need the handling increase or the adjustability they provide so I settled on springs. Im currently at 250k km on the stock...

    Newbie here... Looking for advice to replace my OEM shocks and struts on my Accord 2007 v6 EX with 145,000 miles. I'm not to adverse on suspension. But I am not interested in lowering the ride of the car. I want to keep the original height of the car, or keep it close. But I would like some...

    Its been half a year since I have put in new lowering springs on my 8th gen Accord Coupe. Lowered about an inch and a half. Its been riding rough, added in spacers and those helped, but fell out a few months later. Now I'm worried if I should change tires or change the shock and struts. Also...

    Last month I started a thread "Cabin Rattle" in which I described a tinny, metallic sound coming from the right side of the cabin ('15 Coupe EX-L V6). Not really a rattle, or squeak, but in-between. I systematically tried everything to diagnose it, cleared all objects out, buckled all seat...

    Hey all, This is my first post. I did use the search button but was not able to find an answer. This is urgent as my wife is taking it for a weekend trip in just a few days. I am replacing my struts. I finished the front struts, no problem. Disassembled the OEM strut and swapped the bump...

    It's time for new shock absorbers on my 99 V6 coupe. Having never picked out a set and the market being a bombardment of various brands and respective performance claims, I could use some clarity. I'd like to hear some success (and perhaps some not-success) stories from those who have used...

    Hi guys, so I have a 9th gen 2013 Honda Accord Sport CVT with 9500k miles on it. My car has been making a low volume tapping/clicking sound randomly for a while now whenever I turn corners, do u -turns, drive over bumps and dips on the road, as well as whenever I drive on uneven roads. The...

    Hello Honda aficionados, I need some wise advice. My struts need replacing...rough riding and creakier handling. I took it to my mechanic, an honest one, for a quote on full assemblies. He recommended Monroe assemblies and quoted me $1436 tax total for four struts (after a $255 rebate, a "buy...

    So far, I've owned a 2013 Honda Accord LX for roughly a year and 13,500 miles. After an oil change by a mechanic other the dealership, he revealed to me of massive rust on the suspension struts. Note, I live in Los Angeles (which is in a drought) and have never driven to a snowy area but I have...

    My 05 Accord now has 215,000 miles on it. Other than brakes and rotors, I have never had to do any work to the suspension. This is a GREAT car. I plan to continue to take care of it and use as my daily driver. Im still getting 30+ mpg driving 60+ miles a day to and from work. I have noticed...

    I've had a suspension rattle in the front end since I purchased my Accord a couple of months ago. It was noticeable on the test drive, but since it was so similar to worn-endlink rattles I’ve dealt with before, I figured it was an easy fix. The professional inspection didn’t turn up any red...

    Listen, I've used the search function and it's just made me more confused. I just need someone to clear things up a bit for me and help me figure out exactly what I need to buy and do to get where I need to go. My 03 EX L V6 four door, has just under 200k on it. My right front strut/shock is...

    Are there any lowering springs available for this car? Thanks.
  16. The 7th Generation
    I have a 2005 Accord 2.4L Sedan with 232,000 miles on it. I changed out the struts around 110,000 miles and it did make the ride quality better but it didn't give me that stiffness I was hoping for. Do you guys think that I should change out my springs this time as well? I already bough the...
  17. Problems & Solutions
    89 accord. front left coil spring is broken so went to change both. Problem is I can't get the suspension fork bolt off (the one at the bottom of the fork). I've got the nut off and tried wailing on the bolt with a hammer. Tried hitting it while supporting the lower arm with a jack and while...

    Hey guys are there any aftermarket shocks/struts for the 4 cylinder sedans? My friend has a 99 V6 Accord Sedan and he is using Tokico Shocks with H&R Springs and I can't find any for the 08 i4 Accord Sedans. I plan on using H&R Sport Springs, if anyone has pics of their 4 cylinder sedans...

    Hey, so I have a spare hood. It's from a '98 V6 coupe and I'm wondering if it will fit on the sedan models. Are all the hoods the same? Also are they exactly the same for the I4 models? Again, hood info: '98 Accord EX V6 coupe >>hood struts too. Will it fit on sedans/I4 coupes? Thanks for...
