peachferrari: And also like most people on the internet you don't know the difference
between silicon and silicone. Overall good job though.
showmethedammovie: I am about to do the same job. You recommended bushings or anything?
Ilike2helppl: Are you a member on OdyClub? Thanks!
James Crowton: Awesome video!! I had both my rear coil springs busted so I replaced them
and replaced my shocks. Took my 4 hours to do both sides because I had to
mess with my rear swaybar links, I only have heat and penetrating spray, No
air tools just deep impact sockets and a wrench.
forseeit: OdyClub? - Yes, I'm a member - probably any Odyssey owner who has ever had
a transmission problem or "side door not opening" problem (I think that
cover everyone) has at least visited OdyClub - super helpful site. I didn't
post a link there to this video (I'm lazy) - but will eventually get around
pumpkinman3211: about 2 months after i post this we had and accident to where a drunk
person in a mid to late Dodge Durrango or Ram hit it from the back to the
point where it couldn't move it didn't move for about a week then our
insurence said it was totaled so we got a 2002 Honda now it has 219 k
really ggod car now it s in a recall
SergSpace: Perhaps, you were looking for Control Arm bushing but this one is not.Try
e-bay for"Strut Mounting Bushing" I had the same problem with squeaking and
I saw the same bushing wore off on my 1997. I went to 2 shops of Autozone,
2 O'Reilly stores and Honda Parts. The last one could recognize the part
and order it and 1 man from O'Reilly. Others had not a clue. Anyway, check
e-bay "Replacement Strut Mounting Bushing". This should be it. In my case,
replacing shock absorbers, stopped squeaking.
SergSpace: Thanks a lot! Your video gave me a confidence. I replaced 2 shock absorbers
on Honda Odyssey 97. But in my case. there were no cables attached to fork
bracket, where spring goes. In my case, the upper part is connected with 2
bolts, which are held by nuts, which I could reach from inside of car by
removing a plastic cover after folding 3rd seat row and removing spare
tire. It's easier than sounds. By the way, my spring seats weren't worn as
yours, but I replaced them anyway.
forseeit: Shocks are probably shot, so the van is just bouncing on the springs.
Either that, or your dad is gunning it over teh bumps just to make you
bounce around in the back.
forseeit: Just the bushings at the bottom of the spring - if your obsessive or the
bushings are cheap. I went with no bushing on bottom of spring, and see no
bad effects 2 years later.
forseeit: @MrYankeeplayer - happy it helped. It's one of those jobs that sounds a lot
bigger than it turns out to be. Fun to tell others about though: "Yep,
changed the shocks and springs on the van...special equipment needed?...Ohh
yeah, LOTS of tools...big job..." (don't mention the "stomp on it with your
foot 'till the spring comes free" part - it takes the magic out of it...)
pumpkinman3211: my dad has a 2000 odyssey with 210,000 and when your in the very back of
the van and you hit a bump in the road it feels like you are going to get
ejected from the van is this normal for the 2000 model or is there
something wrong with the suspention
copycatproduction: I hear scraping with a full load on my 95 honda ody. I found the control
arm bushing is worn and the control arm is scraping with the rim. Right at
2:10, That bushing just above your foot is worn on my 95 honda ody. I
noticed it is not part of the Control Arm, and mounted onto the knuckle.
Cant seem to find that bushing anywhere, or at least the name of it or part
number. Can you help me locate that bushing so I can replace them. Local
Parts stores here are Oreillys, Autozone, and Napa.
