No. They vary according to year, exact model and also depends upon which country the car is sold in. That's without taking into account any after sales modifications.

The only way to be absolutely certain of getting the correct original specification parts is to quote your VIN number when ordering.

The rear is lower than the front even with new shocks


the car sits on its springs, not the shocks. the shocks merely dampen the springs' movement.
Perhaps some new springs are in order, they do weaken and sag with age. another common problem is failure of airbag suspension system components. this causes a lot of *** dragging in luxury cars over 5 years old and is usually more expensive to fix than the car is worth.

Replacing the shocks & struts


If your not very mechanically inclined , Its best & safe for you & others not to try to change out struts. But if you are inclined, then this is what you need to do the job. Struts are shock absorbers that are inside of a highly compressed spring. You will need spring compressors that you can buy or rent at your local auto parts stores. You need to compress the spring before removing the center shock. If you do not compress the spring sufficiently the shock can come out at a high rate of speed causing injury to you & others. You will need to compress the spring from both sides, ( opposite from each other ) if you install a spring compressor on one side just put the other tool right across from it on the same spring. compressing the spring evenly on both sides. Not all at one time just on one side of the spring. After doing so remove the top & bottom nuts of the shock. Your rented or bought spring compressor should come with directions & illastrations to better assist you with the job. Good Luck.

When do I replace shocks and struts on 06 Honda Odyssey?


A easy test of the shock strut is go to a corner of your Honda and press down with both hands and quickly release your pressure. It will spring back up. It should not bounce, Do that on all four corners. The strut system lasts a good long time.

How do i replace the coil springs on a 2006 honda accord


Front are McPherson strut and you need highly specialised tools to change,plus they're under compression and if you are not experienced DON'T try to service them.Any brake-shock shop will change them out quickly and safely.The rear ones can be easily replaced with a floor jack and some common hand tools.Block the front tires(front and back of tire),jack car on the jack pad in front of the tire your going to change the spring.Remove the bottom shock bolt,this will allow the control arm to drop enough to pull out your old spring.Some times you need to unhook the sway bar to get added clearance.Replace the new spring making note of the original springs orientation.

How do you install adjustable lowering coilover springs on a 1991 Honda CRX SI?


NOT NECESSARILY IN ORDER: Remove the 2 nuts from the top of your shock tower under the hood - remove the pivot bolt at the bottom of your shock fork - remove the upper control arm ball joint nut - remove the lower control arm ball joint nut - bang on the thick metal near the ball joints with a hammer (not hitting the rubber or the ball joint's bolts - remove the tie rod ball joint nut and do the same with the hammer - pull the shock and spring assembly out - You might need a spring compressor to take out the stock spring safely - remove the nut on top of the shock - It's recommended that you replace your shocks now - install the new springs according to the directions with the package - get a camber correction kit for your car - put it back together and immediately go pay for an alignment. Good luck.

Right rear shock absorber detached from the top mounting point


Turns out that after 26 years and 233 thousand miles, the original strut gave up the ghost: Rust! I took the shock strut assembly out of a 'spare parts' Honda Accord I keep and replaced the broken one in the Honda I am now driving. Mechanically the car is still excellent, but the car is destined to dissolve around me! To remove the whole assembly required taking out one 14mm bolt at the bottom and three 12mm bolts at the top, some WD 40, several pieces of wood for leverage and a heavy mallet.. Since there is a heavy duty coil spring involved, one should take out the bottom bolt first and lift the bottom of the strut free from its position, ( this is where I used a long 2x4 and another piece of wood as the fulcrum point to pry the strut upward) Then undo the top 3 bolts and the whole unit falls out. You will also need to detach the brake fluid line that uses the strut itself as an anchor. The easiest way is to take the line off from the back of the brake drum housing ( 9mm nut) and remove the horseshoe clip and push the curved metal brake line through the small hole where the line is anchored to the strut. Use care as you will need to reattach the brake line again after installing the next shock strut. (Coil spring compression tool required) Needless to say, you will need to jack the car up and remove the rear tire first to access the whole thing.

2001 Honda CRV shock replacement


Well, there are no shocks on a Honda. There are struts. The front ones are more difficult than the rear. You will need a spring compressor kit (about $100). Once strut assembly is removed, compress spring, remove shock. Reinstall in reverse order.

Sometimes you will need to remove the brake lines from the calipers. Bleedthe brakes after reinstalling.
