Right side bushing was completely destroyed causing a clunking noise over uneven roads, and left side was cracking. Replaced the lower control arms myself. Easy fix using basic tools and total cost was around $130.

Went to Honda for oil change and now they tell me I need a compliance bushing rair for $480.00! I can't afford this so I may need to stop driving for a while. No more Hondas for me.

Bushings are cracked in the front. I was told that it was pretty typical wear and tear for this mileage. Requires bushings to be repaired for around $700.

my left side bushing also broke, front end made a lot clicking sound in sharp turns. Replace with new.
Same issue, was told by the Honda dealership mechanic that the bushings need to be replaced. He pointed it out to me and I looked and that was the case. Quoted $385 to replace both sides at Norm Reeves Honda at Cerritos.

Loud clunk noise when turning in particular. Dealership mechanic quoted $630 to replace the Bushings. Getting it done tomorrow.

I was quoted $675.00 which I found to be high as I was told this is more labour intensive as opposed to actual parts. Much appreciate any comments or suggestions.

I went in to my Honda Dealership for a regular oil change. One of the supervisors came and spoke with me to tell me I had a crack in my compliance bushings that would cost around $400. I didn't have the money for that at the time so I declined the service that time. Once driving over the next 2 months I noticed increased vibrating when I was breaking so I figured that was most likely the problem. I ended up getting the bushings replaced on my next oil change.

Had to have these replaced at least once by 77k miles, now (133k) looks like I'll have to do it again soon.
