Front compliance bushings may crack and break. Damaged bushing should be replaced before damaged is done to suspension components.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
