Would hear noise from rear when hitting a bump. After inspecting drums I checked bushings to find trailing arm
large bushing torn. Order replacement from Rockauto and installed myself.
Experienced a rattling noise in the rear of the vehicle.
Had been making a a rattle noise going over bumps which went away for a while when better tires were installed but it came back and required replacing
Low speed clunk from rear of car.
Had this problem in 2007, after owning the car for almost 10 years...
Bought this CR-V from original owner in 2007 (@ ~60K mi) and one of first diagnosis from mechanic was rear trailing arm bushings needed to be replace. Had them done in CA where I purchased the car and now, 100K mi later and in WI, need to have them replaced again. 2015 estimate from Appleton WI Honda Dealer is ~$870 per trailing arm...or about $1700 to do both. On a 16 year old vehicle. :(
I was told I need the lower control arm bushing replaced "Compliance Bushing"
Saw they were craked and I got them replaced... whole trailing arm, which is the best way to do it. It ensures the bushing is seated in the arm properly.
Have had to replace all bushings, cv joint, drive shaft +++
Bad rear bushings. The body dropped 3 inches. Metal to metal
contact.When all said and done it cost me $1260.00. Never a
Honda again. Screw Consumer Reports!
