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.
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
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. :(
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.
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!
