Default 2002 CR-V Rear Struts

Greetings all;

I need to replace the rear strut assemblies (fluid leaking, noise over
bumps), but would like something a bit stronger than Honda offers. I
slightly overload the cargo area once in a while and would like the
replacements to last longer and not sag as much.

I live on a dirt road that is poorly maintained and now that the snow is
beginning to melt it is one pothole after another. My CR-V has had to deal
with this road nearly everyday since we bought it new. I suppose this
explains the premature failure of the struts as well as the rear bearings.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Bill

-----------------------------------

Worn 'sway bar links' are way more likely the cause of a CLACK noise.
You can get them off eBay for about half-price. Buyer beware.
Here's an example of what they look like for a first generation CR-V.

Here's a web page with three or four suggestions from actual
'sufferers'.

No advice about shocks. They get discussed here a bit:

Search first, ask questions later. It's WAY faster.
