    Recently replaced the front struts on my 07 E with Master Pro units from O'Reilly. Came here to report they are working fine, but feel stiffer than the factory parts - folks who are real sensitive to ride quality might not like em. Then again, people who cart around heavy loads might prefer...

    I replaced my outer tie-rod ends about a month ago and tightened them just enough so the cotter pin hole aligned with the castle nut.

    Hi, my local dealer/servicer indicates that a "squeak" I hear from the left front side of car is caused by a bad strut, specifically the top hat mounting is broken. I have been driving with this noise for years...curious if this is an urgent/necessary repair as the coast is $494.

    Recently my wife took our 2003 Element into the mechanic to have them diagnose the loud knocking coming from the front and rear of the car. The mechanic, in his doom and gloom tone told us, "You really shouldn't be driving this vehicle!" It has a bad lower ball joint on the passenger side. It...

    Hello all, I recently went to Honda with my 2005 Element to get a oil change and when I returned they advised me the rear drivers side strut was leaking and $616.00 should cover the replacement. I never take a single opinion so I went to a independent repair guy who said he saw some seepage...

  11. Problems & Issues
    Okay, I'm sorry if it's wrong to start a new post, but I feel that I'm leaving my original post about changing my struts. That's been done, but I still have the creaking noise. I read through many posts and stumbled upon one mentioning a similar creaking sound when starting from a dead stop...

    I am a NYC driver and recently started to notice some front end issues... I have started to get a bounce in the frontend at moderate speeds (30-40mph), if applying the brake (esp in a turn) my E starts to bounce bad enough to give me the willies. And if I hit a bump/pothole just right the...
