How to tell if your sway bar bushings are bad

Never thought to check the sway bar until I saw it almost dangling when my wheel was turned in the driveway. Next week im doing all the shocks, and this thing is seriously gonna ride like new!

Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem. I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest. Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've put out there, that would be great.

Anti Roll Sway Bar Drop Link Replacement Vauxhall Opel
Skip Intro 5:07 I discovered you can change these drop links without jacking up or removing the wheels. It took me about an hour as the extra time it takes undoing the nuts is saved by not removing the wheels. Turn the steering on full lock and you can get to the nuts while laying on the floor. Remove the top joint first as it helps with removing the bottom one. I found replacing the nearside easier probably because I'm right handed. I bought a pair of droplinks off eBay for £11. But they don't look as strong as the original Vauxhall ones. I'll see how long these last and put the results here. This is quite an easy job and stops that annoying knocking noise. Although this was done on a 2008 1.7CDTi Corsa it should be the same for most of the Vauxhall range





Regular Oil vs Synthetic Oil -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Lately I've been seeing a lot of posts over at the forum talking about switching to synthetic oil with less than ideal results. Instead of typing out the same answer over and over I thought I would make this short video to help explain my experiences with synthetic oil. I'm not saying synthetic oil is bad, in fact it has it's place but my opinion is that place is not in your 15 year old Toyota or Chevy. The reasons as explained in the video are that synthetic has different flow characteristics and can actually cause your engine to leak oil and run noisy. It's perfectly OK to run conventional oil of the correct viscosity and change it on a regular basis. You don't need to spend the extra money on synthetic oil if your owners manual does not call for it. I look forward to your comments on this.

Finding and Repairing Rear End Noise Honda Element/CRV -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ I've had more than one person come to me with questions about a noise from the rear end of their Honda Element or CRV. It just so happens that my 2004 Honda Element had a similar noise so I decided to investigate. Originally I had thought it was an issue with the rear lower control arm bushings or the upper strut mounts but after talking to my friend Scott Armstrong who also has an Element he convinced me to look at the rear stabilizer bushings. After looking at them I found them to be the source of the noise. I replaced them and went for a test drive to find that the noise was gone. This is a VERY inexpensive repair and I suggest you give it a try if you have a noise in the rear end of your Honda Element or CRV.

Honda Accord Sway Bar Bushings Replacement
A fastener by fastener tutorial for replacing the sway bar end bushings and frame bushings on 94-97 Accords. The common symptom of a failed sway bar bushing is a clunk or knocking sound when going over bumps. When one or more of the donut bushings crack metal to metal contact between the sway bar and the lower control arm occurs which causes the noise. For 1994-1997 Accords the bushings are sold separately and are Honda part number 51314-SM4-020. You will need a total of 8 (4 per side). In the video I say you can use penetrating oil on the frame bushings to make them slide on easier. I misspoke. Do NOT use petroleum based lubricants (such as penetrating oil) on the rubber and only use silicone based lubricants. Petroleum based lubes will harm the rubber silicone won't.
