I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey EXL. Is it recommended to replace any other parts when replacing the shock absorbers on the rear, and if so, what other parts, i.e. struts, plates, etc?


Asked by Jul 17, 2015 at 02:09 PM about the 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ Nav and DVD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Someone with no job or insurance hit me from behind, not hard, but enough to make
something in the rear start making a knocking noise.  It has gotten worse over time
and I can hear it at lower speeds, but not at higher speeds.  I've had the car checked
out and they couldn't find anything loose, so they think it's the rear shocks because
one is leaking.  The quotes I've gotten range around $350-$400 for I guess just the
shocks.  I am wondering if there are any other parts that I should also have replaced
when they replace the shocks since I don't know what may be in the rear that may
also be in need of being replaced?

If nothing else is damaged,like the bumper under the cover, then just have the stocks replaced. Like the shop said, since one is leaking you will need to replace both of them anyhow. Once the job is done, the shop should inspect their work and see if the noise goes away.

Thank you, Tom.
