    This video covers the entire process of replacing the rear struts on a 2004-2008 Acura TL. This procedure is also very similar to the 2003-2008 Honda Accord.

    If going with aftermarket stuff Ive had good luck with KYB brand

    Removing seats to get to struts……I’ll stick to my Chevy Dude! More money for you though!

    It's an ETCG revival. Acura repair videos for the win!

    I thought you died bro. Welcome back !
    What happened ??


    Hey Eric, My 2015 Corolla 100k miles has front struts that are super firm. I thought when struts failed, the car became bouncy and without dampening. If I press down on the front of the car, it barely moves at all. Is this likely to be the struts?

    Now do it without the fancy spring compressor… Not recommended…. If doing this in the driveway just get loaded struts.

    so I just dealt with my trans oil cooler split and turned my coolant into a chocolate milkshake. I guess a good show idea if you like transmission fluid up to your armpits.

    Great video series. I have a 2006 TL that I bought 4 years back. It's proven fairly reliable and affordable to maintain so far.
    I don't "need" new rear shocks at 120K miles, but it's on my longer term to-do list. I was a little dismayed to see how expensive the completed assemblies cost.
    Apparently 2006 is a different part number, costing $400 each!?

    I mean, it's cheaper than paying someone else, but boo hoo for the 2006 part costing more.

    I counted no less than five arms on one side in the back! Together with the full damper this must be one smooth riding vehicle!

    Who are the losers disliking a DIY video that is meant to help people do the same if they need to? For the love of me, I could never understand those people.

    I have no idea why Honda doesn't make a full size nut on the links instead of a rounded piece to make it easy to remove. 9/10 times the allen key hole will be rounded and you might need a torch…


    still seems viable . looks like I won;t have to replace it. ……………………… Maybe you will, if you actually are a mechanic.


    Are these Acuras just an accord? I’m In the eu.

    Ben a couple years since I watched! Nicely done Eric!


    Thanks for the previous notice about the Haynes manuals. I got Christmas presents for the family that make sense.

    I believe when I did my rear struts on my old 2002 Camry, it was somewhat similar to this process


    Ah I love these videos. I don’t even have an Acura TL. 😌

    KYB struts work well on Honda vehicles
