What do you think about this video?

Joe Schowalter: Thanks for posting this video guys, really helpful! I did the job on my 2007 Honda Odyssey. It's pretty much the same with one exception that caused me some fits, so I thought I would post this. When dismantling the front Sway Bar End Link, you need a 17mm wrench on the bolt and you'll need an Alan wrench or a hex bit socket on the front of the threaded post. Mine had a lot of grime and corrosion in it so I didn't immediately see it. In the 2007 there's no bolt on the back as shown in the video. So when removing the end link if you don't use the hex bit, he ball joint just spins. In my case it spun for about an hour as I tried to use vice grips etc to free it... Ah the life of a shade tree mechanic. Hope that helps you 2007 guys... Not sure when they made the change since the video covers up to 2004. Here's the link to the sway bar end link for the Odyssey on the 1aauto site in case you're confused or need to replace them: ( http://www.1aauto.com/sway-bar-link-front-pair-beck---arnley-101-5302/i/basfk00016?f=548114&y=2001&utm_campaign=gb_csv_br&utm_content=SFK&gclid=CKq62MaUxMICFQsDaQodxHgAfg ) Merry Christmas, Joe

Joe Schowalter: Why not use your impact wrench remove the nuts?

Joe Schowalter: Do you need to use a torque wrench when attaching to bolt to the bearing plate?

Terry Kitagawa: Just completed installation on my 2003 Odyssey and it went very smoothly, just like the video, although it definitely requires a second hand to install the new strut.

manuel a: Will these struts fit a honda pilot 2004?

CarpenterLeo: about to do this to my 05 caravan. why do you need an alignment if you didn't move the tie rods? sorry if it's a dumb question, i'm still learning

Mike White: Great video, Thanks

binsel: What brand of shocks do you recommend for this vehicle? Also, I have short jack stands. I assume they should work.

1A Auto Parts: The shocks attach to the steering knuckle on this vehicle. So it throws the alignment off when you replace them.

subdood: Very nicely done how to video. The clear and concise narration was a kick - it sounded like the narration for the Vatican Christmas Eve mass... or like NASA narration!

Scott Duty: Great video. I notice you use non-OE struts. Some say non-OE struts don't last as long and don't ride as well as OE. Can you provide any info on your experience with non-OE struts. Thx!

firmfooted1: You guys are by far the most useful help I find on youtube. If you are ever in Cali and ever need a 87-88 Ford F250 that you want to demonstrate with, especially if you are working on a transfer case, I'd be glad to loan mine and pay.
