Rear Damper Replacement 2001 Honda Odyssey -EricTheCarGuy

While working on my Odyssey I noticed that the dampers were starting to leak. Leaking dampers aren’t long for this world so I decided to change them. It’s not a difficult job, one that a DIY could easily do in my opinion. You may run into issues like you often do working on old rusty vehicles though. Just to be prepared, you might want to have a torch handy. A torch is my goto tool when I run into stuff like that. I also recommend using air tools to remove old rusty fasteners. It really cuts down on the broken fasteners. As for the type of dampers to use, well, that’s up to you. Personally, I think the OE stuff is the best. You will pay for it however. I’ll leave that up to you and your budget. Here’s some useful links for you.

  1. Thanks, Eric. Would my need for new dampers be evidenced by leaking fluid and a slight crunchy pulsing noise at low speeds from the rear drivers wheel? I'm experiencing a crunchy noise when brakes are applied at under 15mph. Brakes and rotors appear to be fine but fluid is definitely leaking from the damper.

  2. Eric do a great job. Maybe someone mention that before in comments. I want to add that you all should tight mounting points of a shock absorber when car is standing on wheels. That prevents twisting of rubber.

  3. Since the bottom stud is at a weird angle the manual states to compress the shock to clear the top part of the frame and you can maneuver it better. Takes a lot less hammering to get it off. Same thing on putting it on. Compress first and it slides right on the stud.

  4. why are you always alone in these videos? don't you have like employees or anything? i mean you would be a pretty cool boss haha.

  5. Wow that helps, I thought KYB supplies Honda for OE shocks, and what is that black thing in between the coils it almost looks like an air bag but Its not, I have an 05 ody and mine are orange. Thanks, great vid

  6. Eric, please make a "how-to" video on engine mount inspection and repair. There aren't any good videos that address both issues! Thanks 🙂

  7. Eric,
    I have a 2hp 40 litre air compressor and impact ratchet.
    Problem is it's pretty gutless. Is 40 litres too small to effectively drive the ratchet?
    Your advice would be much appreciated,

  8. Good video. Maybe I'm the only one who noticed, but when Eric was jacking up the van, (fast motion) I happened to look over to the right, and noticed the Elvis clock legs going and got a giggle out of it! lol

  9. Hi Eric, I noticed you use impact tools on these jobs as you mentioned. Do you recommend Mac impact sockets or Snap on impact sockets? I know Snap On has a lifetime warranty but which brand do you use? Which brand is the best investment that will last a long time? Thanks, Marc

  10. How long do suspension parts normally last on a minivan? I have a 2011 Kia Sedona with 55,000 miles and it is getting noisy/bouncy.
