    Hey guys,

    If I remember correctly, there was a thread in this board about improving the ride of the 8-seater Gen 2 CRV. I can't seem to find it. Argh!

    Anyhow, for anyone who's tried or who's heard, perhaps you could give me some tips on how to improve the bumpy ride of the 'V'? Will we have to resort to changing the shocks and springs? Or is there a simpler (or cheaper) way to deal with this, if there is a way?

    Btw, these info are for a friend who just got his 'V' from his Dad.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, parang ganun nga ginawa nung nag-post ng thread dito nun. The 8-seater's springs were the thicker ones, I think. Pero hindi ba shocks ang pinapalitan kapag matagtag?

    I see. Thanks. Another poster from a different board pointed me in the direction of the hondaclubph site. Here are some useful links, just in case other Tsikot brethren need some info.

    Gen 2 CRV 8-seater owner here. I changed the rear springs last year, had it done at CJ Automotive (shop posted in the HCP link). Now the ride is acceptable.
