Hi My name is Ron and this is my first post here. My wife drives a 2000 Odyssey with 205,000 miles...I just cant get her to part with it.
My problem is she complained that there is a clunking in the right rear and the van sways on curves. I pulled the rear tire and found the top shock mount is broken. It appears the frame has a piece welded on with a hole that the top of the shock bolts through. The hole itself is half gone(broke off).
I have not been able to find a diagram or a purchasable part to fix this online or at local stores. The dealership stated it was a one piece cross member and the part sells for approx. $350.00...plus installation.
has anyone encountered this before? I am having a cert. welder look at tomorrow morning and hopefully a piece can safely be welded on and drilled to mount the shock to.
Any ideas, suggestions, or past related problem?
