I like my vehicles to have a smooth ride. I was wondering if anyone has replaced their struts on the Odyssey with another brand that results in a super smooth ride? any suggestions ?

Re: 02 suspension A tech guy with Honda Corp in LA. told me the 02's have heavier springs and smaller swaybar than the 01's. He also told me that no ones marketing aftermarket shocks yet.

Trying to select shocks for a better (read softer)ride is a tricky business. The manufacturer has put a lot of time into achieving a good compromise between ride and handling and to mess with it, especially to soften the ride, can result in a really poor handling vehicle. You must remember that the Odyssey is a pretty heavy vehicle and you can easily come up with the old "at sea" ride of the big cars of the 50s and 60s and some really sloppy handling. Just my two cents on the subject......
