Rear shock absorber

Rear shock absorbers for CIVIC must be bought and replaced in pairs.

Mister-Auto offers you shock absorbers from top brands including like Kyb, Monroe or Sachs. Remember to add two to your shopping basket though. Why do I have to replace my shocks in pairs?
To avoid unbalancing your CIVIC. If one shock absorber is failing, there's a big chance its neighbour to be in a similar state.
Worn shock absorbers at the rear are dangerous because they cause the deterioration of the vehicle's adherence to the ground. Cornering and braking can also become tricky in a car with worn shock absorbers, especially in bad weather conditions. Due to the lessened adherence to the ground, it will be more difficult to remain in control over the vehicle. You can see if your rear shock absorbers are worn by parking your car on a flat surface. An oil leak or strange and irregular wear of the tyres is a crucial indication of the state of the shock absorbers as well.

By pressing the boot of your Honda $serie and then letting go, you can determine whether it is time to replace your CIVIC shocks. If the vehicle rebounds (seems to bounce up and down) you have a strong indicator that the rear shock absorbers of your CIVIC need to be replaced. But to avoid danger due to failing shock absorbers, it is best to check your shock absorbers every 12 500 miles and to replace them about every 49 700 to 62 100 miles.

To determine which rear shock absorber references are suitable for your CIVIC, we recommend you select the engine type of your Honda $serie in the roll down menu or just enter your registration number.
