Hello Scotty, first of all thank you for making great, entertaining videos about cars! I found your videos really helpful and funny. Anyway, I have a Honda CR-V bought in 2009 by my parents and handed over to me in 2013. I have no major problems with the car, but one thing I notice is that the wheels, especially the front pair, would often make rumbling, knocking sounds whenever I hit bumps and potholes with it. I drive other cars like Toyota Innova (a local model) and Toyota Harrier and they don't have this problem. At first I thought it might be something to do with the wheel diameter, but Toyota Harrier have similar wheels but it doesn't do that. I went to Honda service center to get it checked and the service guy mentioned something about the "arms" of the vehicle need to be replaced, and they shown to me what looks like some 30 cm-ish stick with two attachable ends, one having some rubbery parts on it. I don't really know what they are called. After replacing them, although I feel the car drives vaguely differently in a positive way, the rumbling and knocking sounds continues. What could go wrong?

So many things wear on those little SUVs, but often it's worn A frame bushings that require replacing the A frames and lower ball joints. See that a lot on those
