Depending on age, hose can be much harder to remove than suggested by Anthony. Sometimes it is easier to make a relief cut with a utility knife/box cutter. Cut axially with a fresh blade. Make sure...

If you were able to collect old oil in a 3 qt container you have a problem. I suggest you check oil level every 500 miles until you have confidence you are not burning/losing too much oil.

My wife opted for a 2010 MDX to replace her 99 RX which she absolutely loved. A 95 year old man got "confused" and t-boned and totaled her parked car. The newer RX was noticeably more cramped with a...

I never did an alignment after replacing struts and never had a problem with tire wear. If you are concerned check the camber before/after.

I would not rule out leaky HG based on how clean the pistons appeared. I assume your oil looks ok?

This vehicle does not have shocks. Driving slowly over uneven payment sounds like sway bar end links.

I was talking about sway bar end links, not sway bar bushings. End links fail much more often than bushings although bushings could be bad as you suggest.

Are you sure struts are causing the noise? Could be the mounts or the sway bar end links. End links will rattle and mounts will thump.

Toyota OEM or Akebono ProAct. Do your research and you will find nothing but rave reviews for Akebono. Stay away from B/A as they are nothing but re-boxers. You may get OEM and you may get crap.

Make sure you service (clean & lube) caliper slide pins and replace brake fluid if it is more than 2-3 years old. Don't just do a "pad slap". You will not be happy with the results.
