new car inspection said needed new sway links to resolve slight jiggle noise

Rock Auto Moog Problem Solver
$52 for pair delivered.
Remove need 6mm Allen and 17mm wrench.
These aren't for everyone as they require grease service every once in a while.
install is 18mm socket and 19mm open end yo hold shaft .
Then some grease and I had some rubber caps that don't fit right but on until I get something better

Yep. Mine wore out around 55K miles. Rattling heard in the front end when going down a bumpy road.

I think the rear ones are next, slight rattle in the rear when going over something like railroad tracks, just haven't had a chance to check them out.

Yeah I'm planning those too.
Next up for me is Coolant change. I'm debating to touch the hoses and thermostat too....or figure those can be done with 100k service.

No pictures but to keep my documentation up yo date....

Today did coolant drain. Both radiator and engine block. Block is 12mm and you need 1/4 ID hose to drain. Removing wheel makes it very easy .

Filled with Honda Type 2.

Christ almighty,
firstly, you know your fuckin maintenance...gonna assume you're a tech or were in your past life.
Secondly, damn right for loving the ZDX. I had one as a loaner long ago and although it's not for everyone, it's a
futuristic spaceship that you rarely ever see...cargo space is no worse than my vagon so technically it's practical
as hell for what it is.
I'll definitely be following your progress!

Judging by the condition of the 68 Chevelle and the large tool chest in the background, my guess a mechanical background or dedicated car guy like most on here. Irregardless, on the ZDX

I tease my buddy that has a 2017 Shelby GT350 is less rare than my ZDX.

Im a car guy that refuses to pay the stealer for anything I can do myself. An early purchase was a service manual set. Worth every penny.
And Im just a backyard mechanic at best. But I do enjoy the wrenching, had many hot rods, classics, Harleys, etc over time.
Lastly, Im OLD as dirt//

Gotcha...
well, if I keep going from the age I am now, I should be a good enough backyard mechanic myself.
Love your automotive choices...nicely done.

Today I paid to have the brake fluid flushed. Wanted them to look at the noise in the front suspension
i replaced front and rear sway and some noises went away but not all

Said the found a loose front left lower control arm.
And same wheel, the metal clips that holds brake pads was missing. Pads were flopping around.

Noise gone.
And check off my last maintenance item:
Brake fluid DONE

I was never happy with the yellow laminx on the fogs when lights were off.

​​​​​​So I removed it and bought some 2700k LED H11 fog bulbs from Xenon Depot. Hard to get s good picture with my phone when on but you get the idea
off

on

More maintenance:

New Honda Wiper Blades. Had some crap arms.
And I bought an extra set of rubber blades for next time.


Next up some Clear .040 LaminX to protect the fogs. I removed the Yellow film, added Yellow LEDs prior.



And I haven't installed this yet....need to consult the manual, but this b pillar piece was damaged when purchased.
