Hi everyone,

Looks like the '08 Accord needs front axles due to bearing noise. Anyone have recommendations on lifts for home use so I can get under the car safely? What do you use to get the car up high enough to do suspension work like this?

Quick Jack's. Allows service in the center of the vehicle too. Light enough to move around by yourself and can be stored upright against a wall.

They are a good home gamer solution.

Just put jack stands under the corners for added protection.

I am contemplating something like these. Its a low height 2 post that unbolts for storage and max usage of space.

This looks great but I'm unsure of the concrete floor I have. Maxjax says min 4 inches of 3000 psi concrete and posts located min 6 inches from any seams or inconsistencies in the floor.

If you have the room, the money and level concrete to work on, I would consider a 4 post lift with a castor kit so you can roll it around to get it out of the way or roll it out outside to work on something. they do not have to be anchored for use unlike a 2 post.

I bought a Moog complete knuckle assembly from Rockauto for our 2010 Accord. It comes with pressed in wheel bearing,hub, and ball joint. I used a floor jack for lifting the car and of course jack stand.
I looked on Utube on how to change it out. I believe I also bought a new sensor.

That would be the best all around. I do lack that kind of room though. In the coming years we plan on moving out of CT and up to either VT or NH for many reasons posted many times by others on this site. There, we will have that kind of room and we plan on a nice big shop appropriate for this kind of habit.
