2017 Honda Odyssey Rear Suspension Enhancement Recommendation


What I have: - 2017 Honda Odyssey - Reese 51156 Class III Custom-Fit Hitch with 2inch Square opening - CURT 18153 Basket-Style Cargo Carrier w/ curved folding shank When I put three pre/teen kids in the middle bench seat of the van and load the back of the van and carrier with gear, I end up with only about 4foot inches between the carrier back and the ground. We end up scraping the ground when going over speed bumps or going into/out of driveways which sounds like it could be dangerous. Looking for a solution that will allow me to continue to use the carrier as the kids get bigger. Not looking to put any more load on the carrier I think Ive only been putting about 200lbs of so on it - the picture is the mot common setup. Just need to raise it about 4-6 inches.


Expert Reply:

Best solution we have would be rear suspension enhancement for your 2017 Honda Odyssey. We have the Air Lift kit part # AL60815 which basically allows you to add air pressure to increase the suspension support as needed.

Or we have the Timbren kit part # THROD2 which is also a fit. This gives you one amount of suspension support that will work well but is not adjustable. Advantage is that you don't have to maintain air pressure or run any air lines.
