Also, if I replace both - I'm thinking I should prob go with aftermarkets - something that will last "forever" but also provide the same or better ride quality. What are my top options in that regard?

Thanks in advance!

Also, for those of you that are novices like me - check out this video for a clear understanding of this discussion: http://www.bmpdesign.com/technical/s...eplacement.php
My part time mechanic, who's also a good personal friend, replaced mine at all four corners about a year ago. Not all were shot, but he insisted that they must be done in pairs. Then he aligned front and rear.

Also - just wondering if you ride a bike and might know about good rental places. We're coming out in September and the Honda dealer where I've rented before, in Corte Madera, is out of business.
