Isn't it why it is called damper instead of strut? If you change shocks on a rear on atypical family car, you do not have to align it. Think of Honda dampers as rich man's shocks :-)

That is inconsequential. I would live with that leak all day long. If you want to see some leaks, come look at my 21 year old Jeep. It does some dripping, seeping, and the drips are always present. I just check the oil and keep her in the range

Valvoline conventional is one of the best conventionals IMO. Do you have the 2.4L GDI or the 2.0 Turbo? If you have the Turbo engine I would run Valvoline Synpower

While at Walmart yesterday I noticed that they had no Magnatec 0w20 but they did have black Edge 0w20. They had some that mentioned 'Titanium' and some that didn't. All was SN rated so I assume the 'Titanium' version is newer stock. Is this just mark

There are 290K miles on the van. The engine will be pulled to replace the engine mounts and oil pan. I'm having the plugs replaced, belt and a coil. Is there anything that you would recommend? Rear engine seal? Transmission seal? This job is $17

Wear metals are low, OE continues to impress me in real world use. Definitely a well blended and capable oil. It seems to be a great seller for Amsoil, and rightfully so IMO.

If you didn't measure ride height before and after to verify, I'd at least have it checked.

I would have to have a pretty substantial leak before I'd shell out $2000 for a repair. Even the link you posted, that is a VERY minor leak. Does the leak even hurt anything, or is it just the principle of it that would cause you to fix it.
