My 2012 EX-L is at 104,000 miles so I replaced the PCV Valve and Spark Plugs myself, and had the timing belt/water pump replacement done by the dealership. They noticed the "Left Front Axle Outer Boot is Leaking" and the left rear shock is starting to leak. I plan on replacing the OEM rear shocks with the KYBs and hope I don't run into the dreaded stuck bolt fiasco as I plan on using PB Blaster pretty liberally along with an impact wrench. I appreciate the numerous threads on the subject, but just wanted to add that in 2012 Service Manual, it says to use new bolts and nut when replacing the rear shocks. I haven't seen anyone mention that, and a few videos I have watched show those being reused with anti-seize. I am picking up new bolts/nuts from the dealership tomorrow.

Dumper lower bolt Use new bolt 64 N-m (6.5 kgf-m, 47 lbf-ft)
Damper upper bolt/nut Use new bolt/nut 44 N-m (4.5 kgf-m, 32 lbf-ft)
