    1985 Accord struts ?????

    Where do you guys find parts ? I started the what I thought was simple task of ordering and replacing all springs and struts to restore original ride and stance, I found four new springs on eBay , not sure their right yet two are tapered at the top and two are just straight springs, found two new front strut mounts with bearings, bellows and bump stops and upper mounting kits for back but can't find rest of parts, don't want to use old back even if the old are reusable, any input would be helpful thanks, Really want to completely restore this car but starting to feel like I'm throwing money into a black hole Lol

    Did you try Rock Auto, or see if the Honda dealer can get them for you from Vintage Parts?

    Found most parts if their correct from Rockauto and EBay , Honda dealer just says discontinued on everything I ask for , power steering rack was leaking so I ordered re manufactured having installed this week, how important is it really that you use Honda power steering fluid ? Guy at the garage said on remanufactered racks they just use regular power steering fluid on everything, Don't want to do this twice over fluid
