    Re: May Accord of the Month - 87roach

    hey all. ive been on here for a while and cant find much or get any replies.. maybe im asking in the wrong area. i have an 87 lxi hatch and was wondering if anyone had aftermarket sites so i can get an idea on where to start. Suspension mods and brake kits are in big concern as well as power mods. any help will be appreciated.!!
