Broken Coil Spring

I have a 1990 Prelude with a broken front coil spring. I have searched everywhere for both OEM, aftermarket (both discontinued) and used coil springs and am unable to it anywhere.
My question is, can I use a coil spring from another Honda like an accord? Thanks.

Re: Broken Coil Spring

You don't want to mix springs like that. You'll want to use both front Accord springs if they fit. I've read conflicting information as to whether or not they will even fit. If they do fit they'll have a different spring rate because the Accord is a heavier car.

Your best bet is to look for a 3rd gen spring on car-part.com. I know there are some on there because I just looked. It looks like there is a difference between front coil springs for carb'd and fuel injected 3rd gens, so you'll want to specify which when selecting the part you're looking for.
