Online sites to buy parts?

What are some good websites that are trusting to buy car parts? I want to get a strut bar for my honda prelude 2001.

It sometimes helps to go the manufacturers web page, and see who their authorized dealers are.... for instance, if you want an exedy clutch.. go to exedy global's website, and then look at their list of preferred dealers... there ya go, doesn't get much safer than that =P

ebay is a good start, searching PreludeZone is another

The rear strut bar installs the same way as the front: on the shock towers...lift up the carpet in the trunk and you'll see them just as they are in the front.

You will have to a hole on each side big enough for the bar to fit through. It'll look good if you do it right...

try SummitRacing.com and be careful with ebay. It will either get you good parts for cheap or cheap parts for a helluvalotta money. Take it from me, when using Ebay, stay in constant contact with your seller, or buyer.


EDIT!!! By the way, WickedLude01 has front and rear DC tower bars for sale...and DC doesn't make them anymore, check 'em out YO!
