    I just picked up a '92 Accord and it has H&R springs and some blue struts with no writing or anything on them. Anybody have any idea what they could be? The only blue ones that I know of are Tokico HP's and Bilsteins...

    Tokico blues are blue :) and so are some H&R's. I have seen other brands too, but can't think of any right off hand. I know some Sachs are blue too.

    Bilsteins are yellow or blue, but I don't think they sell honda apps here in the states.

    Bilstein sells OEM replacements and I believe a lighter sport model for Honda stateside, but I think their coilovers, and highend products are European retail only :( Sucks because I was looking into them when I was getting suspension and they aren't too bad here for the highend stuff, but I went with GCs w/ custom rates and Tokicos...should have gone Bilstein or KW.

    I'm gonna have to get under there and get a better look, I got a quick look before but I didn't see any stampings or labels or anything.

    by the way, aren't Tokico blues and hp's the same thing? :huh:

    Yes, blues is just a nickname.
