My other car, a 1990 Accord EX, is desperately in need of some new shocks or springs. I was going to take a ride down to Sears but I just heard a horror story from a co-worker re: Sears mechanics. Other options are places like Meineke, Midas, etc. I looked at Tirerack, but I doubt I'll be throwing Koni or Billsteins on it. Does anyone have any recommendations or shops/brands to avoid? I'm looking for something fairly inexpensive that will provide a firm, but not harsh ride.
