I cannot find anywhere that will sell front shock absorbers for the 1.6 Sport.
I have bought Bergh and Monroes for the hatchback and they don't fit, the pinch bolt holes are too narrow, 14mm instead of 17mm.

Which brand and or where can I buy shock absorbers for the front suspension on a 2005 Honda Civic Sport 1.6i, EP2?

thanks

I have now discovered that the later EP2 1.6i Sport uses the same front shocks as the EP3 Type-R, but with EP2 springs as the engine is not as heavy as in the R. The Type R shocks have the 16mm bolt holes in them.
