JDM Honda Parts
Finding a good supplier when you’re trying to get some parts for your JDM Honda can be a tricky thing to do. This article will go over several important things you need to consider when purchasing parts for your Honda and provide examples of reputable suppliers.
First of all let’s talk about second hand or pre owned Honda parts. Thankfully Honda is one of the most reliable car manufacturers in the world. For example did you know that Honda have NEVER had a single VTEC engine returned to the factory due to defects? Not one. Ever. So it’s safe to say that Honda build quality parts –and recycling them by buying second hand is a great way to get a good deal on parts.
However you need to remember that there are many parts that should not be purchased second hand. These come in two categories. The first lot of Honda parts you should not buy second hand are parts that need a lot of time to install. Think about things like engine internals, if you are going to pay a mechanic to fit them – you might as well get new items just for peace of mind. You don’t want to find out 6 months down the line that your civic has stopped working because you saved $40 on your injectors by buying second hand!
The second type of parts you should not buy second hand is parts that are notoriously perishable or safety critical. So things like CV boots, radiator hosing, belts, gaskets – you get the idea. Generally these things are not expensive to buy new, and second hand is not the way to go. A huge one for this is exhaust systems and mufflers – they are probably the only parts that Honda makes that are terrible for durability. NEVER get them second hand, I have personally done this many times and had a huge amount of hassle getting them replaced and repaired again. The same with the safety critical parts – don’t bother getting second hand brake callipers, fuel pumps, steering racks etc. It’s just not worth the risk – unless they are reconditioned by a reputable company, these second hand parts are just too dangerous to risk.
So if you need to get a new item there are several good suppliers you can find. As with everything online is without the best place to find cheap jdm Honda parts. A great supplier that carries a huge amount of JDM parts is the auto parts warehouse. They offer free shipping on allot of items, and deliver nationwide.

There are other suppliers that are good too – but none that I am comfortable with recommending here, in my opinion it’s not worth going anywhere else than auto parts warehouse for your jdm Honda parts.
