any help is appreciated
thanks in advance!
Rear struts are starting to leak on my 2000 RL as well (I'm thinking the cold temps and bad roads here in MI are contributing). I would suggest holding off on the tires and alignment until after the struts have been replaced. The bad struts (if they're truly shot) are going to screw up your alignment and wear your tires prematurely.
I'm going to get mine done at the dealer--I want OEM struts with Acura trained service. When it comes time to sell, it will help to have a book full of dealer receipts.
