Default Fuel injector replacement for '87

First time on this forum, hope I can pick your collective brains to help with an upcoming repair. I'm an original owner of a stock (OK, upgraded wheels, tires and stereo) '87 LXi with 172000 miles. The fuel injectors are leaking so I'm collecting info on replacing them.

I started with the parts department of the local dealer and almost passed out when they told me new injectors are $140 each (including o-rings and seals). I searched the web and found several distributors who could beat this price, but I don't know who's reliable and who's not. Any suggestions? Anything learned the hard way on past replacements that might help with mine?

Thanks!

leaking does not mean get new injectors. non working injectors means get new injectors. just run down to honda and get new seals.

That depends on if the injectors themselves are leaking or if the injector o-rings are leaking.

Thanks for the suggestion--didn't know you could buy just the seals. What's the normal life span for injectors? These are working, but all of them are leaking fuel from the lower seal.
