lynx, which shipping option did you use? for two struts to saskatoon shipped, cost is $68.xx. Does that sound right to you?

sounds right.  I really can't remember what shipping I used, it was like a year and a hlaf ago.  I do remember that i bought 3 pairs of struts in different models and types before I found the one that I used.

Sorry resurrect an acient thread, but none of the parts links work any longer. Where is everyone finding these struts these days?  The OEM ones are quite  a bit more expensive than I want to pay for them at over $100 each.

I used these, still going strong 4 years later.  Just a bit of modification if I recall for mounting.

I ended up welding the top ball stud instead of cutting the bolt/nut.  Much cleaner and easier than trying to cut a nut/stud.

I've done the same thing Mike, I didn't like the threads and a nut hanging off the back side, plus it gives you a bit more clearance.
