Your options are:
-Konis...about $160 each, and you don't get an entire strut, you have to cut the inside out of your old ones and stick in the Koni cartridge. They are adjustable.

-Tokico...about $120 each, non-adjustable, stiffer than stock. Complete strut, fits in without a prob they say.

-KYB...about $65 each, non-adjustable, about the same as stock. Complete strut, fits in without a problem I know because I have them.

-Gabriel Auto-Adjust struts from AutoZONE. These replace your stock auto-adjust struts. I don't know anyone who has them or how good they are. They ARE gauranteed for life, but convincing the AutoZONE people that you need a free replacement (proving it to them) every time they wear out may get old.

-Put in 2nd generation struts. It has been said that 2nd gen. struts and springs will fit on the front, and in the rear also if you shave 1/16" off your rear spindle. You have to use both the 2nd gen. struts and springs though, and it will lower the car about an inch. This opens your options up because if you went this route you could use Tokico Illumina adjustables.

I would be more inclined to buy something from Carparts.com if they would've gotten my Pacesetter shifter to me already. I've been waiting for a month or more. Maybe it is Pacesetter's fault though I don't know.

Yeah I think there was a rush to buy Pacesetter shifters when Carparts.com lowered the price to $65 or whatever it was from around $120. I don't think Pacesetter actually had enough of them on hand and now they have to make more and that's what's slowing the process down. Carparts.com probably only lowered the price becuase there weren't that many left. I used a coupon too so it was still less than $65 after shipping was added.
