Archived from groups: alt>autos>mitsubishi (more info?)

The time has finally come to replace all 4 struts on my 1991 3000GT SL and I
would very much appreciate input on where I can obtain OEM quality
replacements for a reasonable price. For the record, this vehicle is
equipped with the ECS (Electronically Controlled Suspension) module.

The local dealer wants $174 and $176 before sales taxes respectively for
the front and rear struts for this vehicle. I've done some searching and
found a few other Internet sources, but they too are pretty much all priced
higher than what I am prepared to pay. Has anyone determined the actual
manufacturer (someone told me they were made by Gabriel, another KBY) and
part number or found a more reasonably priced source? Thanks in advance for
your thoughts.

Bob

For the best advise and what others have done.

It's a great looking car so take the time to read thru and post your own
questions there.

Thanks Ed. FYI, I had already posted the same question there as well.
