Well, I installed the cheap replacement struts last night. These are
basically the same thing as what I had in there, cuz....
The previous owner had done the "conversion" that Jim @ PPI posted about a
while ago. Gabriel, I think, would cut the Konis apart and install their
cartridge, with a screw on cap, back in the Koni housing. Mine felt a
little wiggly, so I ordered these struts to check em out. They are
specified for a 1986 Lincoln Continental. They fit just fine. They are
better than the ones I had. I like em and they're cheap, but I ain't gonna
win an autocross with em. They ride nice, and have pretty good control
actually, but they're not real firm, like a Koni.
My preferred suspension setup is soft springs and shocks and big anti sway
bars, so I got what I wanted.
As Saul posted, they are available at PepBoys for about $40 each.
