    Try a different dealer. I just bought mine in December.

    It's a wheelbase thing, you wouldn't understand.

    here's where I got mine: They were about $20 with shipping. If they've been discontinued, mike will know which ones interchange.

    Just bought mine two weeks ago. They didn't mention anything about them being out of production. I think it was like $12.00 with tax. E5TZ-18183A, that's what I get for being Ferd Parts Guy (long time ago), I can't forget that part-number.

    I also got a pair about 2 weeks ago. No problems, though I did have to pay up front. About $30 for the pair IIRC...

    USE THE PART NUMBER AND NOT THE APPLICATION. For some reason the shock tower article lists the wrong application. The E5 number is the one you want and is still available.
