Anybody out there know of a source? I have bought several sets of Monroe 71805 for various sprints over the years, but cant seem to find anyone that carries them. Have not found any other brands that have any spec’d….Any suggestions? Thanks

Rockauto out as well…..I had a contact with them to let me know when in stock, but after a month still nothing. An alt I knew of was KYB232020, I found a pair of those on ebay last night for about the same price.

Wellll….did not pan out. Appears lousy seller on ebay only advertised he had them. He actually did not even have 1 of them, took me over 2 weeks just to get my $ Back. Finally called customer support for MONROE. “ MONROE has discontinued all suspension components for Chevrolet Sprints 85-88″
I have not had any luck with finding any KYB or Gabriel either.

Monroe does have a nice spec spreadsheet with ALL struts offered and I have found a few that are near identical in overall specs, but have not ordered one to see for sure can it be made to work. Biggest difference I see is the spring seat area may have to be carved down to make it work with the tiny OEM springs. When I get one of mine off and can measure all things will update this with whatever I find.

Should anyone else out there have any advise, please also post here.
