yeah the stores should have a couple of different types ( price may increase a LITTLE bit for the better ones) but i think i paid like 30 for mine a while back and havent had any problems with them at all.

I ended up paying about 60 each for some lifetime warrantied units from Monroe.

Anyone aware if aftermarkets are available for a G2 Coupe?

Last I checked I had to order a factory replacement for $70.

Check my previous post...

I got them from Monroe...with lifetime warranty, for $60 each. A bit more than Pep Boys, but cheaper than the dealer, and the warranty sold me.

I'm pretty sure sedan struts are different from coupes. Thats why I'm wondering if they developed an aftermarket replacement for the coupe. The last I checked Acura of Augusta only wanted approx $70 each. $60 for aftermarket is rather expensive.

A few yrs ago I went in search of hood struts for my 92 Cpe. Initially ordered a set of Monroes. They used adapters at both ends, which was not acceptable. Finally ordered from A&H for around $70 ea. Check Acura of Augusta (1-800-736-6818) for the lowest price. The OEM struts list for over $90 ea. Not inexpensive, but they fit and can be installed in under 10 min. Besides, how often will they require replacement?
