I am preparing to pull the front cv shafts and replace the boots. While in there, I decided to change the struts, springs, mounts, etc. I've found the strut inserts and amounts but still need to find the springs.

Any suggestions?

my first question would be where did you find the struts and mounts?
are you sure they are correct? there are people on this forum who have been looking for years for them....

I found the struts on ebay (suggested in another thread). We'll see if they actually fit. For $24 a pair it was worth a shot.

I got lucky on the strut mounts and bushings. They were actually on the shelf at a local hole in the wall auto parts store (the sign on the front says 'Auto Parts'). The part boxes literally fell apart.
