http://www.jeepsareus.com/Merchant2/..._Code=Interior Theyre grand cherokee liftgate struts you get 2 at the link for $65, you can probably get them cheaper on ebay but at least at that link you know exactly what youre getting.

Ive heard of people getting them at autozone before for $20-30. Im not sure how good they are but if you go to the counter and tell them what you are looking for they should have them.

I should get around to replacing mine sometime theyre shot.....

I know the ZJ and WJ are different, but I just purchased a lift support strut for my
'02 WJ at AutoZone. It was $17, special-ordered.

I'll have to check on that, though. That sounds too cheap.

They haven't come yet, so I can't vouch for the quality. But they were cheap.

Yep, Auto Zone/Advance has them for $20/each on their website. $40 is still too much if you ask me
