Least expensive front struts?

Where can I find inexpensive replacement front struts?

There are a ton of options for the rear shocks, but I can't seem to find front struts for less than $80 a piece plus shipping.

Any help would be great.
Thanks.

X2 Ranchos are the best! you can get them from Amazon for $78 shipped, I highly recommend them.

Cheap is a bad idea.I have the OME struts and they are SWEET!Cheap suspension?Don't even consider it.The labor to swap them out makes buying the good parts worth it.Cheap struts won't last long on a KJ.

If it ain't broke'fix it 'til it is

So wait a sec... you state that you can't find struts for less than $80 plus shipping.

Then jsc & loneliberty suggest ranchos and provide you a link for $78 including shipping.

And then you complain that those are "hardly the least expensive"?

well then shoot, if you want cheap, I got my OEM ones Ill GIVE you just pay shipping, but it will have a bad ride, if you pony up and buy something good youll be much happier in the long run and they will last longer.

Suspension parts are the last parts you want to be cheap on, if you want cheap, then a jeep is not for you. get a Prius.

A prius, really? you couldn't come up with any other vehicle?


(FYI the Prius is very expensive to maintain. much more than any Jeep.)
