yup I got a pair of struts at Pep Boys. there was a minor problem (unless I put the struts on upside down). I had to loose the top screw in both rear side panels and push it back a bit for the socket of the strut to fit firmly.
dobber, LB is a long way down from Studio City. thanks anyway. I'll try and check them out on the next visit to my sis in LBC. her husband is a Jeep fanatic as well.
I finally located the OffRoad Unlimited store in Burbank, on the same street but different building, but I've decided that it's not the one I will be going to on a frequent basis.
has anyone been up at the western end of Mulholland Road in the Santa Monica Mtns? I finally cranked my Jeep into 4x mode and did a lil ridin'. not much, but it's a nice quarter of a mile of dirt.
