Excellent Deal on KYB SR4011 Strut Plus

Just placed an order for two KYB Strut Plus for $58 each on RockAuto. Is that a great deal or am I not looking at that right for a 2001 Taurus rear strut. Advanced Auto is almost three time that!! Total with shipping was under $140

Wholesaler closeout? That sounds brill. I got a pair of front quick struts for my bull from rockauto for CDN$247 including shipping & tax, while the local autoparts wanted around $500 for a pair...!

If at first you don't succeed, hit it wiv a 'ammer.
To fix a Ford, a lot of creative thinking is required.

No on the wholesaler closeout. I have been looking at these for a month and they usually are at $100 each. Maybe they are not going to carry them any more.

You can get some pretty good deals on that site, and it's well worth watching it for a bit before you buy because the prices can change by quite a bit sometimes, especially when there's a wholesaler closeout. I just got an a/c condenser and dryer/accumulator for CDN$137 total including shipping and tax, while the local auto shops wanted around CDN$140 just for the condenser

If at first you don't succeed, hit it wiv a 'ammer.

$58.79. Confirmed. I can't think of a reason not to grab them at that price, even though my car doesn't need them just yet...

The fronts are $69 a piece, so it's just for the rears, but that's still one hell of a deal.

It's a good deal. On Amazon the fronts are $80 and free shipping (with Prime).

LE: Dam**, you just made me spend $153 for my fronts (shipping included, used a 5% discount code)

I saw them on sale on Amazon and KYB Outlet (sligtly higher prices) so I assume that either KYB will change the design soon or... stop making them.
