Default '99 Solara Struts

With 127,000 km on my 1999 Solara its time to replace the struts, does
anyone know of a reasonable place to purchase either KYB's or Tokico's
in Canada? By reasonable I mean less than 180 Cdn$ for a single front
strut.

Both KYB GR2's and Tokico's for this car are non-adjustable, anyone with
experience with these replacements versus original equipment?

There's a place in Montreal that sold me MacPherson rear struts for my
Camry for about $120 CDN a piece. Not sure if they sell KYB or Tokico
(though I imagine they must).

The shop's name is Mechanick Pièces d'Auto. They supply garages, so
you don't have to worry about getting shoddy parts. Their number is
(514) 842-5818.

If you are willing to purchase online try www.tirerack.com,
www.rockauto.com, or www.shockwarehouse.com.

KYBs (Keep Your Bilsteins) are budget basement struts and are priced
accordingly. I'll stay away from these. But they are ok struts for oem
and may actually come with your car. Tokico was popular before the cost
cutting, it's a good strut if you can find one near you. Don't know if
Bilsteins aftermarkets are available for your model, if so they aren't
that much more in general. Bilsteins are great.
