My 88 Celica GT needs rear struts, <b>bad</b>. It's hard to find them new, Canadian Tire lists two different brands for my car, one is 84, other is 145. None in stock, and probably won't be able to get them for a while because they're on backorder or something. Carquest has 2, but they want $105 a piece. That's a bit much for me, so I called a junkyard. They want $75 a piece for the complete assembly, that's the spring and all. After tax, two used struts would cost me about 165 bucks! That's a lot for used parts. I was looking on eBay, and I found an auction for 2 Gabriel VST that would fit my Celica. $40 US, and 30 US for shipping. All together, that would cost me roughly $95 Canadian. $95 for two brand new Gabriel's, sounds better than paying $160 for 2 used ones, right? Anyway, I'm just wondering what these struts ride like. Can't seem to find a whole lot about them searching through Google.
