Default 1999 SSEi CCR replacement of rear shocks/struts

Looking to find some replacement parts to keep my CCR suspension, at least I think thats what you call it. I have the perform and tour option in the console. Please advise, I can't seem to find the parts I need. Seems all after market parts are made to replace the CCR system. Is it a poor design, or outdated, my system on my 1999 SSEi has not work right from the time I bought it, so I do not know if spending the extra money when and if I do find the parts? is it worth it, what can I expect to gain using the buttons on my console vs just replacing with monroe reflex shocks?

Can't find replacement CCR struts. The system was too problematic and was discontinued.

Go with the Monroes

I had my fronts replaced under warranty by a dealer. IMO they aren't what they are cracked up to be. When I do my rears,I'm going to go Monroe all the way around

BTW......
Thanks for the compliment

or, find a low mileage donor, and grab the struts. That is what I did.
