Question AC Delco Struts are still available....I think

I've read multiple times on this forum that the AC Delco struts for ELC/CCR are no longer available but I've found them at RockAuto.com?? What am I missing? They are $80 each.

It will list them as being a direct replacement. What you will find is that the replacements don't have any CCR built into them. The replacement is a standard strut with instructions that should tell you how to unhook the connector on the module under the seat.

I had the same hopes at one time.

Sorry to have to let you down on that. I miss CCR struts.

Default Just following up

Well, to no surprise, BillBoost was right. The ones I had selected were not really CCR but AC Delco did offer up some part numbers for ones that are. Unfortunately, they are sky high in price. $290 each front, $580 pair rear. I'm going Sensatrac I reckon.
