I have a warehouse in Eugene, OR that sells me Reflex'* for the price of the Sensatrak'*.

And a further note on this topic, the compressor may only be mechanically seized. Take it out of the car and remove the top metal cover. Lightly oil the piston rings and see if you can get it to move again. This improved the performance dramatically on my 93SSEi, and intend to do the same to my 95.

Wilwren, I tried to purchase the Reflex Struts from different sources in the internet, local parts stores and also parts warehouses. Everyone single source said they were told by Monroe they had discontinued the the part number applicable to our application.

To confirm their statement, I called the Monroe sales and technical departments separately; they also relayed to me the same information; the only available reflex struts are the ones on the shelves of parts warehouses and stores around the country. That they discontinued the part number and it is no longer manufactured.
