Wow! That'* a new one for me. Luckily it didn't cause you to lose control while driving. I had a set of rear strut assemblies from the 97 donor car that I think I gave to Boosty. I'll see if I can get ahold of him and point him to this thread.

I just talked to Boosty and I did not give them to him. Next place they could be is at the lot where I store my parts car. Oddly enough I was there today but did not trip over the assemblies so I'll have to make sure they're still there.

I called my buddy who rents the lot where the parts are/were. He seems to think they were taken to the junkyard along with the 97 shell. To be certain, I'll have to look tomorrow. Meanwhile, keep a close eye on that auction and check with JimmyFloyd. He'* also in NY and might have what you need.
