I think that most folks here would agree that you can't go wrong with the Monroe Sensa-Tracs. They are not the only option, but probably the most commonly used option.

Which is why we didn't bring them up...

If you were to find Reflexes, which would only be the case if some store had obsolete stock, there would be a whole bunch of us lining up to get them.

ok heres what i got...
i called Partsource, the guy said he didnt have the sensa-trac in stock (non of the stores including crappy tire do) But he did have good news for me....
He told me that he will call the company that makes/distributes them to see if they had any, he also said that if they didnt have any aswell that they could make them for me...good new...but it gets better, He also told me theres a possibility that they can make a set of Reflex to order also! (he said that he has had them done for a ford application before..so there was a good chance they could be done for me)

I'll be finding out on monday
