Advanceautoparts.com has the reflex fronts and Reflex non-ELC'* still listed on their site. I have a pair of the fronts, (931822) on order, they are saying a 2 weeek delivery time. I will let everyone know what shows up, Reflexes or Sensatracks.

My dad had full set of Reflexes on his 1996 Park Ave, he bought the set in the fall of 2004 and had them installed in the spring of 2005. They are GREAT, I just wish I could have gotten them off the car before he sold it 3 weeks ago, they only had 2,000mi on them. Damn it!

Wish you luck, however, just because they show availability on their website, it does not mean the have them. I had your same experience with 4 different outfits and they said the delivery delay is because they order the struts from Monroe. They never got them and I ended buying the rear struts from KennG.

So much for options...

I'm going to have to look into replacing mine this year. With all the extra use my car got at SEBF this weekend, I noticed more slop than normal. Probably needs new ends links too, but I need to get under there and take a good look at everything.

Its pretty easy to do guy... easy to adapt to rear air struts too if you don't have them... Roughly $74 per air strut for the rear and $5 for the line kit to adapt... And I think the Monroes for the front were in the $65-$70 range... Energy suspension endlinks were about $25 front and rear... All of them were worth every penny

When I placed the order they said they were comming out of their warehouse in AZ. Like I said, we'll see what shows up. If they are sensatracks I will take them back and just get gas matics as sensatracks are junk.

I have the Monroe Matic Plus struts on the front and rear... I just can't say good enough about these... After well over 2 years they are as good as new and have not failed with my abuse and bumpy roads like the Gabrielles did...

If you do get the Reflex, I'd like all of the info Possible so that I may be able to get them as well..

Let us know what shows up..

Ive got gas matics on the back with the ELC, and KYBs in the front. The KYBs are HORRORABLE! The front of the car floats and bounces, I cant even take it down back roads. The KYBs feel worse with 6k on them than the stockers with 112k. Wish I kept the stocks on there, but the rears had an air bladder leak, so I just changed them all. I wish I went gas matic or reflex all around when they were all still available.

I'll keep you posted.

That'* old stock for non-ELC Reflexes and Fronts.

You will NOT find ELC rears in Reflex.
