Default Reflex Shocks

Where can I find Reflex shocks , front and rear # 931822,931798? Everybody keeps telling me they have been superseded by Sensitrac. Any ideas?
Thanks

1992-1999 Bonneville'* have Struts in all 4 corners -no shocks.
I found the best price on Monroe Reflex struts at www.rockauto.com. take the part # and do a google search with Monroe (part #) and look. I believe I saw one place that was doing free shipping on them and they were reasonably priced -which really surprised me considering the weight and size of struts.

You've been talking to either NAPA or Autozone. The sensatrak'* are NOT the same strut nor superceded/superceding anything like the Reflex. Reflex is the top strut made.

Please take the time to read the text under the comparison table on that page. You are being duped, or the person that told you they were the same has no clue. I got the same runaround 6 months ago, which is why I created this page.

I've checked with Advance Auto and KOI which was referred from Monroe website. The website I read in this posting has some which I still need to verify but I have found them on other websites and they were superceded by sensitrat and they told me good luck on finding reflex

On RockAuto.com the front #931822 were $77.99 and rear #931798 were $95.79. I believe that is each. I priced them at Pep Boys and about $30 more each

Average prices are listed on my page. Click the link.

The prices posted above are right in line. Rock Auto charges shipping.
