I find it hard to believe that the ONLY replacements available(other than from DP) are Monroe Sensatracs or OE from the dealer(or quite possibly from GMPD). What makes these struts/shocks so unique that NO ONE wants to make 'em???!!!

I just ordered struts for my Riviera (same setup as the Bonneville exactly) and the only struts I could find too were either AC Delco, or the Monroe Sensatracs. I ordered the Monroe'* and I'll be getting them tomorrow, and installed next week. I wanted KYB, but they do not make struts for these cars. It is true, the only setups I could find were either ac delco, or monroe.

I did find a complete air ride setup at a site called strutmasters.com. I dont know how that would work on our cars. Let me know how you like the monroes when you get them on.I was thinking of using the with a set of DP 1inch lowering coils in the front and adjusting the air shocks in the back like it says on the web site.
