I'm not sure. My dad owns a repair shop, so he found a place where they were cheap. I don't know exactly where they came from.

all SSEi'* have the ELC function. when replacing rear struts the CCR is removed but you can keep the ELC

Is there a suspension difference between the SE and the SSEis?

yes the (most) SSE/SSEi have a FE2 suspension. the SE/SLE have a FE1 suspension with a softer spring rate. I believe the the struts are the same for the front

So, am I better off just getting Monroe'* all the way around, or mixing KYB fronts with Monroe rears?

It'* up to you if you want to keep the leveling system how it is. I think KYB'* all around would be stiffer, but you would lose the leveling system.

What are the advatages of the leveling system? Or is it just being able to select the stiffness that you want?
