Where were you 2 months ago when I bought sensatracs? The part number is correct as the 931799 rears are the ones without the ELC stuff. How much are a set of those going to cost someone Kenn?

And I use nothing But Monroe here
Thank you very much for answering my question. With all the hub-bub about the NAPA struts everyone seemed to have almost forgot the poor newbie who started the thread...

To throw in my .2, pep boys will give you the reflex and install them for a total of around 500.00$, seems high for shaddy *** mechanics. Gonna check out NTB pretty soon since they carry these parts as well

gmpartsdirect.com, struts for the STS are $750 a piece through the dealer, through gmpartsdirect.com they are $368, big difference. If I understand it right the SSEi is similar or the same to the STS

Depends on the year of your car, and whether the STS has ELC or not. Can you put your year and model in your sig?

Incorrect. The STS goes way back to the early 90'*.
