[ROVERNET - UK] Sd-1 front struts (dampers)

I wonder if any Rovernetters in North America (or particularly
Canada) have a usable pair of front Macpherson struts for a 1980
SD-1. The ones on my son's car are really, really bad, to the point
where even a small bump sets off some pretty fierce oscillations.
We could get a new pair from Rimmer Bros. but what with the
shipping and customs charges, we figure it would cost more than
the car is worth. If some kind soul has a set off a parts car, we'd be
happy to to take them off your hands for a reasonable figure.
I give my son a lot of credit for wanting to run his SD-1 as a daily
driver all year round; it's been on the road for about a year and a
half now, and considering he paid only $500 for it (although we've
probably put another $2000 into it) it's still been a pretty good deal.
But I fear unless we can find a set of struts, it may be the end of the
line for the Black Beast....
All help, suggestions, etc, most gratefully appreciated!
