Bill, try this email address. asales at austecxracing.com He handles Pedders 
suspension parts from Aussie land. He is very co-operative. helpful and 
reasonable. The struts have been recommended by a member of the Dutch SD1 
site. The recommender is Aussie. I have ordered a set but have not received 
them yet so I am unable to tell what quality they are. The price for 2 was 
175Usd plus 50 for shipping if you can wait for a container. That is by far 
the most reasonable I have found.
Hope this keeps the "black beast" on the road.
