I'd say it's time to head to e-bay and Craigslist. Also check out www.searchtempest.com to check Craigslist nationwide, including Canada and Mexico.

Exactly what I needed. I'm replacing all of these things soon and wanted something higher quality / better than OEM without sacrificing ride quality.

What springs did you use with your KYBs?

I was running Eibach's lowering springs but the rears rusted through and broke in half. (That was a first for me). I replaced them and the struts with H&R lowering springs. I also replaced the front lower control arms and ball joints with MOOG's at the same time.
