The PCV valve is located on a breather on the intake manifold side of the block, under the intake manifold. You have to remove the manifold to access it. If you do decide to do this, get the PCV valve hose as well to replace while you are there as they like to fail.
As far as the struts you really just have to call around. The struts from the 00 are different than the 08. Its really not that hard to disassemble the struts with a little spring compressor and just do it yourself.
