Replacement struts for rear coilovers

I'm trying to find a pair of replacement struts. I have H&R coilovers and my rear struts are blown.

I was under the impression you had to have the receipt. I'm not the original owner of them they came on the car.

if you know the rear spring rate I can find you an aftermarket off-the-shelf unit that will fit and have dampening that will match the spring.....anything in the 250-350lb spring rate range works VERY well with a 50/30 shock...you can get off-the-shelf 50/30 bilstein shocks for around $80/ea.

you can grab adjustable KYB's or Koni Yellow's on SummitRacing....

$72/ea for KYB's, $124/ea for Koni's

both should be very comparable to the H&R's
