RockAuto had em for about $18, so I ordered one from there already. I need to remember to check Amazon.com as well as Amazon.ca more often...

After shipping they came to about the same I think, so nothing lost here.
I ordered em last night anyway, so even if it was a bunch lower it wouldn't do me any good. Says they'll arrive Wednesday, so here's hoping all goes well with em.

Good. Hope you have good first experience!!

I got both OEM front struts for 160$ while here its 170$ each at the dealer. Worth it on high prices items.

Good stuff. You’ll enjoy them. They’re much better quality than the Motorcraft ones at the same price.

They just came in. Was a little worried cause they do say "Motorcraft", but they got the right product number on them (and they say "Original Equipment Replacement"). Looking forward to some non-streaky wipers.
Anything in particular I should be doing before installation?
