Alright, so I started tearing it apart, and took some pictures which I'll get up as soon as I get my USB cable from my girlfriend...

The strut bar is bent.. I think that might be the only problem.. Everything else looks ok... I think I'm going to replace the struts and go from there.. Any idea where I can get these? Thanks again guys

How about these?

We use strut inserts, so you don't actually change the whole housing.  You would need to source the strut tube/knuckle assembly, as that is how they are built on our cars.  Take a look in the handling section of this forum to get an idea how the OEM stuff works, its kinda hard to explain.

So will those ones I linked work? I've looked through some posts, etc, and checked through the Chilton manual.... If those don't work, is the only part that I need the strut insert?
