I replaced my clamshell vents yesterday with billet aluminum ones. The original ones came out broken, so I want to get a new set to store. And my clamshell would not stay up. Where’s the best source? Thanks

I ordered from Tasca Ford. Lowest price I found at the time. Ed Lee did the same recently and said it took about a month to get them. I doubt any dealer will have them in stock, so it doesn't matter who you order from except for price. The replacements were stronger than OEM ever were. Clamshell opens by itself when I release the latches.

I don't see a way to edit posts. I meant only the struts above. IDK about vents.

Do you now see edit button on lower left of post? There was time limit attached to edits.

Yes. Edit and delete are there now. Were not there immediately after I posted.

I ordered some from Tasca Ford (www.tascaparts.com) yesterday.

Rear: P/N 5G7Z-63406A10-AA 30.48
Front: P/N 5G7Z-16C826-A 36.48

Got an oil filter too.

They have Ford GT parts but their "enter year/model" doesn't include the 05-06 Ford GT and doesn't recognize the VIN. I went to www.fordparts.com to get part numbers. The Tasca prices were enough lower than fordparts direct that the difference in price on one strut covered the shipping for the whole order from Tasca.
