No, not too late at all. I ordered quantity 100 fronts and 100 rears (50 front sets and 50 rear sets). 100 was really the lowest number I could order with any kind of appreciable price break. I will update the thread as soon as they arrive!
In a "worst case scenario" I think you'll sell the 50 sets in 4 or 5 months. Especially as we roll into the driving season and FGT owners bring their cars out of hibernation. The cars are now 15 years old. Once their clam shell or the trunk lid comes crashing down on their head due to weak struts, they will indeed frantically order. :ROFLMAO:

Just a FYI on how struts are, mine were original. But they "decay" over such a long period of time that you don't notice it. When I replaced mine (both front and rear) instead of just barely holding up the front and no longer supporting the rear both would spring to the stop and the rear clamshell would then open totally on its own after I released the latches. New ones really do make a difference.

PS. I never did get an answer on the shelf life of unused struts and whether having a spare set is worthwhile or if they will simply deteriorate from compression whether in active use or not.

I would like a set of rears please. Where is the order form, where do I send the cheque? Before it closes itself on a spectator at a car show, in a light breeze.
