Hi Derry. We had 20 owners order the front and rear sets awhile back. When we realized the rears were delayed, we refunded the cost of the rears and we went ahead and shipped the fronts. I also attempted to keep a list of all these folks. When the rear kits became available (Monday), I sent a Paypal invoice to this list of owners so they wouldn't have to go on-line and order. Most replied and we shipped out the rears to them. However, I think there are several cases when the PayPal invoice email is blocked as spam. The bottom line is that if you didn't receive an email invoice, please re-order. Alternatively, you can PM me you email and I can send an invoice.
Rears: About 40 pairs in-stock
Fronts: Expected in-stock on June 24
All of our inventory has a fresh-made date code of Feb 2020 or later.
Thanks for feedback, Chris and others. Note that the fronts are purely "plug and play". They're made better than the OEMs and they incorporate steel rather than plastic ball socket connectors. They are charged to the same psi as OEM. You'll be surprised how much you've missed the correct operation!
The rears have been trickier. Like the fronts, they incorporate steel ball socket connectors, replacing the OEM plastic connectors. The actual piston rod is fractionally larger/heavier-duty than the OEM rod at just over 8mm in diameter. (The lighter-duty front struts use a 6mm rod.) Anyway, no one in the gas strut industry combines a small-ish 8mm ball socket at the end of a stout 8mm dia heavy duty rod. The standard is a 10mm. As such, the rear kits that we are shipping incorporate a 10mm ball stud bracket to allow you to swap the OEM 8mm ball on the GT to a stronger 10mm ball. (The OEM ball is in a nutsert and un-threads quite easily and we re-use this same nutsert to attach the new 10mm ball.)
The net is that changing out the rears will take you a couple of minutes longer than the fronts and we'd recommend having a friend hold the clamshell as you facilitate the swap.
do yo have any chance o ship to Germany as well ?I have my 2006 GT fora few weeks now and the rear struts don’t work properly. Have to check the fronts again but I think they were ok. But as I will keep this baby for lifetime maybe I will stock a backup ....
Mr. Charger. Sure, we can ship to Germany. We have the rears in stock and expecting a replenishment of the front (and more rears!) this week. Please send me an email at email@example.com and we can work out the details!
Note for those on the "fence", I got the front and rear struts, and the fronts were so easy, I had no difficulty installing. The rears were a bit more difficult, only because I had a problem removing one of the mounting pieces, and once that was accomplished, it was no problem. So, if I can do it, with absolutely no mechanical skills what so ever, you can do it!!!
