I'm sorry that I didn't post my problems with Import Motor earlier as Dan
had suggested, but I was involved in finding an alternate source and
canceling my credit card charge from Import Motor (as well as a little

I've already ordered some Koni's ($93.83 F, $70.54 R) from RD as David
Chagoya there had advised me (I WAS looking at the Boges).  By the way,
David C. also, after conferring with his suppliers, told me that Billstein
doesn't even make shocks for this car.  Yet that is what Import Motor was
supposedly sending me.

Your list's compilation of suppliers has also been a life-saver in finding
the upper strut bearings too.  The dealer in Santa Fe wanted $45.00 each,
with several days shipping, and Linda at Carlsen is getting them to me by
Friday at $17.50 ea.

Anyone having prob's with Import Motor should probably talk to Mr. Jim
Howell of the Canyon City CO. DA's office (719-275-0606).
