Clair Parts Express sold one to me for (I'm almost positive) under 
$70; list price was $71?  I'll have to dig out the invoice.
   It was special order (almost everything is) but I picked it up the 
morning after I ordered it (you have to place the order before 11am 
for it to come in the next morning).  Same was true for the upper 
strut bushing.

Ken- make sure you get the two copper crush washers as well, they 
MUST be replaced.  BTDT, you can't reuse crush washers on fuel lines, 
it just doesn't work.  Best way to change the line is to undo the top 
banjo, remove the entire FPR and line together (two bolts, requires a 
socket+ratchet) and undo the line from the FPR.

Getting the new hose assembly up through the IM while on the FPR is a 
little tricky, but not impossible.  I found it easiest to adjust the 
hose position on the FPR with it out of the IM; it won't line up 
properly with the fuel rail unless it is positioned just so.  Not 
loosing the washers is also a little tricky when reinstalling the 
banjo bolt; thread the bolt through the fitting and hold the washers 
with a finger- and don't let go of them until you're positive the 
bolt is threaded into the fuel rail :-)

Oh, and sorry for not answering earlier emails, Ken- I wasn't around 
most of the day.
