Sorry to hear about your incident.
The shocks should be available because they are the same as used on FWD Coupes and 4000's.
If all else fails a used one will work just as well.
BTW I would replace both at the same time if you care about safety the next time....
I don't, so I actually collapsed both of mine for more Euro look.
