While there might be other parts that fit, they probably do not have the same
calibration. Didn't someone report that these other dampers didn't work as well?
I cut my old one apart and there is an adjustment inside it for the damping
rate. That is probably the only difference between the two - but it is all the
The adjustment is fixed, and cannot be changed.

I don't remember what I paid for mine but I most likely got it at
importpartsspec.com (or possibly Bow Wow) and I don't remember being too shocked
:-) at the price.

And - after I put my new one on, my car tracks better than it used to. It really
made a big difference for rutted Idaho roads.
