It really is just not worth putting used shock on a car. Say someone sells you used ones for $10 each, for another $5 to $10 you can get them brand new. Trust me, I am all for saving a buck or 2 on stuff for my Fiero, but there is just no reason to when purchasing shocks.

As a final note, I would wait to put the shocks on until the car leaves Michigan, otherwise you will just ruin your new shocks. I swear Detroit has just about the worst roads of anywhere I have ever been, and I have been through around 30 states.

And a few years ago (with rebates) I paid $40 for Monroe Sensa-Trac shocks and struts... for all of them... including shipping.

I have to agree with what's already been stated - It's hardly worthwhile to buy used shocks/struts.

If you are looking for local pick-up, then call the Oreilly auto parts store there. Looks like the one in oak park can probably get some Monroe shocks next day for $25 each.

That's pretty much any road here in Michigan.

thanks I checked there and I find that a little expensive, don't forget I have to take into consideration of the exchange rate...
