FYI: Strut rod pricing

587 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Dees67
It looks like there are two price-points for replacement strut rods. New/NOS are running
about $52 while repros are running about $20. NPD has t new ones,
Laurel Mountain has the repros and Mustangs Unlimited has both.

Any opinions on repro vs. NOS from a functionality standpoint? Originality is
not an issue for me on this job.

NOS is a better quality part. I've ordered the repros before and NOS is better IMO.

If you are referring to the repro '69 strut rods we stopped carrying them years ago. Long story, but we weren't happy with the quality.

That's kind of what I thought. I don't think I want to take chances with light
duty repro parts on something like this. If the factory rods can get bent
I can only imagine what would happen with repros. It's off to the NPD catalog
for me!
