LF E30 Strut Housings

As the title states, I'm looking for E30 strut housings. I'm not overly worried about condition as long as the parts are safe.

I'm hoping to get a spare set to ease the install (and reduce downtime on the car) when I do the front springs and shocks.

I believe I need the larger OD housing (51 mm??). Housings must have shock absorbers removed (I've already got a set with dampers seized in there)! Bearings, rotors, dust shields, etc. are not important - interested with or without.

Let me know what you've got.

awe, but all the fun of doing shock replacement is the one hour it takes to get each of the nuts off at the top of the strutt housing!! They've usually never been off before and they just want you to be the one to do it!!

If you don't find any in the next week or so, I may be parting out my car, I'll keep you in mind.
