All were bought from RockAuto, mostly Moog parts.
Are you converting from air? If not, you have all the mounting hardware already
Yes, I'm converting from air. And I'm in Canada, so CDN is fine.

Found this in another thread. You can obviously change to what you want as needed. Do not forget to disable the air-compressor if you convert your suspension.

Front:

Sport shock: 48510-80131
Strut top (comes with rubber insulator and bump stop): 48680-50110
Big top washer: 48680-22050

Rear:

Sport shock: 48530-80141
rubber insulator for the spring: 48258-50020
Big rubber insulator: 48257-50020
Bump stop: 48341-50070
Strut top: 48755-50100
Big top washer: 48755-50110

I got the Tanabe NF210 lowering springs, Tanabe part # TNF088

Hello, will be having a shop perform a 4 corner strut replacement on my LS in the coming weeks. Has anyone had issues re-using their original mount hardware? The upper mount and insulator don't really seem to be a wearable item, may be in part to FL weather being gentle on the rubber. As of now, I'd just planned to buy the Monroe 72342 & 41 "OESpectrum" struts, just want to make sure I'm not missing something there. Thanks.

When i had my rear suspension replaced the factory mounts and insulators still looked new and they had 95k miles. Unless yours are making noise or have 150k miles on them id leave them be.
