Anyone know a good source for struts? My hood struts are dead and the tailgate struts aren't far behind on my 05 Magnum RT. I'm looking for a cheaper, mail order alternative than the dealer.

Mopar Supercenter is selling the front struts for $50 right now that includes the ball studs. Too, there's some link on these boards for a http://www.strutwise.com that apparently has good prices.
Thanks Rich. My front struts have been dead for a while now. Now the tailgate whacked me in the head last night and knocked some sense into me. I'll be giving strutwise a call and get some stainless steel units!

Hood Struts $13.32 each
Hatch Struts $17.47 each
Shipping to PA was $7.50 for everything. I only bought the hatch struts, but shipping is still $7.50 if you add a pair of the hood struts. It was the cheapest option for me. The original hatch struts lasted 5 years.
