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!

Should we see if he can do a group buy?
I'm in for a set on the rear liftgate.
I would be interested in a group buy
+3 on a group buy. my hoodies are shot and the tails are tempermental.
Im pretty sure he (strutwise) has a warranty on them too.
Count me in. I need the hood.
Suddenly I think I'm ready to leave your island!
The hatch struts can be had at your local NAPA. 819-6245 should be around $20 ea.

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.
