I must correct myself. Turns out for the "infinitysource" eBay price
you get two struts. That same price from the DeLorean vendors gets you
only one strut, or less. My mistake.

Still, personally I would only buy my gas struts from the vendors
because I know the struts I receive from them will be the correct
pressure for their intended use. A previous owner of my D put a pair
of gas struts in my luggage compartment that fit, but were much too
strong. Since this was my first D, I assumed the struts were simply
very new, and that's why it took some much effort to close the hood. I
thought it was normal 'till Dan Botkin looked at the car and told me
that the struts I had in place had much too much pressure, and I was
risking bending my hood! As a matter of fact the use of the incorrect
struts has already exaggerated the portion of my "X" in the stainless
steel directly above where the strut mounts. Is getting no name struts
for half the cost worth risking a $1K+ hood? NO!!

This is my DeLorean, my pride-n-joy. It the last place I'm looking to
cut corners.
