Default racelands...

so my front driver side was all smashed up in an accident. i'm in the middle of rebuilding it and turns out the strut tube is bent. i called up raceland and they don't do individual parts [makes sense]. I'm hoping that i'm lucky enough to find someone who had something similar happen to them and just has a spare strut kicking around... i know this post is miscategorized but i don't expect someone to peruse the wtb section to see if they can off just one strut. thanks in advance for the help!

Raceland use to sell complete coil bodies minus the springs and collars for 75. Don't know why they won't now.

I saw a set of front struts from raceland a few days ago for I think around $200. They do not look perfect, but its better than buying a new set if you can't find any.

I bet those are blown. No helper springs or bumpstops. Junk.
