Hey guys, I am new to the site and looking for some help restoring my 1979 Plymouth Arrow.
34Pjb0p

It's in good shape other than a few spots of rust and a broken front strut on the driver's side; it ran very nicely when my dad and I started it up last summer. The only thing that is stopping me from progressing is that I cannot find front struts anywhere, I've had no luck with Mopar, McPherson struts, ACDelco and general internet searches..

Would anyone have any advice? I'm at a loss Confused

Are you saying the struts don't need to have coils? Because these are the ones it has now

Hi there: those struts are no longer available. you have to continuously check on e bay. I bought a set a few months ago for $60.00. How long you had this car. would you consider selling it. thanks, Luis.

thats the coil spring.. and are not included in the strut cartridge..

the strut contains several parts on most cars..

the strut body..

the strut /shock absorber on cars with removable absorbers..

the coil springs are available in pairs... and if not available there are coil spring manufacturers who can wind you a set..  contact eaton spring..


the upper strut mount.. its a bearing and pivot assembly..

sorry if i misunderstood your needs.  but coil springs can be replaced without replacing the strut insert .
