i replaced the struts, mounts and rear shocks on my PT at 95000 miles, purchased tokico shocks and struts on e-bay for $215 included shipping, the strut mounts was purchased from NAPA at $49 a peice. if you have a spring compressor this job takes less than 2 hours for complete installation. from a scale of 1-10 this job a 3. just make sure the strut mount and bearing rotate correctly on the strut before installing, (check the haynes repair manual for proper rotation) or else the bearing will bind and cause a noise when turning.

"CAP" is short for Capital in letters. You typed in all Capital Letters, which in computer language is like SHOUTING
