    I bought my struts from Univair, shipped airfreight, picked up at the PDX freight terminal. That was the best price by far at the time. But it was more than 10 years ago - - -

    Last time I went to CLS for gas during the day, the ramp looked like the WalMart parking lot the day before Christmas! Went back at night, was all alone.
