While swapping out the front sway bar i had to turn my wheel the other direction and while i was turning i heard a instant crunch...:crying: after looking around i seen the swaybar end link crushed the connector on the shock. Anyone know where to get the connector so i can repair it?

After calling the dealer only to be told i have to replace the whole strut for $700 i started looking online for the connector. I ended up finding what i believe to be the exact connector and ordered it from digi-key. Should have it in about a week based off their estimated timeframe.

In the event this helps someone in the future these are indeed the connectors on the magnaride strut. I was able to fix my strut for approximately $1.50 vs. A $700 strut replacement. I found the stress relief fitting on the end online as well but i can not find it in the USA. I was however able to straighten it up enough to reuse it. It is a clam shell design so it can be replaced at any time. Its called a protector cap part number 7806995.

I bought a few of them incase it happens again or i find some magnaride struts for dirt cheap due to a broken connector, lol.
