    You won't need the rear upper shock mount unless yours are shot, check them
    before replacing.

    I found a complete front "Easy Strut" kit on eBay for $189, that has everything
    already assembled, with the upper mount and bearing & cap. I have yet to
    install them.. I also have rear shocks, I need to put on as well...

    I'm providing another link to a kit, in case the OP doesn't want to use/trust EBay. You OK with that Mr. Slave?

    Quick Struts:

    Just examples of what I was referring to, fully assembled, no spring compressor needed.

    Mine are SAID to have a lifetime warranty, yeah, as long as they're in business I suppose.

    For yours for $109, can't go too wrong for two complete struts.

    just an FYI if the suspension is stock you will need a spring compressor to remove the old assembly unless you remove the ball joint, tie rod, and axle also axle nuts are torque to yield nuts and an alignment will most likely be needed to be done after an install if most all these components are removed
