If you are looking for new PRC shocks and struts the chance of finding new ones is virtually ZERO.

Occasionally Ebay will have listings for used ones.

I bought what was probably one of the last brand new set of PRC struts / shocks in existence back in 2003. Paid $500 for the set of 4, and I considered $500 to be a GREAT price. My guess if you could find new ones (new old stock) today they would be priced well over $2000 if not significantly more.

you can use replacement shocks from an 87-88 V6 / V8 car (not an 87/88 turbo coupe)

I would suggest going with SN95 shocks/struts. There are tons of good options out there, the only down side that you lose the ride control. The ride control is really cool but modern parts have much better technology in them and will perform better then the 35 year old units.
