<non-sponsor removed> carries all three: Firebird, Trans Am, and Convertible. $30 / pair for Trans Am. I just ordered trunk shocks for my GTO from them after reading many good things about them on another forum. (They also have a bunch of other cool replacement parts I now want for the Goat). Option 2
<non-sponsor removed> carries several brands at different price points. The only ones I would recommend are AC Delco, which are roughly twice the cost of the ones from <non-sponsor removed>.
You could get Monroe brand from <non-sponsor removed> for a few bucks less than some others, but I don't recommend them. Last weekend I installed new hood shocks on both the GTO and the Maxima. The GTO got AC Delco, the Max got Monroe. Both purchased from <non-sponsor removed>. There is a very noticeable difference in their strengths. AC Delco holds firm and requires a little force when moving from the fully open position. Monroe is just as soft from fully open as from halfway closed.
If you want good replacements for a good price, go with Option 1. If you want really
good replacements and aren't worried about twice the price, go with Option 2.
