I need help locating a pair of rear struts/shock absorbers for my 87 escort wagon gl. The car currently rubs the driver rear tire when driving over bumps. I've looked everywhere including eBay and asked local shops for help and nothing can be found. It seems that this part has been discontinued.

Question to the community, if anyone has tackled this problem with using rear struts/shock absorbers from another car or escort year, can you please let me know the year and model and if possible the part number. I'm also open to aftermarket parts.

The wheels are 15s. They came with the car. At the moment, I am going to roll the fenders and adjust the alignment, hopefully that solves the problem. But still, I will like to replace the rear struts/shock absorbers if possible.

Thank you in advance for all the help/input and I am happy to provide more info.

The tire hits the fender? Have you considered 15 in GT wheels from that era? The offset appears to be significant. The handling will likely be better with the correct offset wheel on the front as well
