Thats always right however if you can not find matched pairs you go with whats available as long as its in the back lol
New rear shocks are ONLY available from Europe, order them there via Burton Power or Ebay.uk

One of the pair of front struts I purchased for my Escort a couple years ago was defective, so I only changed the failed one on the car. Annoying, but the car seems to drive perfectly well.
I've had ride height issues with mixed struts, luckily the rears are only shocks so they have little affect on ride height but it sucks when one corner is stiffer/softer than the other :/

I bought "Motorcraft" brand, thinking they would be most similar to originals, but "brands" don't mean too much nowadays. I am in Canada and ordered the struts from Rockauto on "wholesaler closeout", delivered to my friend just over the border in the US.
So by the time I got them and discovered that one was faulty, it was too late to return. Plus I suppose I'd have to go back over the border to return them.
