The fuel injector plastic caps (pintle?) are brittle and falling off. They need replacing along with the orings. Where can I find the plastic caps?

What front struts do you guys recommend?

This is the site for the cap replacement https://injector-rehab.com/shop/pintle-caps/

as as far as the o ring you would need to get is injector kit they come o ring can get at any part store. strut concern I recommend the KYB if you want quality and OEM ride and handling otherwise if you’re on budget Monroe’s will do ok keep in mind replace the strut boot since they tend to fall apart

Struts: KYB Excel-G's.

I sent their tech support a message a few months back about the difference between the 2000-2001 struts vs the 2002-2003 struts. Response:
The two shocks are dimensionally similar and they have the same mount components. The difference is that 341341 has a higher damping rate than 341271. Both struts will fit on both vehicles, but the consumer should be aware that using 341341 will result in a firmer ride on the older Maxima.
