Oh man have fun with thoes rear shocks, they are a pain to change. I hate doing them. Front struts are easy.

Sachs from Rock.313855 front left and 313854 front right. I would go with matching Sachs on the rear also. Great shocks and struts.

Bilsteins are always a good bet.

That's the same car as the 03-08 Fusion/Mazda 6. Note that the Sachs struts Trav linked to are listed as fitting the 03-08 6 and 06-12 Fusion. Therefore, you can get Bilstein shocks/struts for the older Fusion/6 smile

Part numbers for the front struts
24-102568 Left Front
24-102575 Right Front

You can get the set of 4 on shox.com for $469

Yes, they will fit your 2010 Fusion. Confirmed by at least two threads on Fusion forums thumbsup
