Complete Strut Assembly?

So i need to replace both Struts in the front, and for the life of me, can not find a single manufacturer that makes a complete Strut Assembly. I'll buy all the individual parts if i have to, but I'd rather save time, money, and giving myself a headache. Does anyone know if this part exists? And if so, where to get it?

I did my own last year. Rockauto has the best prices. Be sure to use the spring compressors carefully. You're worst obstacle will be removing the top nut off the strut assembly if your struts were as worn as mine. I wound up drilling the nut off... after that, reinstalling is a piece of cake.

I have pics somewhere in my hard drive. I can post once I find them.
