Review 1 of 11

Price Paid:  $135.00 from just suspention

Year / Model Reviewed:
 1967 camaro

Strengths:
My car handles great. Much improved at cornering. This stock suspension now feels very tight and smoother.

Weaknesses:
None yet- only had these on for 3 months.

Summary:
This was a 6 cylinder car. Now a small block with a bit of added extra h.p. It is also much more stable on the freeway. Great value for 105 after rebate for all 4.

Review 2 of 11

Price Paid:  $45.00 from Oriellys

Year / Model Reviewed:
1987 nissan

Strengths:
These shocks are the hottest thing since sliced bread. Had a new pair installed today made my 87 300zx ride like new, I remember a 260Z in 82 that had KYB's installed they lasted until car was sold in 95, I will never use anything other after market suspension products but KYB perfect fit for Nissan Z's

Weaknesses:
After installation you might notice a slight lift, that does change your mirror angle and view over dashboard. Lowering springs might be a good choice to keep same height

Summary:
I just happened to use KYB shocks/struts before and had success. I haven't tried the other highly rated shocks like Tokico, Koni, Bilsteins and gabriels to have a studied opinion. So me choosing KYB is staying with what I trust in

Review 3 of 11

Price Paid:  $95.00 from Autoparts Way

Year / Model Reviewed:
1998 Isuzu Rodeo

Strengths:
It’s a performance shock, just as advertised. What I really wanted was a good-performing-shock for ride and comfort. The shocks will handle anything and the harder you go, the better they become. In Alberta, Canada the original HWY 1 to Banff, the road is an amazing nicely paved ‘spaghetti-on-a-map’ which is awesome to drive. I did it in my in-laws Infinity G37-S which was fun. With my Isuzu (I was alone), I coaxed a Mercedes and an Audi to step aside and it was more fun that the G37.

Summary:
As these are for an SUV, I would not recommend them. These are a good shock, but not for an SUV application. For family driving (my present life style with two child car seats) performance is not the idea. Also, I’m about to change out all my suspension ball joints, which were aging, but I think the KYB gas adjusts did them in.

I’m switching to try the KYB G2R
