Review 1 of 49

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
1997 Eclipse rs

Strengths:
Seems better than stock struts

Weaknesses:
Somewhat good for lowering

Summary:
I have an eclipse rs and when I bought it was already lowered but suspension in front was bad. I did not know much about suspension for performance so I bought eibach pro kit springs (1.2 drop) with two front kyb excel g (gr2) shocks. I was thrilled with how well the car was riding at speeds about 55 mph on side streets but when riding over deep crowns or dips in a road or doing about 70 on the freeway and hitting dips, the shocks give pretty easy. These are mainly meant for stock ride height. They have not went bad yet but when I get a gst, im def going with tokico illumina or koni shocks

Review 2 of 49

Price Paid:  $300.00 from AJUSA

Year / Model Reviewed:
2006 Honda OdYssey

Strengths:
Look like a decent product.

Weaknesses:
Front shocks way too soft. Lousy warranty.

Summary:
Installed new excel g on front and rear. After install tried the Bounce test and was very suprised to see how easy it was to move the front end of the van with little effort. Performed road test on sleeping police felt like used and not new shocks up front. The rears felt OK. I called KYB and they state these shock are 10% stiffer than OEM. NOT EVEN CLOSE. I purchase the honda Odyessy due to its sportier feel compared to Chrysler town and county, Toyota sienna. These shocks due not feel as stiff as OEM and I do not recommend them if you want to restore performance. Now I believe Monroe or Gabieral might have been a better choice. They are probably just as soft but they at least have life time warranty. KYB does not.

Review 3 of 49

Price Paid:  $181.00 from On line

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 Gr2

Strengths:
Firm ride. Excellent fit. Heavier build than what was stock.

Weaknesses:
None yet.

Summary:
I put these on my 2007 Maxima SE. The car had 75000 miles on it and the old ones were toast. These shocks brought back the crisp handling and excellent ride the car had when new. Im pretty sure they are a bit firmer than the stock Nissan shocks but not at all harsh. Im SO glad I bought these over the Monroe gasmatics. I have learned those Monroe shocks are real squishy. Buy these, you wont be disappointed.
