Product Description

Reasons to replace your shocks & struts

1. Upgrade
Vehicles are generally designed to handle a broad range of purposes: Passenger ride comfort on one side, load and terrain capabilities on the other. When your typical use of a vehicle sometimes or always stresses heavier loads, top heavy, towing or off-road conditions, you may want to consider replacing the shocks with units that exceed original equipment capabilities. KYB offers many higher-performing “Monotube” shocks for this purpose.

2. Maintenance
Even on well paved roads the shocks can move up or down 1,500 to 1,900 times every mile: In 50,000 miles that can exceed 75 million cycles. Over time, performance tends to decrease gradually and the motorist usually doesn’t realize how much handling and control is lost. Replacing shocks and struts after 50,000 miles can keep the vehicle performing as well as it was designed and extend its life expectancy.

3. Ride Control Conditions-Based
Worn shocks and struts eventually causes ride control conditions to worsen to a degree that impairs the drivers ability to control the vehicle. Road testing and vehicle inspections by a qualified technician every 12,000 miles is recommended to identify and keep the motorist informed about these conditions.

4. Repair of Failed Units
Shock or strut failures are a driving safety hazard. If you can’t control your vehicle, then it controls you. Evidence of failures includes things like; excessive bounce, units leaking to the point of fluid dripping, tires that are cupping and visual component damage.

- Calibrated to compensate for worn suspensions
- Components and valving are designed specifically for each application
- The best choice to restore OE performance and normal driving conditions
- Built with quality that matches or exceeds OE

All KYB struts and shocks carry a LIMITED LIFETIME warranty.

5 Stars   Great performance,great price!
By on 4/21/2014
I purchased these KYB struts and shocks in anticipation of my open track day Saturday,April 19, at the 50th anniversary Mustang meet in Charlotte. These struts and shocks are awesome! Although Saturday was a rainy and cold day the handling of my little 4 cylinder through the infield road course was superb. I surprised more than a few drivers of newer Mustangs and Shelbys. Impressive performance at a great price!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

4 Stars   Good for a twin-tube
By on 9/29/2014
It is a good strut, for a twin-tube. It definitely restored the ride quality on the front end of the car. My only complaint is that it isn't as firm as I would like, however, I wasn't in the market to spend $250 on a monotube, so I settled for a pair of twin-tubes on the front end. Very good strut for someone on a budget!!!

Overall, I like it.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

5 Stars   Night & day difference!

After installing the KYB's, my 86GT rides like a whole different car! I love it! Nice and smooth ride, but now its firm (not uncomfortably) and the body roll is greatly reduced!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
