Product Description

All KYB struts and shocks carry a LIMITED LIFETIME warranty.

- 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


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.

5 Stars   Smooth and Tight
By on 2/3/2014
Image uploaded by Kurtz G. Installed on my 1993 Mustang GT Convertible.

With Ford Racing "B" Springs and Isolators.

Ride is very smooth and tight in the turns.
No bounce.
No scrubbing (234/45/17 Cobra's 9" wide)
Front fender gap is 1".
Rear fender gap is 1.5".

The cars rides very smooth and the acceleration is more firm, not so much slope in the rear. The front end stays in place and doesnt bounce alot; whenever accelerating and braking.

My braking was definately imporoved.

Image uploaded by Angel H. No bouncing n good level of stiffness. Heard many mixed reviews about KYB, but I have more issue with them so far.

4 stars, only because they did not supply new mounting bushings like other manufacturers do.
