View Full Version : KYB Question..

Hey everyone…

I just wanted to hear what you all think about KYB struts. I have lowered springs and my car rids like a dump truck… now I assume struts will help but what ones do I get?

There seams to be three types of KYB’s :
Factory replacements 269.99$
GR-2 Ebay 278.83
AGX 538.00$

Now do I really need the adjustable AGX’s to help with the bumpy ride? Or will the GR-2’s do the trick. Also are the GR-2’s the factory replacements listed on

Thanks in advance…

pfyc = gr2.

I have the Gr2's and lowering springs and have no problems along with most other people. I got mine from and i think it came to about 250 with shipping iirc.

pfyc has both the KYB GR2's and the KYB AGX's. The GR2's aren't quite factory replacements. They are meant for factory ride height and stiffness, but they are nitrogen charged unlike the factory struts which gives them more consistent dampening, and they are slightly higher quality so they will last longer than factory struts if paired with stiffer lowering springs. The adjustable AGX's are always preferable though to use with performance springs. They will last longer and give a better ride. They are only $500 which is cheap for good performance parts.

I like Tokico better. KYB is close second.

so you have Tokico struts on your GA?

I've never checked for my GA; I don't mod my DD outside of cosmetics--run OEM everything. I ran Tokicos on Starions. Can't get them for those anymore either. Those were the good ol' days.
