kyb struts

i'm looking at these kyb struts KYB AGX Adjustable Struts and i was wondering compared to stockers how good are they? i know kyb is a good company and this is a good price but i want to make sure before i throw down the cash.

I know KYB struts are a good replacement for stockers.... Even w/lowering springs. But the rates will be off of course.

I used those struts for a total of 15 races and about 10k miles. Very nice strut when coupled with a good spring, no matter what you do with the car. They are not harsh at all if that is what you would like to know.

Well, they are a budget buy, but I think you get a lot for the money and will be happy with them. Great choice!!!

i just found some on ebay and i think for almost twice the price i am going to skip the adjustable and get the non adjustables. it dosn't really matter to me because if my stock struts weren't worn out i wouldn't even bother with struts.

I believe that the rears of the wagons are different and either need specific ones or an adaptor for them.

Awesome Struts. You can go from smooth as stock ride, to complete track setup in literally 5 minutes.
