Purchased set of front and rear shocks to replace very old (twenty+ years !!!) Monroe Super Magnums. Believe it or not, the Monroe"s were still holding up (no fading or bouncing) but I felt it was time to replace them.I notice a slight improvement in handling with the KYB"s.The only issue I had was with the front shocks and its lower tube bushings.They were slightly too wide and would not fit easily into the lower holder. I had grind them just a bit in order for them to fit.
