For the money they make sense
I've paired this with kyb excel g struts that are about 30% firmer than OEM. The front is extremely firm compared to stock and I love it, dropped the car about 1.2 inches in the front. The rear of the car not so much, dropped the car maybe .25 inch, I compared the spring length well off the car and they are about the same so that drop is expected. Front of the car looks and feels much lower than the rear. Over all I"m happy, but coilovers would have been a better choice.

As with other KYB products I've bought in the past these seemed to be of the same quality but after putting them on and driving approximately 125 miles the drivers side has a rattle in it already. It's not as bad as the original ones I replaced but to have noise coming from it at all tells me it's defective. Not happy about it due to the work involved to change.
