Improved ride tremendously, front end does not dip when applying breaks, in sharp turns my car hugs the road with out any swaying. great shocks for the price. Struggled removing and replacing first front shock. After first front shock, second shock installtion went a lot smoother. Car had 186,000 miles, feels like a new car.
Pretty good for the money
I replaced my 7 year old Acura RSX OEM struts with these Gabriels a few weeks ago and my vehicle's ride quality, which was stiff and jarring, has improved noticeably. I'd guess that these are not top of the line struts but they get the job done. Satisfactory so far. Let's see how they hold up after some time. Btw Note they are made in China, if that matters to you. Good luck.
