Looking for Shocks
I had purchased KYB shocks in June and installed them on my car (front & back). The shocks were too stiff. There was no movement when I hit bumps in the road and it felt like metal to metal contact. I decided to purchase the Gabriel front strut/shock combo. It does ride smoother than the KYB's but I feel it could be a little better. I'm not sure it is equivalent to OEM. The springs might be too stiff on both companies. I would recommend purchasing only shocks using your original springs.
