These shocks are heavy duty and work great. I have these on my Chevy Avalanche 2002 Truck. They are a great alternative to Bilsteins that are hard to get.

Very Good
2000 Nissan Pathfinder
| Posted by | (Olympia, WA)

I installed these on my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder and found them to be perfect, a complete 180 degrees from "stock" shocks. They give increased stability in turns, and also help keep the rear end from sagging so much when I have a trailer hitched up.

Great replacement for Mazda 5
2010 Mazda 5
| Posted by | (Chicago, IL)

My Mazda 5 had a blown rear shock and I bought a pair of these KYB as replacements. This is an OEM replacement so I could not feel any significant change in ride quality after replacement. You'll need to reuse the dust cover that came off your car with this shock.

Installed these on my daughters car, they really helped the handling out. I feel much better knowing she will have better control of her car. Quality and fit were very impressive. Be sure to purchase new strut mounts and boots.
