"I purchased 2 - Shock Absorber for my 2007 Ford Ranger I installed just one to test and it was too stiff and you feel every bump on the road.I had to uninstall it and buy the original shocks and they were just perfect.The bushings were not a perfect fit I had to use the old once.I wish it was a little softer." posted by: Sambo on November 20, 2013 view all 5 reviews

"I purchase a complete set of KYB struts and they fit my 2002 Altima perfectly. The ride is not as smooth as I was expected but it is probably because the previous owner was a rough rider. Overall they are good for the price." posted by: Tino on January 23, 2012

"IT TOOK LONGER TO TAKE THE TIRES OFF THAN TO INSTALL THE SHOCKS. NICE SMOOTH RIDE WORTH THE MONEY." posted by: JJP on April 5, 2013

"I put these on the back of a 2000 Odyssey. The van is softly sprung and I was hoping that this shock would stiffen it up like GR2s typically do in other applications. The shock works well but the ride is still too soft for my taste. to fix the problem I have added air springs as there are no other options for stiffer shocks for this van." posted by: Jimbo on October 15, 2012 view all 5 reviews

"I bought complete sets and I really like it. It gives me smooth ride and it could be better but not too bad for the price. I do not know why some people are condemning this products.I will advice you to try it for yourself" posted by: ola on June 16, 2014

"I bought these parts to replace the ones on my altima. I live in nyc which is notorious for potholes and bad roads. These parts didnt last a month on my car, and I dont drive crazy and I avoid potholes. as soon as my mechanic put these bloody things on they were making noise. very audible very annoying noises. Less then a month later of casual driving i went to get my inspection done. when my mechanic put my car on the lift we both saw these parts i bought BUSTED TO ALL HECK! I thought i needed a wheel alingment, when it was really due to faulty parts. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET MONROE PARTS. I did and have been driving smoothly ever since. Dont buy these parts! thank you and have a nice day." posted by: Officer B. on June 4, 2012 view all 3 reviews

"My oem shock on pass. front was leaking badly. I wanted to save money and do the job myself. I also wanted to upgrade the ride. The shocks arrived in three days. Removal of the old shocks and installing the new pair was real easy. After installation was complete, I road tested and was amazed how much of a difference these KYB shocks improved my ride, smoothed out highway bumps and quieted noise from the front end." posted by: BEF27NASH on January 8, 2009

"I installed the KYB shocks on my 4-cyl 2000 Toyota Tacoma. I noticed a definite improvement in the smoothness of the ride. I was never happy with the harsh ride from my previous shocks, which were installed by a local muffler shop at about three times the price I paid for these. The previous shocks on the front were Gabriel, but I couldn't tell what brand was on the rear. One of the rear shocks was leaking oil." posted by: Phil on March 19, 2008

Poor handling, decreased stability, and increased body roll are just some of the reasons why you need to check your shocks and struts regularly. Tucked underneath the vehicle, these parts are hidden from our everyday view. There's no quick and easy way of knowing whether these parts are already used up--that is, until you notice the first few signs of vehicle damage. For these reasons, we tested the KYB shock absorber and strut assembly on our trusty old Mazda 3 to see if the parts will make any difference in our vehicle's handling and performance.

Features

  • OE-comparable
  • Rear, driver-side location
  • Twin-tube design
  • Black finish
  • Non-adjustable damping
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Lifetime KYB limited warranty

What we like

  • The assembly is perfect for high-mileage vehicles like our Mazda 3. With more than 90,000 miles on our ride, one can only expect poor handling and irritating noise. After we've installed the KYB shock absorber and strut assembly, we noticed that our once discomfited ride was back to its old zippy self.
  • For its quality, the shocks and strut assembly was a great bargain. It's priced way lower than other assemblies in the market that it's almost a steal. We noticed a huge improvement in our vehicle's performance right after we've installed the parts. That kind of quality is something that you'd expect in a more pricey product.
  • Adaptability to different road conditions was excellent. We tested the parts on smooth pavement and rough terrain, and we were impressed at how stable and comfortable our driving was. Our vehicle's tires also had a better grip.
  • Non-adjustable feature provides excellent energy absorption. Bumps and dips on the road weren't too obvious with the new shocks and strut assembly.

What we didn't like

  • The parts weren't a direct fit. It took our mechanics more than two hours to complete the job--and these are pros we are talking about.
  • The assembly doesn't dissipate heat as well as it should. That's kind of expected since we didn't pay premium for the parts.

Our final say

The KYB shock absorber and strut assembly is recommended to anyone who's looking for an affordable OE-comparable assembly. It might be a challenge for a novice DIY-er to install the parts. However, if you have good mechanical skills, then installing the assembly wouldn't be a big problem.
