One of few downsides of decarbon is lifespan. I put 38k of my 48k with airstruts on the front while my OEM "rested" on a shelf in my shed so I should be good for some time. RockAuto has the KYB GR2'* that I hear some great things about. Twin stainless tubes with a little extra dampening force over OEM to compensate for wear on other parts of the suspension. And just a couple dollars over SensaTracs. https://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,c...8Y%2529%2BDOHC
Thanks again. Great information.
I can't say mine feel bad, but the damping in the front end doesn't feel quick like it should be. Are the de Carbons even available anymore? I guess by law they have to be. Maybe need to call GM parts Direct or someplace to see what the cost is on them.
Will have a look at the GR2'* also. Interesting about the twin stainless steel tubes.
