Default Brand new KYB suspension, my review

Well, if anyone is due for a new suspension, I wouldn't be afraid to advise him (or her) to buy KYB GR2s.

I changed all 4 struts and also replaced all 4 springs with Moogs and it feels like driving and entirely new car!

The stance is great, with the rear a little higher than the front. I love my Bonnie

I've done quite a great deal of maintenance of the car. All brake lines are new, new suspension, new ball joints and tie-rod ends, new radiator... I'll soon have a new old car!

Oh yes it does, even if it'* sometimes much more complicated than what the instructions make me believe (rust and seized hardware don't come with instructions!)
