I have the KYBs and I think they float. My dads park ave has the Reflexes and the car handles and rides like its on rails.

I've never tried the KYB, but I have been happy with the Monroe SensaTracks on several different cars

I have no experience with either, but the Monroe Reflexes are the ****. Love 'em. Sensatrak'* are supposed to be close in performance.
