Default Which shocks?

Hey everybody! From your own expirience would shocks would you buy for your bonnie. I heard that Gabrielle or how ever you spell it are bad and they fail prematurlly. I can get a good deal on KYB'*. I heard good things about them but I rather get a feedback from ppl that have the same car.

Well the factroy ones would be just fine. I'll probably be going with those soon. I've heard a lot of people like Monroe. Smellbird has KYB and is loving them (at least I think he is ).

Yup I got KYB'*, but I also have lower springs. So I don't know how they would affect your ride with the stock springs. But for the most part I like them, havent had any problems.

I have AC Delcos in mine. I've found they are a perfect fit. And the first ones went 120,000 miles.

I've got Monroes on the front and KYB'* on the back and am thinking about putting KYB'* on the front as soon as I can get the funds for it. Love the ride of the KYB'*.
