Well the time has come to replace suspension again, I am lowered on ssc springs and KYB gr-2 struts, Instead of just replacing the struts I am goin to return my car to stock height and make it more feasable for daily driving. I am looking to replace everything with quick strut set up. If you were me which ones would you go with, Monroe quick struts or the kyb quick struts? Thanks




My other concern is that some of the listings for either brand quick struts say that they will not allow 17' or 18" wheels on the car. I have 18" SS wheels off of a 2008 impala. Are they referring to the strut bearing plate being in the way? they fit with my lowered set up now.

Is there anything wrong with what you have now? Are they shot?

I really don't know anything about suspension related stuff, but if what you have is in good shape, let me know if you're willing to get rid of it...

dont know why they say it wont work with a 17 or 18 wheel, shouldnt matter the wheel diameter. Its the overall tire diameter and width that causes problems.

I'll think you'll find most would recommend KYB hands down. I myself will be ordering the GR-2's when I'm able to find some coil springs from a 91C Very Happy
