I bought the Fiat 124 Spider last fall and only drive it in nice weather/summer rain. These shocks were on the car when I got it and after a summer of driving I am pleased with them. I live in rule Ohio and drive on hilly, twisty back roads and state routes. I have read that the yellow adjustable Konis, set on soft, are a good set up for handling, and if I ever want to make a canyon carver out of the Fiat I may go for those. However for the price difference these are good for touring.

Car Icon 2004 Mercury Mountaineer 4wd With TPMS
Vehicle Miles: 96,500 All Suspension Products on Vehicle
Location: STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO Shocks: KYB GR-2/Excel-G

Miles of product use: 16,000 Spring: N/A

Getting a 2nd generation (2002-10) Ford Explorer/Mercury Mountaineer to handle decently has been a challenge, and after 3 stabs at dampers, and 2 tries with springs, I finally got it. The KYB GR2 dampers really helped settle the SUV down - the stock units, and Monroe and NAPA varieties were tried, none lasted more than 10K miles, and none could cure the rolling water-bed feel of the vehicle. Adding the Eibach front and rear anti-roll bars really helped, but also really showed how awful the earlier shocks were. I m using (now discontinued) Eibach rear lowering springs, and stock (Ford) front springs with 1 3/4 coils cut off each, which has lowered the vehicle approximately 2" all around. The stance is perfect and the ground clearance still reasonable. (the Eibach front springs lowered far too much (nearly 4") and were way too soft). The big tank is now fairly entertaining to drive, the soft front seats are now the cornering limiting device.

Excellent OEM replacements for our 2002 WRX; very well priced and just a tad firmer than new stock shocks. Substantially improved ride, handling, and general stability compared to our worn-out ones. While the overall ride over bumps is quite good, there is a small bit of bounce, though I don t find it to be an issue. If your shocks are starting to degrade and you re on a budget, go for these!
