Comments about KYB Gas Strut:

At 137K miles on Honda Prelude (base). I have to replace the front with pairs of KYB struts, drive like new not too soft or bouncy. The rear was replaced with Honda OEM at twice the cost; wish I discovered these before rear was done. No more bottoming out at end of slope drive way. Time will tell on reliability, but it's life time warranty.
