        Comments about KYB Gas Strut:

        Replaced struts on a 2003 Acura 3.2 CL. Job was pretty straightforward with no big surprises. Car had 109,000 on original equipment. It now corners with much less roll, brakes with a lot less dive and gets around town with a lot more grip. I wouldn't use these to race or on a lowered car, but they're just about right for a OE replacement. If they last as long as the factory pieces, I'll be thrilled.

          Comments about KYB Gas Strut:

          I use the struts for every day driving use. Are great for the sporty ride. They make a stiff suspension but that is expected for a good turning car. They are made in Japan.
