Just wondering whether it's worth replacing the shocks after 70k miles to get back a bit of the ride and handling it used to have (standard road use). Looks like for £220 you can get a full set from buycarparts.co.uk of KYB shocks - does anyone have experience of KYB? Also whether the change will make a difference. Thanks
I'm after some guidance please fellas... I have a 2006 SG 2.5XT and I want to replace shocks and springs with KYB Excel-Gs and Springcoil springs. I have leaking SLS rears and want to lower a little while I'm at it and refresh all round. Looking on eBay and on some of the posts on these forums the following part numbers are given...which according to the KYB catalogue are for Subaru Forester SG 2.0, 2.0 S Turbo, 2.5 RX Nato 1.03 onwards Front: 334371 L / 334370 R Rear: 334345 L / 334344 R and they list the following for my vehicle: Subaru Forester SG 2.0, 2.5XT and 2.5 9.05 - 5.06 Front: 334469 L / 334468 R Rear: 339150 L / 339149 R I emailed KYB and asked the question, which ones were right for my car and they said the latter. My question is what is the difference between these parts...and why do I see the 334345/334344 part numbers for rears for example given as parts needed for similar cars on this forum. I wasn't actually aware of a difference, but since there's different part numbers clearly suggests there is. I am therefore a little confused Can anyone with more knowledge than me help clarify please?
