To ensure the vehicle performs safely and as designed, we recommend replacing shocks & struts in pairs. If the damping rates are significantly different from side to side (like using different brand parts or mixing old with new) the vehicle body and wheel movement variations could cause handling irregularities. We also recommend performing an alignment after replacement. This will ensure proper tracking and protect your vehicle's tires from premature wear.

Why Buy KYB Excel-G?

KYB Excel-G shocks and struts will match your vehicle’s Original Equipment (OE). These shocks and struts are perfect for restoring or surpassing your original suspension performance. Some of their perks include:

  • Equal or greater OE performance
  • Calibrated to OE specifications
  • Nitrogen gas-charged, twin-tube design made of quality materials
