 Post subject: KYB Shocks
PostPosted: 10 Feb 2005 00:13 
I have found a set of KYB GR2 Gas Shocks and yet again I wanna make sure these will fit. :lol:

Now as they'd be comin from the states they have no listing for a lancer only a mirage. So I reckon these would be the ones I'd want.

What dye reckon??

KYB234061 - Front Right
KYB234062 - Front Left
KYB341140 - Rear x 2

PRODUCT: http://www.kyb.com/products/detail.php?ID=1

SPEC.: http://www.kyb.com/catalog/index.php?Ac ... 5&x=43&y=9

Also being that it is the states, dye the whole LHD / RHD would affect it?? :?:

A Lancer is a mirage in the US.

LHD has no effect on shocks, only the steering.

Also don't forget the boots to keep the dust off the shafts.

gen 1 cars should be fine, as even if the shocks come with swaybar mounts you can just not use them. a lancer canbe lowered more than a hatch according to cusco but I doubt you'd ever lower to the limit for road use.

Hey Maxed_Mirage,

Ur just the man I need! I'll get in contact with Ron over in the states and find out if I can get a discount for ordering in bulk.

We'll most defintely save money on shipping costs anyway!

Can you check out in work if the shocks for a CA4A and a CB4A will be the same?

One of the lads has them on his new shape Mirage and they're the business!! Not too hard not too soft, just right. But we may also need lowering springs, so i'll check it out and let you know.

THINGEE

Are they adjustable? Spose it doesnt matter cause thats really cheap for a set of shocks. :D Looks like ive got K.Y.B adjustable shocks in the front of my car and the factory top hats changed over fine so you shouldnt have a problem. You will notice a huge difference over factory shocks :D

The KYB AGX are the adjustable versions and better suited for coilover applications. a little more expensive, but worth it from what I have been hearing.

Dats actually spot on. They quoted me $185 for shipping on one set so i've mailed him today to get a quote on two sets.

No, they're not adjustables. You can't get adjustables for that year only for the newer, infact they're the only shocks KYB do for that generation car.

Yep! They're defo performance shocks. They're what Mitsi use as standard on the Evo 4. And I can't see a prob with fitting coilovers to them seen as they're a direct replacement shock.

Hey! Just got a reply back on the final cost.

2 Sets of Shocks - $606.56
Shipping the 2 sets - $230.00

So basically $418.28 or EURO319.708 each !!

That is a fantastic price for a set of Gas Shocks, they're even cheaper then spurious and way cheaper then Mitsi.

What ye reckon???

SURELY you can get KONI in Europe cheaper than importing KYB from the other side of the world?!?

KONI are a MUCH better shock and they are servicable so will basically last forever. Not to mention adjustable!

Bartman is right dudes, buy local

http://www.motorsportworld.co.uk/

these guys have a very good range to view and the customer service from them is VERY good. I have spent well over £1000 with them and no stress at all, unlike other motor parts traders.

p.s they also have the part codes on the site for you... :)
