KYB Shocks

Anybody have experience with these shocks ?
I'm looking at getting a set of new rear shocks, and I'm wondering if the gas-a-just ones are really worth twice the money as the gr-2 ones ?

They are good shocks. A bit stiffer than say , some cheap NAPA Monroe-matics. They will pick your rear up a hair, compared to a oil shock. Non-adjustable. They will work quite well on a street car that sees limited action and will augment stock torsions and a light rear sway bar nicely. Worth the price? That's up to you.

I prefer the KYB GR-2's...
Build 'em fast...or let 'em sit.
