Well, now I know what that strut is. It has an Audi 4 ring symbol and
part number on it. For me, I prefer the KYBs over the stock struts,
based on having one of each on opposite sides of my car. When I was
first introduced to KYBs they were represented as the best shock/strut
per $. I think that is still the case for me. If I were looking at the
best strut, to hell with cost, I'd be buying Bilsteins or Konis.
