Re: KYB struts - ACK!!

KYB's are the "Subaru's" of struts. Great warranty, lots of flash.  Not really
any good.

I used these on my VW Scirroco and was dissapointed. While I used them, the
performance was so-so.  They died after 80K miles.  I'll never put KYB on any
car again. Boge gas struts, are a much better choice.
