    no their wasnt any interest in it so I dropped it. If you do want to order something they will make it for you. The savings from the group buy was minimal at best anyways. I want to say it was 20-50 off per set of 4. Not really worth the hasle or dealing with 20 members to save 50 bucks. They have great customer service and would recommend that if someone was interested call them on the phone and talk to someone.

    To my knowledge the KYB are not revalvable. I dont remember ever reading a thread that says they can be. I would think a email to the customer service rep would be best. Id stay away from dealers unless they are a direct company.

    They are actually coil overs. Just not adjustable.

    It's been a few years to say the least. Is the information contained on the first pages of this thread still accurate? looking into properly lowering my car project in the near.

    Birthdays are good for you!! Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.

    Koni shocks are near impossible to find (unless purchased second hand)
    Bilstien shocks are vary rare (can still be revalved)
    Tokico are becoming rare (not sure if they are in production)
    Kyb shocks are hit or miss (and suck)

    Those are all the options for bolt in stock height struts that are stiffer then stock.

    Pretty sure Gabriel, and Monroe are still make crappy OE replacement available.

    pretty much sums it up. my bilsteins were new so i guess they are new old stock. but for some reason they didnt come with a pair of rears so i have the konis in the rear. i can get them rebuilt over here which is awesome.

    With the bilsteins i believe they can "make some to fit" but if will cost you dollars

    So I just spend a long time getting excited, and un-excited about this. Lol. Basically if i want to drop my car 2" I will have to spend more than $700 to make it a smooth, stiff, non-overly-bouncey ride?
    I've had my 86hatch since 2010, Just now feeling comfortable enough with it to throw some $$$$ into it. Still old stock bertha as for now.

    I bought Megan Racing coilovers and KYB GR2 shocks, and my ride feels way better than the original shocks and springs.

    It cost me less than $300. I also did a write up on it.

    I am selling a lowering kit (no shocks) in the trading post

    So according to this the kyb Excel G's are the same thing as the old gr2's. I got my local auto parts store to price match and got a pair for the rears at $60 a piece. Not terrible. I'll be picking them up Wednesday.
