G'day guys,

The time has come to replace the front struts on the EB...

What do you think of these I found on Ebay, i.e. price and brand - KYB's for $155...

Cheers guys.

Have a look for the Ultimas (aka ultraride) on there.
I paid just under $300 for a set of 4 shortened to replace my KYBs. Much firmer ride and the EB just sticks to the road through the corners now.

I ran those KYB's with King Lows on my old EB and
they went really well.

I would personally go KYB.
They are a decent shock for the money.
That 'UltraRide' kit is for all 4 btw.

I installed the KYB's after a pair of Monroe GT gas had bit
the dust after only 9 months. (Monroe gave me my money
back, plus the cost of the new install)

So my vote goes with the KYB.
