I'd like to hear how these Monroe GT Sports perform, as i need new shocks all round aswell!!


I thought they were a bit of an upgrade from std shocks in the earlier E series?

installed gt sports today and must say are well worth the money. nice smoother ride, good steering response... for those looking to spend $400 on shocks is worth it

I noticed with Boge's that the rear is about 30% softer than the front but not sure if its the same case with KYB but it seems these Monroe GT feel about the same which is good.

I just fitted new standard Monroe GT GAS all round a few months ago, with lows. If I put Supers in, how long can I expect the shocks to last? A year? Car does 20K a year.

Can you do anything to help save the shocks? Like different bump stops etc?

No autopart store near me can give me a price on the GT Sports till monday where as Sprint quoted me

Front Shocks/Struts- KYB 333341 $120 Each
Rear Shocks - 343327 - $65 Each

So for KYB Lowered Shocks between $350-$400 depending on where i go. Should i wait till a weekday and get prices on the GT Sports ?

KYB are good for lows, I have a brand new set of rears here you could have for $80.
Wait and get the rest of your prices.
