I dont see any problems with that, KYB are a good and well known manufacturer, and canuck motorsports have a decent ride, ncie ride height... there a little cluncky on a stock strut, but should be better with the KYB's


just outta curiosity, where did you buy your shocks and struts?

Man, I want a full report as to how they handle/perform. I want to run that exact setup! I saw the Canuck springs on 6th and really want to try them. They have a nice drop with a "light" spring rate compared to the other springs out there.

: ) Happy riding : )

the s series are all interchangable.

im currently in the works with canuck motorsports about becoming a dealer here in ontario, i will more than likley be getting back to them after the holiday.
but in the meqntime you can buy directly from their site

www.canuckmotorsports.com

if you were talking about the struts, i havent gotten a connection for those "yet"

are the kyb struts better than the stock struts with lowering springs? I have Eibach Springs installed on the stock struts and the noise they make is kinda annoying. so i'm looking to replace the struts come spring time. what are my best options?

Pretty much KYB's are your only "performance" option, and even then they're not much better than stock, but definetely noticeably.
No other strut will offer any improvement over stock, so either buy the KYB's or the cheapest name-brand replacement you can find.
