Im replacing my struts this weekend. I purchased the KYB Excel-G struts as an OEM replacement, and hey if they feel a little better than stock then im that much more happy. Anyway, Ive recently been made aware of some type of debate between the Excel-G struts and the GR2s. The company says they are identical but other people say the Excel-G is a piece of garbage. Not sure what they mean by that, quality or performance wise. Also, people talk about one being made in Japan and one being made in the US. Does anyone know what this is all about?
Another thing, Im replacing the struts this weekend. They have 92k on them. Some folks talk about replacing the mounting hardware at the top of the struts. Is this unnecessary? Or just something people do?
