This is my first post here. I have a 2002 WRX purchased new by me in Feb 2002. It currently has almost 140K on it and I have never replaced the struts/shocks. Recently I have heard a clunk coming from the trunk area, so I think it is time for new struts/shocks. On reading a little here, some have suggested the KYB G2s. What does the group think of the KYB G2s in terms of ride and reliability? Are there any other suggestions? I like the stock ride, but would not mind a little stiffer/tighter suspension. However, cost is an issue. The dealer said that the OEM cost (for them) was $175 a strut. If can go cheaper/better, I would like to! Is there anything else I should replace while I am at it?
The great thing about the car is that after 13 years of daily driving, it still puts a smile on my face!
