Hopefully tomorrow I will install my front and rear strut bars and change my oil. Might put on the rear Eibach sway as well.

Did the kyb strut mount come in? Was thinking about getting those or maybe the Moog ones. I know the Moogs are supposedly better than the oem mounts but with the kyb ones only being $20 each I'm not sure about those.

Yea, I've had them sitting in the garage now for a while. I can't vouch on the quality as they are still in the box. I can't imagine them being bad since it is KYB. I was seriously surprised that they were cheaper than the moog ones. I have gotten some bad moog parts before but mainly it was from the warehouse that kept shipping out bad ones.

You know when you get a box of parts you are supposed to open it and look at them and feel them and such.

Was surprised to see on Rock Auto the Moog ones are $20 cheaper than from the Moog site.

Well I did, but they were wrapped in a plastic bag and I could see them coated in oil or what ever the bearings have on them so I didn't want to get my hands dirty just yet lol

Haha.

I'm debating between the kyb and Moog now since the Moog is only $10 more.

I'd try the KYB's since they are cheaper, like I did, it's not like it's not a brand name part or anything lol

Just went on 3 hour drive. Went on some rural roads east of here with some nice twisties and ups and downs like a roller coaster. Nice weather just wish it wasn't quite as windy.
