The advertized ride height specified for this product is a measurement taken from a completely stock vehicle. Your vehicle's actual ride height after installing these springs may be more or less depending on your vehicle's trim package, addons, or additional modifications.
KYB is the world's largest supplier of shocks and struts to new vehicle manufacturers, and the Excel-G is built on the same assembly lines. It uses the very same high quality components that together work to restore the vehicle's originally designed capabilities such as handling and stability. The Excel-G is a twin-tube gas hydraulic shock that consists of an inner working cylinder and an outer fluid reservoir. The shaft and piston force hydraulic fluid in and out of both, which dampens the vehicle's body movement. Two multi-stage valves of the shock work to provide better handling characteristics during virtually all driving conditions. The working cylinder that the piston works in is also very important, that's why the experts at KYB use extruded tubing which provides a positive seal and consistent performance.
KYB Strut Mounts:
As the name implies, the strut mount is a component that attaches the suspension strut to the vehicle. The strut mount optimizes suspension performance by providing a smooth steering response and reducing vibration. The strut mount includes an insulator and on front struts, a steering pivot bearing. The insulator gets pushed and pulled as many as 1,500 times for every mile driven, and the bearing rotates every time you turn the steering wheel, so it’s easy to see how this part can become worn. To prevent noise and vibration, and preserve smooth steering and proper front end alignment, when you install new KYB struts, install new KYB strut mounts as well. They’re built to meet or exceed OE quality.
These springs were designed with an extra inch of lift to help absorb the rough terrain on the logging roads of the Pacific Northwest. The extra inch of lift also increases the approach and departure angles of the vehicle. This allows easier passage in places that the roads are washed out or when approaching a steep incline. The spring rates are slightly stiffer than the factory spring rates to counteract the elevated center of gravity due to the lift. These springs sit more level than King springs for the best look.
What else? As briefly mentioned above, RalliTEK springs are developed in the PNW (Portland, OR), and King springs are developed in Australia. If you ever ran into a problem with your springs, you will be directed to deal with international customer support which could take a while. Whereas, you can just give us a call and we'll take care of you right away with one of our many guarantees and warranties!
During the assembly process, springs tend to receive small scratches/marks from the spring compressor. This does not affect performance and will not cause premature ware of the spring.
