The advertised 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 dependent on your vehicle's trim package, add-ons, 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 rear 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 rear end alignment, when you install new KYB struts, install new KYB strut mounts as well. They’re built to meet or exceed OE quality.
RalliTEK springs are made from chrome silicon spring steel. Chrome silicon spring steel is awesome for conditions involving high stress and for applications where shock or impact loading occurs. Chrome silicon wire can withstand higher and lower temperatures than high-carbon steel wire which makes it an obvious choice for RalliTEK users that make regular mountain trips in the snow and to Mordor. These springs make street driving more fun when unloaded due to the increase in spring rate. Riding on the trail when loaded with RalliTEK springs makes steering response and tracking much more predictable than with the same weight on factory springs.
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 wear of the spring.
