Does anyone have a part number or link to the KYBs? Needing to change front and rear shock, after reading this I think I will use the KYB shock and spring combo in the front.
check rockauto for them, they have the best prices for kyb's & many other parts. & kyb might still be offering a rebate.

I will be doing my shocks in the near future and I'm thinking of going with the KYBs and I want to compare your measurement to mine which has a 1" spacer in it at present.
measured mine today. from center of cap to bottom of fender is 20.5". i usually measure from the ground to bottom of fender & that is 35.5" with 265/70/17 tires on stock sport rims.

hopes that helps

Thanks to both of you for the measurement, that's the same as I have with a spacer installing so the KYB Plus shock will have me setting at the same height as I am now which I like the way it looks and drives.

I always measure from the fender to the center of the wheel which give you a truer measure of how much lift one has, when measuring from the ground the actual lift is not known from one T4R to another because of the different sizes of tire everyone has, even the same size tires vary from brand to brand a little bit.

when you first install them the lift will be much higher, it took about 1000 miles for mine to settle to where they are now, & after another 1000 miles it hasnt gone any lower. you should also like the ~10% stiffer springs & shock valving compared to the stock (worn?) shocks/springs.

yes i agree measuring from center of cap/hub is a better way to judge lift, i guess i do from the ground on my vehicle(s) because my tires are the same before i did the shocks.

report back when you install the kybs, curious to hear how you like them.

I will report when I do the shocks but it will be at least a year or so, my shocks now aren't all that bad at present and I will be redoing all of my brakes and then replacing the timing belt before anything else.
