    Hey everyone, I just ordered the kyb front strut quick assembly kit for the front, but couldnt find the same for the rear - I'm able to only see the rear strut itself (341322). Does KYB make the kit for the rear?

    If not, what do you recommend? In that case, should I return the front kyb kits and get the same brand?

    Also, just noticed that ball joints for the front have gone up! It seems like they're going for $50-$60 a piece now vs older forum posts of $35. Bummer. Thanks!

    I have never seen a part number for rear complete strut assemblies. Have you checked KYB's website? If it's not there they dont exist.

    Gen 3 is not gen 2. This is the gen 2 forum.

    Bummer. Its not on the KYB site or any other sites. Should I go ahead with KYB strut kit on the front, and a different brand on the back? If anyone has mixed and matched, how has it affected their ride and which rear complete assembly did they go with? Thanks!

    Could you rent spring compressors and use the old rear springs, or are they in bad shape?

    Have you tried the dealer? I believe the OEM are KYB.

    Really! Gen 3 is not Gen 2, thanks for clearing that up.
    The main point was a suggestion to try rockauto, you know, trying to be kind and helpful, unlike your post.

    From a RockAuto receipt I show KYB SR4223/SR4224 (front?) and SR4513/SR4514 (rear?). Still sitting in the gararge, so I can't confirm that they fit. But they're supposed to...

    @Skibob I have to admit my first go around and am a bit hesitant to use the spring compressor. Thanks!
    @RobH i think “SR4513/SR4514” is it.. or at least it seems it - thanks!

    First off, I never claimed to know anything about cars.
    I suggested a place to find a part someone was looking for, so again your second response was also completely useless.
    Keep going....I enjoy reading your uselessness.
