Both of my C coupes have KYB GR2, non-adjustable gas shocks front and rear, and I like them. No hard riding complaints.Doug McDonnell wrote:Car has White KYB shocks which from my reading means they are the old gas adjust shocks which are hard riding. I think I will just get new Boge shocks and be done with it unless someone advises otherwise.
I agree with Steve Buggy, in a post from a few years ago:

This past weekend I replaced the KYB gas adjust shocks on the rear of my T6
coupe with the KYB GR2 shocks, and what a difference. The ride height of the
rear of my car dropped over 1/2" (but I'm telling my AZ Outlaw friends that
it dropped like 1.5" - 2" just so they'll shut up about this) (good thing
none of them are on the list....). The ride is also noticeably less stiff
with the GR2 shocks. I did a side-by-side test of the 2 different shocks out
of the car, and the difference in shock strength/resistance was dramatic. I
will probably put the GR2s on the front of the car too.
Thanks for all of the input. Stay away from those KYB gas adjust shocks!
