Do they have a life time warranty or what.

Alright folks, here we go. KYB GR-2's are factory upgrades. They have a stiffer rebound than factory, which is often referred to as harsh, but it allows for less body roll and better handling. I had 1 3/4" drop springs on mine with zero problems for over two years on decent roads with the KYB's, they were 100% better than stock with the same springs. It wasn't until I moved to New Orleans with craters for roads that I blew one of my KYB's. And that was only due to repeated bottoming out do to poorly kept roads. I have heard alot more negativity about Tokico blues on both B13's and other platforms than I have about KYB's. Hope thi helps.
