I replaced my Z51 Bilsteins with these KYB's. I was set on buying the Bilsteins until several other parts needed to be replaced and decided to try the KYB's in order to save money (half the price of the Bilsteins). I was thoroughly surprised at how close these are to the Bilsteins with the handling. They are 95-98% as tight as the Bilsteins and respond VERY well. Anyone on a budget that wants to save a little $$ but not want to sacrifice the handling, I highly recommend these as the only replacement to the Bilsteins. Price for 4 shocks was $154.
