I bought some used front kyb struts. Only a month old. Got those plus and got a set of 3 month old tein s tech lowering springs. All for 200. Rides well, absorbs well. It truly depends on the miles and where you're located. Used struts in nyc will feel like shit compared to used struts from a car driven in Pennsylvania.

As stated, price seems high. KYB's have a lifetime warranty...buy them new and have the peace of mind of the warranty.

Don is right. The warranty is worth getting them new.

I would never, ever buy used struts. This is why, too much work to take the old ones out and put these in there just to take out few thousand miles later because some guy lied about how many miles were really on them.

Get new, get piece of mind and know around when its time for new ones. This way you don't wonder and eliminates issues.
