    kyb excel g.. not sure which car. but theres a short stroke and youl need a tube spacer. but may not be stiff enough for 8kg

    ST205 celica?? i think thats whats used now? it replaced the ST185 maybe

    i remember D (slydar) mentioning this when i was kicking around his place one day

    205 is slightly longer but not as long as SW20 so the 205 is still a good choice.

    maybe pm Slydar or wait for his response here, he knows his front shocks given all the coilovers his pieced together
