Hello, I am new to car and just got my xB a week ago

I am planning to lower my car using the Tein-S. I want to know is it ok to use the TRD struct/shock with it? If not, what kind of aftermarket shocks should I use??I am mostly looking for comfortable ride.

Thanks

yup i had the same question. I'm looking for better than stock, aftermarket, inexpensive ones. I went to my local carquest and they had no listing for an xb, i then had them look for echo ones. still no luck.

Well guys, good news!!
I'm still gathering up parts for the wife's box and just like you guys, was looking for a good INEXPENSIVE aftermarket strut/shocks.

KYB now produces the front struts in the GR2 Series, It is a new release. I got tired of calling all my venders and getting the same response, "Sorry, I don't show a listing for your application!"
AAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I called KYB directly. Got to speak to an application specialist (That's what they call themselves) And got a part number for the front struts. The rear struts aren't scheduled to be realesed until, sometime in late summer to my understanding.
I ordered mine yesterday and should be in on Thursday.
I don't work today, so I apologize for not posting the part number, but tommorow when I get home from work I will Post it up for everybody. (I have the part number at work) I think it was part # 333358 but will verify tomorrow afterwork.
