Default 04 tsx kyb gr2 questions

Anyone here running kyb g2r struts with stock springs? it seems like the tl guys like these as an oem replacement but i couldn't find any feedback from tsx owners. I'm really just looking for a stock replacement and these are cheaper than oem. If they are comparable or better than oem as far as ride quality is concerned then i'm sold so please let me know what yall think.

These are good as OEM replacement, but if you are looking for a real upgrade you'll want Konis.

just adding to this thread, and as a matter of record for myself, that over christmas i replaced my front shocks with KYB GR2, and moog lower control arms on my 2006 TSX with 200k miles, and the ride is just like a comfortable OEM.

i did not use any of the bagged hardware that came with the KYB's, just reused everything from the old shock. and still on OEM springs.

the refreshed front compliance bushing also feels good. im hearing bad things about moog "RK" series parts, being lower end, trying to compete with completely bottom end pricing from cheaper suppliers sold on amazon and ebay. so we'll see how well they last. for now its nice and comfortable as it should be.

i did not get around to replacing the rear pair of shocks yet. not quite sure i need to now... but probably will eventually since i already purchased them.
