Hi all! I am looking for part numbers for KYB shocks/struts for my 87 RX. I know quite a few of you are running them and love them, and I thought I would give them a try.

Unfortunatley these little cars have many a name (Loyale, 1800, RX, etc..). I have a local dealer here who can get the shocks but he doesn't have part numbers for the front.

Any information from the Gurus or not so Guru, (I am in the latter category) would be greatly appreciated.

I have KYBs front and rear. Not sure what the part numbers are, but i can try to find them.

The front KYBs are from a 2WD XT. I used the stock RX springs and it lowered the car about 2" and kept its stiffness. The new KYBs are also alot better than the stock struts.

# for the rears is 341053, you must have the adjustable spring perch from your old shocks to use these.
