Alright man. So I purchased a quad set of KYB GR-2 struts for my '00 OBS from my friendly, local KYB dealer and excitedly begin tearing into the job only to discover that the front pair aren't equipped with the required ABS cable mounting tab at the bottom.

Before returning them in exchange for the correct part, I log onto KYB's website to locate the correct part# in an effort to assist the hapless souls at the parts counter ...to discover what? :confused:

Well, simply that KYB doesn't offer a front strut for the first gen OBS w/ ABS. Say what? :-\ ABS was standard equipment on the OBS for a number of years.

Anybody have any suggestions? I'm a little soured on KYB at the moment ...apparently they're not the shiznit they're cracked-up to be.

**** ******!

Thanks Josh. That's pretty much what I'd settled on doing. I've got some weather/UV-resistant ties that the phone company uses to bundle cables with.
