What is the difference between the KYB GR-2 and the Excel-G products?

GR-2 and Excel-G

We apologize that this is a bit confusing. Both products are identical except for the product name and paint color. KYB sells products throughout the world. Some part numbers fit vehicles from various countries that share the same chassis platform but have different nameplates. At one time there were several KYB brand names, but we are now moving toward one name and color. So in the future all new part numbers will be called Excel-G and have black paint.

  • Enhances Ride Comfort
  • Improves Handling
  • Upgraded Suspension Response

The most economical way to step up from hydraulic shocks to the quality ride and control of gas.
