Helps Maintain Wheel Alignment
The strength and thickness of the strut body and brackets are critical for maintaining correct wheel alignment. KYB has the strongest and thickest strut bodies and brackets in the industry, this minimizes flex to keep the alignment correct and you in control.
Restores Designed Stability
In-house damping valves are assembled by hand to help restore the handling and stability to what the vehicle manufacturer intended. This is critical to make sure electronic safety systems work as designed.
Complete Assembly
Already assembled with the correct spring, top mount and insulators required for quick replacement.
ESC ready
Electronic Safety Systems like Electronic Stability Control and automated braking depend on the suspension, brakes and tires operating exactly as the vehicle manufacturer intended. Worn shocks or economy shocks may not have enough damping, making it harder for Electronic Safety Systems to perform as designed.
Helps prolong tire life
Worn or economy shocks may not have enough damping ability to properly control the tire and tire performance, this creates too much tire movement and accelerates tire wear. KYB shocks are engineered for optimal tire performance and wear.
Restores Correct Ride Height
Proper ride height is critical to the performance of sensors, electronic safety systems, and headlight aim. KYB tests each spring and doesn’t consolidate applications to make sure that every Strut-Plus restores vehicle ride height to within the manufacturer's specifications.
OE Replacement
The best choice to restore original design handling and control capabilities; from a leading Original Equipment supplier (see the KYB online catalog for detailed listings).
2018 Product of the Year
Best Overall Import Aftermarket Product, awarded by the Import Vehicle Community in November of 2018.

The KYB Strut-Plus is the best replacement strut assembly solution for vehicle specific, original equipment control and handling. KYB does not cut corners or take a one-size–fits-all approach when designing and manufacturing the Strut-Plus. Unlike competitors, KYB manufactures corner-specific part numbers to help restore designed performance on your vehicle.

Consider this; a strut assembly handles vehicle weight, determines ride height, acts as the steering pivot, controls vehicle stability and can affect a vehicle’s electronic crash avoidance systems. Don’t trust a part designed to fit multiple vehicles and don’t trust anything less than KYB.


Vehicle control capabilities and correct ride height are critical to electronic safety systems like Electronic Stability Control and Automated Braking. The Strut-Plus features KYB struts with vehicle-specific, hand assembled, in house damping valves.

Coil springs design takes into consideration specific corner weights and vehicle attributes, such as engine size, wheel size and trim level.

The direction of the coil spring wind will always match OE design, spring seat pitch is optimized to reduce wear and stress on other components.


The strongest components mean the best, most consistent performance and a product you can recommend with confidence.

A thicker strut body outer shell and stronger brackets minimize flex and metal fatigue to maintain correct wheel alignment.

Heat treated, high-carbon steel coil springs are stress relieved, thoroughly cycle tested and salt-spray tested for sustained performance.

KYB uses Gas-a-just and MonoMax high pressure monotube shocks on several of the most demanding applications.


Struts are safety critical items. They affect steering response, tire performance, stopping distance and the ability of electronic crash avoidance systems to function as designed.

You can install the Strut-Plus with confidence, knowing that every detail has been considered to help keep your vehicle operating and handling as intended.

New KYB Strut-Plus assemblies will improve steering response, reduce stopping distance and give you more confidence in your vehicle.
