I also like the KYBs, but currently on my '87 ChooChoo I'm running Garbiel Hi-Jackers, rear, Gabriel gas shocks, front.

I love the KYB gas adjust shocks on my front. They made a big difference over the red riders I was using. I currently run highjacker air shocks in rear but I will probadly change to KYBs when I buy some air bags( I haul alot).

I haave KYB Gas-Adjusts on the BMW 528i that is a daily driver and has seen some track and autocross time. I like the way they work, firm and connected to the road.

For the ElCamino, I also ordered KYB shocks, but got the GR-2 instead of Gas-Adjust. They are much softer, but so are the springs--it feels like a decent match. But for me, stiffer shocks and springs are in the master plan.
