GAB suspensions

Hi, does anyone know anything about the GAB suspensions? I was told that they were made by Tokico. But I basically want to know if they are worth buying for $600 with installation. BTW, these suspensions are used, but in good condition, as i was told by seller. My car is a 93 civic hatchback. The GAB struts come w/ springs (not sure which), and they're not height and damping adjustable. So non-adjustable whatsoever.

Please let me know what you guys think, I really need some experienced feedbacks. Like how's it ride, comfortable or not, how well does it handle? stuff like that.

Thanks!

GAB shocks were made by KYB in Japan. However, last I heard, they are now being manufactured in Malaysia. In any event, GAB is top notch stuff.

I wasn't aware they had a non-adjustable shock however. I know they had the adjustable for quite some time, because I used to see it in the old Option issues from the 90's.

Btw, if the springs are green, they are most likely the GAB springs that came with the shocks.

I don't think you will find anyone here that will give you first hand experience, especially with the GAB non-adjustable damper.

Cool thanks for the feedback! I just wanted to know if they'd be worth getting still, you know?

cuz i hear a lot of ppl saying not to go cheap on suspensions, so i just wasn't sure if GAB was a good quality suspension and worth the $600 installed for a good used one.

you think thats worth it?

let me know, thanks!!
