KYB strut assemblies for a 2010 2.4L Front wheel drive

Post by Transylvania » Mon May 10, 2021 1:00 pm

Hello all - I am thinking of upgrading the front struts assembly on my 2010 Vibe with KYBs and can't seem to find the part number that would fit. I read the postings for 2005-08, but nothing for 09-10.

Has any of you used KYB strut assemblies on 09-10 Vibes? If so, what part numbers did you use?

Thanks,

Tibor

A couple of years ago, I replaced the struts on my 2009 Vibe. At that time KYB did not make strut assemblies for the '09-'10 Vibe. I wanted a softer ride because I have the 17" rims so I went with the Monroe Quick struts instead.

If I were to do it again, I would source all the parts and assemble the struts myself using the KYB struts. There were some issues with the Monroe Quick strut assemblies that I had to take them apart and correct so they did not save me any time and cost me more because the OEM caps on top of the struts would not fit on the Monroe struts. I had to buy new caps for a KIA that fit and worked with the Monroe Quick strut.
