I agree. Now it is time for me to do the rear ones. KYB strut-plus is what i will be using again. i have read some people have just had problems with getting wrong sides but overall reviews for kyb strut-plus seems strong. All other companies seem to suck at making a quick strut(gabriel,monroe,etc).

As long as your car is in good shape, you should find that the rears are easier to do than the front. You got the worst out of the way already!

fleetw00d seems to have made some friends!
The biggest problem with the rear is that the bolt at the bottom many times is rusted into the sleeve in the bushing in the knuckle. The last two sets of rear shocks I've done have required replacement of those bushings and they are a pain in the neck to replace; I may have had to cut the bolt/bushing sleeve to get them apart. Start a couple days ahead of time spraying this with some kind of penetrating lubricant; then check to see if the bolt will even rotate. If not, find a set of bushings and new bolts before tearing into it.
