Can the Koni 8641-1319Sport be installed on a sealed strut via "bolt through the bottom"?

How would you rate the KYB GR-2?



What other options are there for a sealed strut?

I recently got these Dobinsons sealed struts installed on my RAV. They fit all 4.1 and 4.2 RAVs. We will be selling these soon from our online shop. Still waiting on pricing but it shouldnt be too much longer.

Mohit, from what I can tell from the picture of the Dobinson's; a sealed strut is one that has the shock "sealed" into the main housing that holds the spring perch? And a non-sealed ('96 - '97 RAVs) one; the shocks can be removed and replaced into the factory housings? :?:

Does anybody know whether the Bilstein Sport shocks are of the sealed or non-sealed variety? Just want to know for sure before spending the $$$$ on them. :lol:

Insteresting.

Are these considered performance or replacement struts?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wonder if the only difference between a sealed and non sealed strut for the 4.1 RAV is just that... that one is sealed and one is not. Otherwise they're the same... same dimension etc.

If that's the case, one could just go to a junk yard and buy some non-sealed struts then buy any insert you wanted and install that without any problems.

Anyone know if this is possible?

both...they will work with standard suspension as well as lowered suspension. my rav is lowered 1.5" and works well with these shocks.

How much stiffer (if any) are they over stock?

What kind of warranty do they have?
