A rear sway bar story

What to expect with KYB rear shocks vs Suzuki OEM zc31s rear shocks.

KYB shocks start out very stiff and then settle out alot softer, hence the need for a few weeks of driving before reviewing. Initially they were stiffer than OEM, but after breaking in, they are now alot softer, as expected. The rear is now very comfortable over the rough roads, at the expense of bounciness and body roll.


Suzuki OEM zc31s rear shocks + Auto Technica Workshop rear sway bar.

This combination provided a significant amount of rotation of the rear of the car. Probably fine for autocross where tight corners are navigated, but not for a regular street driven car. I was very wary of this combination whenever the road was wet, always expecting the rear of the car to overtake the front.

This combination works wonderfully. The rear of the car is staying alot flatter than stock. Steering input is now reduced when cornering, and the rear of the car has a very controlled rotation. There is more rotation than stock but with a comforatble ride, and the car is not as easily upset by bumps mid corner. Car does not feel edgy, and can still be pushed on damp roads. I really like this combination, and can comfortably recommend this setup to people looking for a replacement rear shock.
