KYB GR-2 Strut Cartridge
81-85 RX-7 - 12A Engine - Front

KYB GR-2 front strut inserts for the 1981-85 RX-7 (12A Engine) are designed to restore ride quality and comfort to original levels while also improving handling and cornering performance. KYB GR-2/Excel-G struts for the early RX-7 application are an ideal strut for car owners looking to replace old, worn original or aftermarket units. The GR-2/Excel-G struts and shocks have been specially tuned for the RX-7 to restore ride quality to match the original feel and ride comfort initially offered by the Mazda OE shocks, with build quality that meets or exceeds OE specs. A great replacement shock for everyday driving at a very reasonable price. Priced and sold individually - two (2) required per vehicle.

Racing Beat Notes:
1. As with many older applications, we've noticed availability of earlier RX-7 replacement products slowly disappearing from suppliers inventory listings. If you're in need of replacement shocks for your early RX-7, we suggest you purchase parts while they're still available! While the 79-80 and 81-85 12A struts appear to be similar, they are NOT interchangeable due to the slightly longer length (20mm) of the 79-80 strut body.

2. Although these shocks are dimensionally identical to the 1981-85 RX-7 (12A & 13B) Tokico HP (HZ1069) shocks, KYB does not list these shocks as applicable for use on the 1984-85 GSL-SE (13B) application. While these KYB shocks can be installed on the GSL-SE application, the compliant OE valving on these shocks (combined with the slightly heavier 13B engine) will likely produce an under-dampened ride quality.
