Greetings,

About 40k miles ago I had the SVT suspension kit installed.
It seems my struts are now shot as they're bottoming out (front end) when I hit a bump.

Can I replace with KYB Strut assembly?
Do I need to get another SVT kit and replace with that?
What's my best option?

Wow, only 40K?
I put the SVT kit on my 2004 ZX3 2.3 back when it had about 80K on it.
I'm now over 325K miles, and no signs of leaks, or that the dampers have given up damping.

I'd go with the SVT kit again, if it's still available.

Yup. I was surprised.
But I also had some of those car ramps slide out from under the car and drop the car pretty hard.
So it may not be due to normal driving.
I'm in the SF bay area and the roads (especially in SF) are horrible.

I don't see any signs of leaks on the struts, but it's bottoming out over speed bumps no matter how slow I go.
