The KYB GR2/Excel-G struts/shocks are essentially a stock replacement for the original KYB struts/shocks that came on USDM LGTs and 2.5i Legacies. As such, they aren't going to last that long with a fairly low and stiff spring like the Swifts. The Swifts were designed to work with JDM LGTs and their Bilsteins. As such, the advertised front drop of 1.2 inches will be more like 1.75 when you factor in the use of USDM (KYB-style) top hats instead of the JDM (Bilstein-style) top hats that came on JDM LGTs and Spec Bs.
