I have just bought and recieved this set to replace the old SLS rears and my 12 years old fronts:

SHOCKS. (non SLS):
FR-KY334189
FL-KY334190
RR-KY334191
RL-KY334192

SPRING. (non SLS):-
2 x Rear R&L-RA5761

Now I am wondering is this all I need for the replacement? Do I need any new rubber parts???? And if so can someone give me the part nrs.

And do I need a wheel alignment afther installing the new shocks?

I personally would have got the front springs to complete the set.

No other parts needed and yes you will definately need an alignment.

you may need new dust covers and bump stops. you just have to look.

Edit: Actually I'm positive you will need dust covers as old ones will get ripped in the install process as they can't take any beating anymore.

Thanks, I think I will order some front springs as well.
And about the dust covers and bump stops, are there specific KYB ones? I can't find them in de Kyp cataloge?

Personally I don't see why you need new front springs at all.......

My rear dust covers were fine, Elmy's not, take a look!

Rookie is right. the dust covers can be good. I took that bet too but was wrong in my case.
Anyway I don't know of any kyb specific dust covers. I just ordered some for forester.
