    KYB & Monroe are manufactured globally as a whole unit & I believe Arnott is re-manufacturing domestic OEM struts. Arnott is not refurbishing the variable electro/mechanical valving function in those struts. It would be better if they did.

    I have not found any threads containing information or data from dissecting a variable controlled strut of shock.
