Yes!

I am not sure why after a few decades that KYB changed their packaging and part numbering system may a "face lift"?

To me as a dealer,user of KYB for years I am old school since the 70's when I think KG series KYB shock as coming in the white box with RED letter KYB.

It s a bit more expensive than US but much cheaper for shipping price

Nitro has good advice.
I have had 4 different suspension set ups on my Cruiser but he has probably done more suspension set ups on more models of cars than anyone on this forum.

Personally, for daily driving, I prefer a shock/strut similar to stock firmness for comfort and to upgrade to thicker anti-sway bars for road handling and corner control. For me, this is an acceptable compromise. You can go firmer if you are willing to compromise some more comfort for a rougher ride which is a more noticeable trade. If taking the corners and curves hard and fast makes you smile the most, then firmer may be a good match for you.

And take a look at some of the adjustable shock/struts for a little more money. That way you are not stuck with just one firmness which may be too soft or too hard.
