In the distant past I have used Gabriels on one car and KYB on another, and was not very happy with them. I don't know about their current quality, but you get what you pay for, parts AND labor. Do a search for PEP BOYS in the archives as well for many comments on experiences. Remember, your daily commuter is the car where your life is resting most of the time. Personally, I want the best tires, suspension, brakes, and steering I can buy before I worry about anything else on my cars, and my tire/suspension/brake shop ranks right up there with my doctor when it comes to my health. Good luck on your search.
