I have Excel G's in my 185.
They are nothing fantastic... they are copies of the OEM shocks.

I have them too. They are gas filled shocks. Just the inserts for the fronts. These have the same part number. The rears are sided and have different part numbers. These are complete struts without top mounts. I got mine from fensport a few years ago now. Can't find part numbers but their website shows the same fitment as st182. Hope this helps. They are a good replacement for stock slight upgrade. Cheaper than Toyota OEM I believe. Probably why I bought them at the time!
