Default 4x4 KYB on front?

I'm considering upgrading the shocks on my 97 4x4.

Front: KYB-KG5446
Rear: KYB-KG4012
Has anyone done this setup?
Any thoughts about this product line or something else?

Thanks

I've never used KYBs. But any decent shock is always a plus.

I just installed KYB Heavy Duty Monomax all the way around on my 4x4 not sure what the #'s are; I love them. I thought they may be too stiff but they are not. I run the Excel-G's on my cars.

My old ones looked worse. May have been the originals with 200k on them. New ones are nice.
