Shock Absorbers

Brand New shocks very stiff , Need 150 kgs of load atleast for it to be comfortable. Does that Mean shocks are bad ?

Dear Scotty,

I replaced my shock absorbers recently with kyb shocks . I live in sri lanka and i have a montero sport . I didnt replace them with the genuine mitsubishi shocks because they were damn expensive 1000 usd almost. Unfortunately the kyb shocks are very stiff but it rides decently only if you load about 150 kgs to the vehicle. Does that mean the shocks are bad or they are just stiff. It doesnt bounce , ride is very stiff. although you can feel every bump so its very uncomfortable. Should i replace them with genuine mitsubishi shock absorbers ?
