Info on KYB shocks

Will be getting my EB II suspension done soon and have been quoted on Lovells Superlows and KYB shocks all round with a camber kit. I have been told that KYB have recently been bought out by NGK and the quality of their shocks isn't as good anymore. Has anyone heard similar as I have had KYB's in a few past cars and they have been very good?

NGK have not bought out KYB,they have become a distributer of the product......
Yes I have been advised from some suspension specialist's it's not as good as they once were......

I've got KYBs in my EL and I'm very happy with them so far.
