they're excellent.not quite as good as koni, but then your paying a good chunk more more for the adjustability. If you drive hard, should go 75K or more before getting a bit soft...

I have tokicos, and I really like them. I have progress sport springs with them, and the ride is very comfortable and improved handling for a daily driver. I suggest the koni's if you have the $$$. If your serious about autox with them the tokico's might feel a little soft for those type of applications. I would say they are an all around performer. If I could change one thing about my suspension setup it would be racing springs, but I'm not sure if I want to scrape my kit everywhere I go. Hope that helps...

If you aren't lowering a whole lot they will work but otherwise its worth the extra money to get KYB's or Konis. They are damped only a little higher than stock so you won't notice a huge performance gain and if you're too low, they'll soften up and end up riding like stock.

Great shocks. For most of us, we never need to adjust. Its nice, but how often do we really change it?

I have them,
they are bouncy at times but
as a daily driver it is sweet.

still gives you the opportunity
to be aggressive, with the right
springs, but it won't give you
that "crap I should have bought
softer shocks" feeling.

it's mainly good for daily driving
with weekend racing in mind...

I had the tokico blues on both of my old cars and I was very pleased with them for the $. Yeah the Koni's are probably a little better, but you get what you pay for. Currently I have the Illuminas on my 5th gen and they seem to be working out nicely.

that I would ever adjust my shocks.
illuminas are more expensive though...

I have pro-kits and they are ok, but anything more than a pro-kit drops needs something stiffer. I now wish I had something stiffer and adjustable.
