They are cheaper than Koni, but not as good either.

the tokicos are out they are $85 each. You can get them at WWW.LANDSPEEDRACING.COM. Get on there and get the number and call for a price and part number.

I checked their website. There are no Tokicos for our cars. They do have adjustables. They are the illumina but not for our cars either.

Adjustable means you can alter the dampening affect of the shock or in other words, make the car ride firmer or softer. This may be good if you autox or something but otherwise it's just for the mental aspect if you ask me.

I had the tokico blues on a 93 accord coupe and it handled awesome and I could tell a big difference over stock. They have a lifetime warranty as long as you don't drop the car into the weeds.

I have the eibach prokit springs in the closet but no shocks for them. I am not paying $550 bucks for the konis that require the destruction of the rear oem shocks. Besides that, I don't want adjustable units either.

I am not positive but generally I think the adjustable ones are about 2x the price of non-adjustable.

so adjustables is better? i rather just pay for non adjustables since it cost much much less...not like i'm going to keep adjusting the ride anyway. i have ground control coil overs and i only adjusted the height once...no point in it..
