Tokico Shocks Installed
I picked up my Tokico shocks from Toysport for $270 and paid $100 for the installation. The ride is smooth and solid. I think Eibach sportlines and Tokico and are a perfect combination. thumbsup

I think it's the best shocks for Eibach Sportlines. thumbsup

Stock shocks or TRD shocks...
P.S.I would not even spend my money on the new shocks with TRD or Eibach pro shocks, just a poinless waste of money.

KYB AGX-very good shocks $350-450. You can adjust the stifness (4-8 levels).

Well, I have been driving with Sportlines and stock shock for nearly two years. The stocks have had it. So, the Tokico feels 100x better.
