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

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.
