Why would you wanna waste your money?????? You do not have to change your stock shocks with TRD springs.
But anyway TRD springs will work with Tokico shocks but since you getting the TRD springs why don't you just get a TRD shocks...

TRD springs are not as stiff as most aftermarket springs. therefore (as said above) your stock shocks will still last a decent time.

with most aftermarket springs, they ride a bit harsher and your stock shocks will last an average of about 1 year before they give out (some have lasted 2, but they are in definate need of replacement). so if you go with aftermarket springs, it's always a good though to start saving up for shocks--you will need them in the near future thumbsup

TRD springs are good if you have lots of life in your shocks...my shocks were at 75K and lasted only 3 months with TRD springs...of course how you drive and how much stress you put the shocks in helps too...

I know CT would probably tells you otherwise, but generally speaking, you stock struts would last a long time with TRD springs. These springs only lower the car aproximately 1", and they are not as stiff as Sporlines, H&R, and other aftermarket springs.

If money is not an issue, it is a good idea to change the spring and struts at the same time. You would have smoother/tighter ride. Also, you wouold save on installation cost and alignment cost.
