Tokico Blues from SuspensionMax

Anyone deal with this place before? I placed an order through their ebay store on July 7th for a full set of Tokico Blues with Springs and they still havent sent me a tracking number.

Ive been getting the run around on the phone for the past couple weeks. Fortunately one of the guys over there (Jacob iirc) has been trying to help track down my order. From what Ive been told Tokico is having some problems getting the HP shocks out?

Buyer beware, if your looking to place an order through these guys it may take a while.

^Good to hear you had better luck with yours! I actually just got a call back from Jacob. From what he tells me, Tokico had a warehouse about 20 minutes from their location and it was shut down, therefore they have to be shipped from Tokico's Kentucky location to SuspensionMax in California, where they will box it back up and ship it up to me in Michigan....lol what a crock! Oh well, at least they are in the mail, I wont need them for another week or so anyways.

Hey thats cool I caught it in your siggy and figured thats what you had on there. I got a deal and went with the tokico springs, they are a rated 1.25" drop, hopefully they will work out.

I ordered KYB's from them, it took about 4 or 5 days before they shipped them out and they were in stock. Good price though.

I don't see any Tokicos on the website, just KYB. What am I missing? Are Tokicos a lot better, or would KYB work ok?

I have KYB's on my 1997 Thunderbird and I'm quite happy with them, especially since I installed my new Vogtland springs. I paid $149 on eBay for both the front and rear shocks and they were brand new in the box. It only took about 3 or 4 days to get them, too.
