Final Say: Tokico or Koni?

Well, I have finally saved enough money for new shocks. To tell you the truth, I just don't know which one to pick. So I need help. Please help me

Thanks.

I got koni's from http://www.supercoupeperformance.com/ and im really happy with them.
I would highly recommend installing an ADDCO rear sway bar at the same time.


I like the idea of being able to control the shocks with the turn of a knob.

Koni. Remember the Koni fronts are inserts and i would recommend getting a set of worn out shot shocks probably from someone on the board, so you can minimize downtime.

you hack off the top of the shock at the welded edge, drill a hole in the middle of the bottom mount of the shock, and insert a tube, and bolt the bottom of it to the shock body.

The search button yields great results.

Koni's definately.

Tokico's are too expensive for what they are IMO. They are at best a stock replacement. They are by no means a performance damper. But I can't speak for the Illumina's.

Ahhhh... Now I see... I had already seen the local post, but the Mark site was quite informative. Thanks.
