Tokico suspension kit

Hi,

I'm looking at the Tokico suspension kit for my '95 T-bird which includes 1 1/4" lowering springs, struts and shocks.

Has anybody had exprience with this kit or Tokico products?

Thanks.

I installed that kit on a 97 and I wasn't happy with it it did not lower the car as much as expected. I have the 1.5 kit on my car and I like it.

Besides not being happy with the amount the car was lowered, did the car handle better with the kit?

Thanks.

I don't see a major difference there I also basically rebuilt my front end when i did that so it's hard to say what did what. These cars handle pretty good anyway as long as the front end is in good shape, watch out for crushing a front wheel bearing in hard corners.

I currently have Monroe Reflex struts and shocks and thought the car handled better with the original equipment.

I'm not happy with the Monroes and would like to stiffen up the ride to improve handling.

Wondering if this suspension kit might improve handling from what I have now.
