I've been running this combo for the last month or so, and have been generally pleased with the results. The shocks have around 14k miles on them, springs are new. Ideally, I would prefer a little stiffer valving, but for a daily driver it is a good compromise. As you mentioned, the only real alternative is koni, and I wasn't willing to pay that much. Very happy with the springs (so far I've only gotten about an inch drop). Hope this helps.

tokico and Eibach

I have had this set up for a year now, the front settled in well but the back bounces very badly....those of you with this setup, do you think the back shocks are bad?

I've had that setup for about three years now. I love it. I got mine from shox.com. I had the Tokico's on for five years with the stock springs, and they felt a little soft after four years, so I got a new set. Lifetime warranty, no hassles, and I did it at the same time I put the Eibachs on.

97 LX, 4.6, Dynomax catback, Mustang MAF/intake tube and Aviator throttle body, Xcalibrator2 by Lonnie at BOC, 180 t-stat, Super Coupe wheels with 235/60/16's, Kenny Brown strut tower brace, Tokico Blues, Eibach Pro-kit, some strategically placed MN12 Performance polyurethane pieces, '02 Grand Marquis transmission

Submariners do it deeper...

I ordered the Tokico blues today.

Already have the Eibachs on. Stock Sport shocks leaking @ 157K

I didn't want to split with the $500 necesary for the Konis. Not that they

aren't better, but the race car needs an engine rebuild.
