    http://www.shox.com has them for $299 and $389 for springs too.
    There prices were the cheapest I had found for Illumina shocks/springs on a CRX and I think their other prices are pretty good. Good luck.

    Lowest price other than Shox.com was at coximport.com...$320.

    I got my illumina's from them and they were very helpful...

    shell out the extra $$$ for the illuminas.

    the blues are ok, but its definately worth the extra money for the illuminas.

    Is the ride quaility really that much better? I know they're adjustable but they're over a $100 a strut. But if they are worth it I'll buy the illumina's.

    meh, the blues are ok, but i was riding them on Skunk2 coils so they seemed stiff enough, but with the skunk2 coils they are almost too stiff for the street, you are lookin at 320 for blues or 420 for illuminas, so shell out the extra c-note and have a suspention good enough for whatever you want to do, road race, auto-x, drag, or take a 1000mi road trip.

    Actually you can go wrong, you have to actually read through as much feedback as you can. There is a whole world of pople on Ebay that sell things, like 0.99 phonecards, pamplets, and useless shit back and forth just so they can get high postive ratings. There was a guy selling some Volks on there, had a lot of positive feedback, but if you looked close at the pics, it was all the same rim, and then if you looked at his feedback you saw the aforementioned dealings.

    I got ripped off by a guy for a Nissan Hardboy service manual- then his account disappeared from eBay. He had 99%+ positive feedback too.

    They have a 5% discount on orders over $100 this month just check the site for the code. I ordered by phone and they still gave me the 5% off.
