    I have decided that I am going to run Koni Yellow shocks because I have heard bad things about the Tockico Illuminas and KYB does not think that the Gen 2 Integra has rear shocks. Where can I buy these at a reasonable price? I understand that they are more than the Tockico shocks, I just want to find decent price on them.

    i paid a little too much for mine at 145 a piece from the www.tirerack.com.

    i've heard www.kingmotorsports.com sells them for a good price.

    well worth whatever price you pay, they're excellent.

    Unless they can beat ALLJDM's price by a lot I am just going to support the Hondaswap sponser. Now all I need is the money...

    That is an idea, I could ask ricer claus, but there is this problem of a bouncing idle that would be solved by a Skunk2 manifold or a B16 IAC (manifold is preferable:wink:) that I have to take care of first. Plus I think I need new valve stem seals and I know that I am going to need new tires in the next few months. Damn cars are an expensive habit.

    Hmmm, Ricer Claus may have a decision ahead of him. The Skunk2 mani does sound delicious, though.

    Yes he does, 530 + shipping for my car. Like I said, unless someone can offer me a deal far better than that (unlikely) I would rather deal with someone that is reputable and someone that supports Hondaswap.
