    I've been looking at getting some new shock and Tokico HP and KYB GR-2 shocks are around the same price. Which are better? anyone have feedback on either of them? THanks!

    I like the GR-2's since I've rode on them. They're basically a better OEM replacement and not meant for more than a 1.5" drop.
    As for the Tokico's, I'm not sure.

    GR-2s are valved to be 15% stiffer than the factory damper. I don't know about the Tokicos- I've never ridden on them either, but they are supposed to be good units. Intercrew's drag CRX uses Tokico blues.

    :)

    As for drop level, my CRX is more than 1.5 inches down, and after 5000+ miles my GR-2s still feel great. Lots of people have some pretty severe drops with GR-2s without any problems.
