    Which ones would you guys recommend? I have a 94 hatchback and i can feel my stock shocks about to go about the drop. Tokico blues and Kybs are nearly the same price (kybs slightly cheaper), which ones are better?

    Depends...tokico handle better being a stiffer strut than the KYB's, i just put the kyb's on my civic with 2.5 inch sprint springs and it rides almost like it has the stock struts on there. Soft and not as controlled. The tokicos were firm and sometimes a little harsh with neuspeed race springs. I think it depends on your springs too. Save your money and buy something adjustable, so you can set it to match your current spring rate. :angry: Don't waste money, you have been warned. :blink:

    i got some kyb's matched up with h&r's and they ride great. it's a firm ride but not harsh. i've had good experience with kyb's in the past that's why i got them again.

    riding on tokios on my hatchback with newspeed springs, i like them a lot but yes are sometimes harsh, i plan on converting to adj. coilovers - pulled everything out in the back hatch - sits higher now in the rear and looks odd

    Rode on some Tokico Illuminas / Tokico springs recently and it handles much better than my coilovers / KYB's. I'm going with Tokicos next time.

    I'm riding on Tokico Illuminas on my EG coupe with GC coilovers and they are fine. It is a harsh ride but being that it's adjustable, i just tune it down to 1 or 2 to ride around town. On the weekends, I just turn them up a bit stiffer.
