thats what i was gunna go for, but i had herd good things about tokico also, so i checked their site, and i don't like how they have the same shock as fitting 4th and 5th generation accords, i know there's gotta be some difference, suspension wise, between the 4th and 5th generations

LOL. thats great. i would say its a draw between koni, agx, and tokiko. I got tokiko and i love them. But ive heard nothing but good stuff about koni or agx. And ive rode in a few cars with agx and it was a good ride.

I've heard bad things about KYB's. I've got Tokico Blues on my car, and they work wonders. That's if you don't want the adjustability, which I don't think I'll ever need.

i wont talk shit about tokicos but i know about kyb agx cuzz thats what i got. there tight!, if i set them on soft my car feels like a caddy, if i set them on stiff, it feels like i got some stiff sway bars durings the curves but its still smooth.i love them

my friend had kybs on is volkswagon and a clip or something like that broke on the back strut and the stut shot right up in to the car thru a speaker damaged the inside trim and and it took them 2 months to get the part he needed to him to fix it!

I am still going to get Koni Yellows. I have heard of people having problems with Illumina's but have never owned any. Never heard any problems with Koni's. KYB doesn't believe that the Gen 2 Integra has shocks in the rear, only the front. :roll:

i have experienced kybs (on my hatch) and tokico blues on my friends prelude, the blues made is car handle like a mother and worked well with it slammed, i like my kybs but the adjustablity i find kind of useless b/c its not like a auto x or antyhing, i would have just got the blues and saved the 10 bucks.

but my dilema is, do i trust a company that spells it VTECH and doesn;t have different struts for 4th and 5th generaton accords? i know there's gotta be some kinda difference between them.

i am getting a hookup, so they will both be the same price prolly, i'm gunna see what he wants for the koni's too
