Tokico Illumina > KYB AGX

Koni Sport > Tokico Illumina

KYB AGX > Koni Special > Tokico Blue > KYB GR2

I've heard that if i get some aftermarket shocks my ride quality will be better... with my coilovers and my stock shocks it gets bumpy. Not saying that the bumpy ride will go away... but i've heard that it will be better. Is it true?

It may still be bumpy, but not bouncy. Also, the Illuminas and AGX and Koni Yellows have adjustable dampening, so you can set it to your personal preference.

don't expect amazing ride quality with coilover sleeves. I too was once in your position. I had cheap coilover sleeves on stock shocks and wanted to upgrade. So i decided to spring for the tokico advanced handling kit (1.75" drop spring and illumina's) and i was glad that i did.
You gotta think, how much can a metal sleeve absorb shocks? When you use coilover sleeves the spring is much shorter than just a regular lowering spring. When you adjust the coilover to lower your car you are substituting 2-3" of spring with the metal sleeve.

Contact some of our vendors. I'm sure their prices can beat most other places.
