If you're talking about the illumina 5-way adjustable shocks, then they are pretty good, but not as good as the bilstiens sports. This is what i've been told. And the price that you get of rthe front is for each front. You need to spend 63 for each front($126 for both fronts) and 40 for each rear(80 for both) for a total of 206. This is a good price for the illumina adjustable ones, but the premium ones arent that great. This is all going on what i've been told. I was going to buy the illumina for carparts, but with the 33% coupon its really not that much cheaper then a set of bilstiens from TMS.
What I've been told...hope it helps

are there performance shocks any good? they are only $110 from carparts.com with the %33 off. I'm not looking for the BEST shocks, I just don't want to ruin my current shocks when adding lowering springs. are they worth it?
thanks

ok, 206 w/ 33% off makes $173 that seems to be a whole lot less than the $369 that turner wants for a set of sport shocks.

I'm not looking for shocks that will improve performance, heck the car handles better than I can drive anyways. however I would like to lower my car, this ruins the stock shocks, so I need new shocks and don't feel like spending $400 on something I really don't want to, that is why the tokico's sounds pretty good.
