Exclamation Tokicos/OEM ground effect pic

Okay well I got the tokicos ordered.

I tried this last year and there were none available anywhere. I was promised they are coming now!

Anyway, some of you know I ordered the OEM ground effects. I just had the sides installed and I think they look good.

I know its hard to see, I will get better pics when I get it out of the garage

I know you have lowered your cruiser but wasn't sure what size tires you are running. The side skirts makes the ground clearance tighter and was wonder how low the car is to the ground now. Will the new shocks impact the ground clearance ?

I like the look of it with just the sides.If you have stock front and rear bumpers the whole kit is clean looking.

I have 18x 7.5 rims with 235 40's

I think your side skirts sit lower than mine from what I can tell.

The springs/tocikos will lower the car a tad over an inch more.

It will look good. It will make it appear to lower than it already is. I have the eibachs on it now 2 rear 1.6 front

Thinking I will have to enter my driveway cleverly.

I am thinking if I go down the street and ease into driveway sideways, then turn once I am up in the drive, I should be good. Kind of do the same thing backing up. Thats the only thing I am concerned about is the driveway.

The best price I have been able to find is around $370 for the front and rear shocks/structs. What kind of price did you find?

HP Blue Tokico Shocks/Struts PT Cruiser Set 00-05 | eBay

He charged me 382 with free shipping.

I think 378 was the cheapest I saw on ebay

There were a few cheaper ones by a few bucks but I like being able to call ask questions and order that way.

Yeah, I was concerned how it would look.

I am happy with just doing the sides
