Tokico Blue for Front & Rear
 
Found where I can buy the front and rear Tokico Blue shock for the Cruiser for under $300 and wondered if anyone has found a better price anywhere?
They are listed on ebay for over $400 that seemed high to me so I started searching the internet and came up with the $300. :)

I paid just under $275 for mine, but we're talking several years ago. Well worth it, imo.

Chromenut: What brand are your lowering springs and how much did you pay for 'em?

H&R Super Sport Springs, I did look at many others and the deal with the H&Rs is that they were 2mm thicker than all the rest, so I figured they would last longer. So far I love them, the ride is just as good except when you hit bumps, then it's a bit tougher, but a whole lot better on cornering than it was with the factory springs.

I got them on sale for $228, back in the day. I see some places have them for even less now...

Apperently many of you don 't know that you don't need shorter shocks and struts for Eibach springs :drag:

Eibachs only drop about 1,5" and it's perfectly okay to use your stock suspension for drops untill 40 mm (1,6").

Never heard this before, what facts sheet did it come from? Just see where most members who lower their cruiser also install Tokico Blue.

Eibach states that it will lower 1.5" front, 2" back I believe.
