Default Shocks?

I have an 01 touring, that has 'Gold Line' springs. Looking to put new shocks on in the spring. I have heard that 'Tokico' has the best for lowered cars. The #s are HB 3195 for the front, and HE 2950 for the rear. Is there any new thinking on shocks, or are the 'Tokico' going to be my best choice. I can get these on E-Bay for 230.00 (4, good price? Thanks,,,,

I was looking, and still thinking about the Eibach Pro-damper kit of Struts and shocks made especially for lowering springs. I was told about a site that has them for $299.

Got that exact set-up a year ago (Goldline/Tokico) on my 03 and absolutely love it. Great ride, only slightly stiffer than stock, but handling greatly improved. Would also recommend They are here in San Diego, CA and since I live here, I went to their warehouse and picked up my Tokicos. And at $245 less than the Konis, can't beat the price. [?]

Yes, the Tokicos are the same size as the stock shocks & struts, if that is what you are asking. But if you are asking about installation, unless you are mechanically inclined and know how to use a spring compressor, I would get a professional to install the struts.
