So yeah. Basically Ive found that I can get the Tokico HP's for like 275 Shipped and the Illuminas for 450 Shipped... But what is better? I mean is it really worth the xtra cash to go to the 5-way adj? Also, How big of an upgrade is the 13" Cobra brakes for my car??

i think it depends on what you are planning. ya the illuminas are better, but if you are not going to drop the car more then 1.5"-2" i would think the hps would be just fine. also do you go to the track? if you do, you might want illuminas.

Yeah, I will be going to the track. I also have lowering springs and the MM LCA to improve my suspension. These shocks / Struts should be a pretty noticeable difference right?

i just got the tokico hp's installed on mine today... i do go to the track but this isnt a race car.

i guess it depends on what you want to spend and what you plan to use the car for :dunno:

i got them on ebay for $279 w/free shipping O0

My illuminas came with a little plastic piece you put ontop of the shock and use a wrench to turn the dial to what ever setting you want 1-5. mine are set at 5 all around and the ride isnt bad atall. infact it rides smoother than my worn out stock parts did.

the Illuminas adjust with a small flat head screwdriver, u just click it to the number you want to set them at. I can do my whole car in under a minute :banana: lol
