    Default Tokico Spring/Shock Kit - HPK Kit

    Does anybody have any opinions on these? Tokico HPK Kit NISSAN 280Z.
    I'm thinking about buying some for my '77 and would like to hear from someone that has them. Thanks for any replies.

    Tokico went out of production a few months back and there's been shortages on shocks for our cars ever since. I'd be very surprised if they actually have something for our cars.

    They don't. Their website lists both the Blues and Illuminas but when I called they admitted that they haven't had stock for a long time.

    What is available.

    This is terrible news.

    I have wanted to replace my HPS tokiko shocks for a while with some newer ones.

    I wonder if John Coffey can still hook us up with custom Bilsteins.

    Word on another forum is that Tokico is starting to build inventory again.

    I heard the same thing from Greg Whitehead, they got their lawyers to sort out the mess and hopefully they won't trust their distribution to anyone else this time.
