    Default Tokico Illumina combo source

    I'm about to pull the trigger on buying new struts and springs for my 78 280z. I've pretty much made the selection of an Illumina Strut with the Tokico springs. I've found a couple of sources for the combos, but it's hard to tell if they are really reputable on the net. I would appreciate any good references that members have had with any vendors that sell the combos.

    The ones I have found are

    http://performance.importrp.com/toki.../i-526785.aspx
    http://www.silverminemotors.com/Toki...6.qscstrfrnt01
    http://lightningmotorsports.com/i-526785.aspx


    thanks










    thanks.

    Thanks for the reply. The online listing says they don't have them for a 280, but they also imply you might have to call or email. I've emailed them.

    I got my brakes, front and rear, from silverminemotors and they were good to deal with. I've heard good things about shox.com too.

    Thank you for the responses.

    One thing that is a little un-nerving is that they all seem to use the same graphics and descriptions.

    I found a BBB ratting of A+ for Import Replacement Parts LLC which is the second link and pulled the trigger just as shox.com responded to my email. All of the sources were in the 650-670 range. FYI, I paid 657.18 with UPS ground free shipping.

    This was my first choice, but he no longer sales Tokico.

    Thanks for the referral. Unfortunately I fired Tokico. Hopefully they've got their act together and be sure to open the boxes immediately, inspect the shocks, and make sure you have the right gland nut, shock nut, and optional spacer.
