Stay away from Tokico blues, PO installed them on my car and they handled like crap and my right front strut blew out, I recently installed Bilstein sports and made a night and day difference in handling, save up for Bilsteins.

Tokicos are fine,as long as you dont lower your car more then 1.75".Thats the max. allowance on those shocks.

Honestly, I've experienced both Tokico and Bilstein, if I were to compare the two
Bilstein outperforms Tokico by far, you're decision.

i bought that exact tokico system from that ebay seller and it works great on my vehicle. yes, bilsteins and KYB's keep your vehicle even more "in order" but the tokicos dont punish you as much. i am really happy with the tokicos on my street vehicle.
