The people I know that have used Tokico shocks have regretted it ever since and paid the money to replace them with what they should have in the first place. I would only recommend Bilstein or Koni.

As for the springs a 2" drop is going to slam the car. Also a 2" for the front and only a 1.3" in the back sounds kinda werid to me. I don't know any one with those springs so I can not speak directly to them.

Tokicos don't last very long. I had them on my old e36 and they went after 18 months, first the front shocks then two months later the rears. Stiff as all hell. I VOTE BILSTEIN.

Don't know about springs, sorry.
