Tokico's with coil-overs?

Hey all, just wondering if anyone has tried using Tokico Illuminas or D-specs with front or rear coil-overs. I've read that they're the same spec as Konis and KYBs, so there shouldn't be a fitment issue, eh? Opinions or comments?


No.. I'm not "Fast."

I've heard the Tockico's won't take the stress associated with holding all of the cars weight one them.

Most of the places that offer coil over kits with Tokicos beef up their mounts.

While I dont know about the strength of the tokico mounts, I would personally look for a different set of dampeners for coil-over use. My brother has the Illuminas on his '95 with Steeda Sport springs. Those seem to be well matched. I dont think the Illuminas would be good with higher springs rates especially those found with coil-overs. I would suggest getting a good set of Bilsteins or Konis if you are going to run coil-overs.

I've been using them with #475 front springs.

I put the Tokicos on in 1997 and the coil over system on in 2000. No problems with them, but I did notice a little bit of oscillation on the street. I run the car on the track and don't really notice anything out of the ordinary.

I have tokico illuminas and MM coil over kit and it handles awesome. MM would mention somthing about that if it were true there a trust worthy compay and design a kit for the tokico struts. I run a 375# spring as reccomended by MM for a street car that could hit the auto x the odd time.
