damn thats cheap...is there a catch? has anyone ordered from them? is there like a $50 hipping and handling fee?
i just looked on there again and the price has dropped since the last time i looked at it, its $140 now. i calculated how much shipping would be to me and it was $35. thats to the east coast so you cali people would probably get a lower shipping quote than that.

Try www.shox.com They sell it for $189. But if you find another price that's lower, they'll either beat it or match it. The best I've seen H&R Sports go for online was from www.maccar.com They sell it for $139.95 All you have to do is call shox.com up and tell them you saw a lower advertised price and they'll give it to you. Also, from what I've heard and from my own experience, shox.com is a very good company to order from. And if you find a price lower than maccar, just let them know, they'll beat it as well. The only thing is that the price has to be printed somewhere for them to see.

uhhh...no.:D they'll be fine. but i dont know why you would want to buy an intake now when a whole bunch of people will be selling theirs in a couple months when the CT icebox comes out.

What is the big difference between Tokico Illuminas which are around 400 something for all four and the Tokico Blues which go for about 200 something. thanks.

For the drop, it should be around 1.7-1.5 for the front and 1.5-1.2 for the rear. Camber kit shouldn't be necessary, but that sometimes depends on the car. I've heard of people having camber problems with a Pro-kit drop(1.5")
Tokico illuminas or blues will work fine in my opinion. Most people will probably say go for the illuminas. The difference between the two is that the illuminas are 5-way ride adjustable, hence the added cost.

wat does the 5-way adjustable thing mean. i know that you can change height,but if u are jus planning to keep car at the drop of the springs and jus want aftermarket shocks which are RELIABLE and wont blow out. den is the blues coo? the 5 way adjustable has no extra handling right..so the blues and illuminas are the same in performance but its jus teh height adjustability then? thanks for the help guys

5-way adjustable means RIDE adjustable, not height adjustable. Meaning, you can change the shocks to be firm or soft depending on your taste. If you have no need for that, then yes, Blues will do just fine. Just don't drop more than 1.7" on the blues, they weren't meant to handle a huge drop.
