Hi, I'm looking to buy some tokico shocks for my 2000 Prelude. The reason its 'cuz tokicos are cheaper. But Tokico has 2 kinds of shocks, 1 is Tokico blue which is adjustable, 1 is Tokico white. White is cheaper, so I'm just wondering if their performance or ride comfort is any different. I figured I probably don't need to buy blues 'cuz I wont be adjusting the shock all the time.... does anyone have any idea about the difference of the 2?

Also, I'm considering neuspeed sports springs or Eibach Pros... which one is better? my friend says neuspeed is more stiff.. not as comfortable..

Actually, the whites are the Illuminas, and they are five-way adjustable. They are more expensive than the blues, but the blues do not offer any kind of adjustability.

I currently have Neuspeed Race Springs on my car with Bilsteins, and the ride is stiff, but surprisingly comfortable for a 2 inch drop. As for the sports, they are actually pretty damn close to the stock ride. The blues would be cheaper and do just fine with either the Eibachs or the Neuspeeds, but then again, for about $150 more you can have the ability to adjust the rebound and dampening with the Illuminas.

I personally have little experience with Eibach, so I cannot comment honestly on them. I can honestly recommend the Neuspeed sports and the race springs. I have had both and was completley satisfied with them. They would definitly save you money in the long run as opposed to the Eibachs, but then again it is all your own personal choice.

Have you looked into KYB AGX's? They are a quality inexpensive, adjustable shock. I have seen a set of them for 340 for an integra.

Most companies void the warranty after a 1.5 inch drop.

Well i have the tokico blues and neuspeed sport on my integra, and the ride is pretty good, not too stiff, and not too soft.. i'm happy with my setup cause its a daily driven car, and i don't plan on taking wild turns, and things like that. i hope that helps a lil on ur decision :)
