hey guys im going to buy some struts for my h&r race springs next week. the tokico blues are $265 shipped on ebay and the illuminas are roughly $370 shipped. the illuminas are adjustable and the blues are not.

my question is are the illuminas worth the $100 premium over regular tokico blues? anyone running h&r with illuminas or with tokico blues?

also i was wondering since the illuminas are adjustable, can i lower the car more than the 2.25 inches that the h&r's lower it?

both those struts are pretty good, since you arent lowering the car more that 2". i would suggest getting the illuminas, just because you can adjust the comfort level with them. i think with the illuminas, you can adjust them up to 20mm.

Get the illuminas. I have a feeling the blues will blow on you down the road sooner than the illuminas will. I love my illuminas, perfect ride.

I'm riding on Neuspeeds 1.8"/1.7" drop.

I use to run it at 5/4 but I commute alot on crappy highways so I'm at 3/4 now. PERFECT ride for me.

Good luck
