For some reason a half-dozen newbies have hit me up this week via PM asking if I sell this stuff.  Not since 2011.  Nobody has their products right now in the USA.  Tokico screwed up their distribution channel 3 years ago and have not recovered.  They are advertising on LinkedIn for two or three manager positions so it looks like the key people have quit or were fired.

 

Buy KYB, Koni, Bilstein, Monroe, or STAGG.

 

Just don't ask me, I don't sell that stuff.

I have to admit i almost did the same. I kept looking for your website after reading about all these parts you used to make. It took me awhile to find the post where you said you are no longer selling them. Take it as a sort of complement...i guess.

It was me, I found an old post from 2007 saying he had lots of em. So I figured he might still...
I had no idea Tokico had gone down hill in their supply chain either.

It wasn't just one person, I've had six people PM me this week.  In the previous six months, maybe one person.  Someone is spreading rumors... :-)

Just for reference, for a slightly lowered Z on 210lb/in springs, what would a good damper be these days? Bilstein P-0032's arent available currently, and I've been considering the tokico HP Blues, as they are still available (listed as such, anyway) from some of datsun places.

 

Would the KYBs or Monroes (only the OE replacement are available) handle the heavier spring rates?

Bilstein P-0032's arent available currently

 

Uh oh...do you mind elaborating? I see them listed on a few sites but haven't yet inquired.
