Default How low is toooooo low??????dc

Alright guys I had some blown tokico blues on my eg so I bought some cheap 2nd hand illuminas about 4 weeks ago. I now have a blown drivers side strut---again. I have some skunk coil overs and I have the ride height at 20 inches in the front and 21 and a half in the rear (I measured from the ground to the oval top of the fender). My tires in the front is about a quarter inch tucked and the tires in the rear are even with the top of the opening. I'm looking now for some new struts and before I put them on should I lift the car up alittle or am I just having bad luck with tokico? Note this car is driven 120 miles a day 5 days a week to and from work. All comments helpful and shitty are welcome

Go here first....

Good Website

then go here to find the product

Excellent website

works for me everytime


in relation to ur post (don't know what your title has anything to do with what you're actually asking) tokico's aren't very good for lowering a heavy amount. Atleast i've read alot about other struts that perform better. The best set up i've read about is the Koni Yellows with GC extended upper mounts (budget friendly anyway)
