Whether you’re cruising down the street or clocking record track times, your suspension should be exactly how you want it. The Tokico HTS and D-SPEC Shocks were developed just for this reason—to allow drivers to set up their suspension to move the way they want, all the way from smooth, comfortable ride quality to race-ready setups.
The Tokico HTS and D-SPEC Shocks are the most performance and race-oriented shocks in the Tokico product line. They boast a twin-tube design that features infinitely adjustable precision slide valving that results in additional performance, durability, vehicle control and a smoother ride. And, simple adjustments allow for quick and easy changes between street and track settings. Made with shorter bodies, these Tokico shocks perform better, offer more travel at lower ride heights and are more adaptable to different driving conditions than your stock shocks.
Depending on your year, make and model vehicle, only the D-SPEC or the HTS shocks will be available for your ride. Tokico backs both the HTS shocks and the D-SPEC shocks with a limited Lifetime Warranty when used for street driving.

Replaced the worn stock struts and springs on my 2004 Honda Civic. was looking for an upgrade to a sporty set up but I felt like a full coil over set was a bit of over kill for my needs. I installed these with Tien lowering springs that dropped the car only about a 3/4 of an inch. Speed bumps and parking stops are no problem. The full adjust ability is the most amazing part, 5 min. to change the handling from Highway cruiser to track beast or anywhere in between.

I had this installed for over a week now into the car and definitely an upgrade over from the stock shocks. With these shocks, you can adjust the firmness or softness of the shocks depending on how you want to setup your car suspension ride. The installation is not that complicated and the shocks manufacturer provided some copy on how to setup and adjust the shocks. At full soft, the ride is somewhat softer than stock--very comfortable ride. At full firm, the ride is a little bit of stiff but not so harsh and it make a fast turn so easy that its like you are in a rail. Before I did buy this shocks, I read lots of great reviews and decided to buy the same thing. One more thing, this shocks comes with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer so from this alone you know that this shocks is going to serve you well in the long run.

While waiting for Tokico to disposition my life time warranty claim for my Illuminas (now over 13 years old and no longer available), I purchased a set of KYB AGX SW20, p/n 765016 rear shocks as a replacement. They are the same size and require a similar spacer as the HTS, p/n HTS112F, I had later bought from AutoAnything. Even though my AE86 is mounted with Eibach springs, and TRD rubber all around, it still has the stock 21mm front sway bar and is used as a daily driver. There has been no weight modification to the car. Though the HTS instructions contradicts itself to start with either 5 or 4 turns from maximum, it has been able to provide a greater amount of satisfaction than the KYBs I started with, even without the front sway bay and adjusted down to the lowest setting. Though it was nice that Tokico supplied a thicker shaft nut for the rears instead of two of the same thickness to ease in installation, its threaded rear shaft was a bit too long and without an extra ½ inch spacer added to lower the shock, would have prevented my stock interior cover/cap from being mounted. To conclude, I have found the HTS HTS112 (not short stroke) to be an acceptable, firm damper for my car and driving style with enough adjustability to retain my sway bars. The modified KYBs would be better suited for the track. The modified use of the SW20 rear shocks in an AE86 hatchback are way over damped for LA city streets I drive on. And AutoAnthing's prompt service and reasonable price for my HTSs have made me very satisfied.

Before i purchased these shocks, i searched hi and low all of the different forums to see what the best suspension kit would be (aside from pricey coilovers) and by far everyone reccomended these. After installing them along with eibach prokit loweriing springs, the ride is night and day from before! take a turn at whatever speed you like, these will hold up. When you install them though, I reccomend replacing all of the bushings and nuts / bolts because they tend to get worn and rusted.
