Well, I ordered a set of Illuminas from www.nolimitmotorsport.com
They showed the rears (BE2321) on their site, so I called to check on availability of those and the fronts (BZ3062). They said they can get both but they're special order. He quoted me $115 each shipped for the BZ3062s and $95 shipped for the BE2321s plus tax if you're a NY state resident. He said it might take a couple weeks and if they should know tommorow or the next day if they can't get them for some reason. I told him they were discontinued but he sounded pretty confident he could get them. So, I'll keep everyone posted. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

If you do get the fronts, its gonna be old stock. I've exhausted every avenue on getting these back into production by Tokico several months ago. I got every excuse known to mankind on why they couldn't produce them again!
While it may be old stock, I'm sure they'll be just fine to run. I'm using 17 year old brand new TRD rear adjustable shocks right now and have no problem with them.
If you do get 'em and they're brand new, I'll give you 300 bucks for em!!!

Special order? Ha :roll:

As a distributor for Tokico's I couldn't even get them for my own car. :x

Good luck. I really do hope you get these. :)

Alright, well they can't get them. I kinda figured this would happen but I had to try. Maybe I'll just get the HPs for now and just keep looking for a an adjustable alternative.

You can always get adjustables from Toysport. they use the ones for the celica gt and do something with the rubber inserts for the rears. Just make sure you give them a few weeks to get them to you. I waited over a week before I cancelled it cuz it was still sitting there waiting for someone to ship it. This may be a one-time error, but for me, I needed it for the track and they couldn't get it to me in 2 weeks, refused to ship it out at their expense overnight, and I don't do business with people who don't care about their customer.
Seems like a lot of small businesses nowadays have forgotten that we the customers keep them in business and their bills paid!

you can always call visa in a situation like that, they usually go to bat for their customers, unless you treat them like crap...

Thats what you get when you buy from folks that don't care one way or the other about the MK2 crowd.

I made sure to have a source ahead of time, so that when someone does order the Tokico I'll be ready. If it came to a bad / long wait, overnight is a given just to help ease the customer.

I'd rather have a satisfied customer at zero profit then a cancelled order with negative comments. I have even ordered parts before they are paid for with good customers.

nope, gas-a-just struts/shocks are just multi staged valving inside of the unit. The valve adjusts automatically to the road conditions. THere's no settings or adjustments the consumer can make.
KYB's shocks/struts do work pretty good though, I've had them on my Supra for a while now, just replaced the rears with TRD adjustable shocks, which are also made by KYB.

What? For the TRD rear adjustable? I can get it for you tomorrow, but not sure if they're of any use today, they haven't been made in years! I got mine off Ebay a few months ago, they were brand new never used 17 year old shocks that had been sitting unnoticed on a shelf.
