Tokico is known in the industry for their
quality shock absorber. They have lead the world in the development of their twin-tube
low-pressure gas shock absorbers, as well as the development of electronically adjustable shoch
Are shock absorbers really important ?
In recent years the real importance os shock absorbers has become more and more apparent
to many people in the automotive field. From the performance nesessay for racing, to the
safety need for family vehicles, properly controlled suspension motion is critical. Shock
absorbers must control two aspects of unwanted suspension motion. The first, and probably
more recognized job, is chassis or body control. Un wanted motions such as excess body roll,
too much pitch and dive, and the uncomfortable floating or wallowing motion, can be reduced
with well designed shocks.
Shock absorbers also have a major effect on tire to road contact. In fact, shock
absorbers play a larger role in keeping the tires on the road than any other
suspension component.Without proper tire contact, loading, cornering, tracking,
braking and overall stability are reduced.Worn or poorly designed shock
absorbers can actually reduce the effectiveness of anti-lock brake systams.
In addition to saftey and performance factors, shocks absorbers also have
a major effect on ride quality.

Why buy Tokico ?
It is not easy to design and manufacture a shock absorbor that controls the chassis,
keeps the tires on the road, and give a decent ride all at the same time. Usually, if the
shock absorbor has enough damping to control excess body motion properly, then the tire
conteact and the ride suffer. Conversely, providing a good ride often means a wallowly or
poorly controlled chassis. Unlike other shocks, Their sophisticated piston/valving design
allows their engineers to design the exact damping curvers necessary for controlling both
the body and the tire/wheel assembly for car, trucks or SUV's. Their superior damping curves
combined with low mechanical drag helps reduce impact harshness and improve ride quality. This
combination explains the unusually high level of satisfaction expreseed by so many of their
Their Limited Warranty warrents its perfomance suspension products to the
original retail purchaser againist defects in material and workmanship and
wear-out when used on private passenger cars and light trucks under normal
operating conditions for as long as such purchase owns the vehicle on which
it was originally installed, except for electronics components, which are
warrented for 1 year from date purchase. The warranty does not apply outside
of the United States and Canada or to any units which have been improperly
installed or installed on vehicles for which they were not designed. Or
have been modified, altered or subjected to misuse, negligence or accident
on the vehicle on which installed. Or are operated commercially, off-the
highway or for raceing or installed on excessively lowered vehicles.
