Are all aftermerket shocks going to be about that price??

I'm dropped on S-Tech's and my OEM shocks are "blown". I really need replacements, but companies have only very recently been making them. These are the only aftermarket shocks that I can find.

Where I live we have quite a few backroads (very substandard) that I frequent.
I drive at least 100 miles per day. I've got 53000+ miles in 16 months. I would like a shock that can take a good amount of (ab)use.


Not gonna lie, I don't know much about suspension.

Do you know of any that are not as expensive, that will work for my setup?
If not I'll bite the bullet, but I'd rather not spend $470 on shocks:eek:mg:

Thanks

If I may add to this..I don't know about using these shocks with the S-techs, however I was extremely pleased with them when I used them on my other car with eibach sportlines, which drop the car even lower.

i thought those blue's are just replacements for stock...meaning, they are damped to be used for stock springs.

im waiting for Tokico to release the D-Spec (HTS, was it?) for our civics...

Not true...the Blue Tokico's are well above any stock setup...they will not fail and they provide a sporty ride and longevity...I got mine for about $285 shipped...in November 2007.

In the description it says front only... I definitely need, and have been needing, all 4 dampers.

Did you receive all 4?
