Default Anyone have Tokico blues and springs?

Anyone have them? How do they compare with stock? My track/weekend car can have these or some KYB AGX's with tein-s springs (for now). Which would you want to ride on? The car has Flyin miata F+R sway bars and super pro bushings all around.

Spring rates

Tokico springs

Tein-s tech springs
Rear- 138lb/inch

Stock (Unconfirmed source)
Front- 154lb/inch

I think i need coilovers (next season maybe)

The Tokico HP combo (blues) is terrible. Undersprung for the ride height, and underdamped for the spring rate. Do not waste your money.

I have them and cannot wait to get them off my car. 10,000 miles and they are already sagging bad on the driver's side. I wish I never bought them.

The blues suck. I had them for several years.

Where did you get the spring rates for the s-tech? The set I have are 235F/174R.

Those tokico springs suck serious ***. I had illuminas with tokico springs and i hated it. I should have kept stock springs with the illuminas.
