Very sad to hear. Those Tokico Illumina II TEMS shocks are built with amazing quality and do offer a noticeable difference in normal/sport modes.

If we got a petition going showing demand for these shocks I would sign it.

Wouldn't make an impact.
You are going to need a new company to oversee the entire US distribution of Tokico products.
Mport says they are not that company any more, before that it was Motovicity.

I was told that Hitachi put this product on back-order indefinitely.
So you would likely need a huge demand for this product for them to justify tooling up in Japan to make another run of these specific shocks.

I would guess a minimum order of 5,000 full sets, but they do not give any specific information.

They then ship all necessary components to the US distributor, which pieces everything needed for each shock together and boxes them up.
That's how they have it set up from what I understand.

it's too bad I had these way back the day and they did ride good. Honestly i have tokico blue in my 60k mile mk3 and Tanabe shocks and I think it rides better than my BC coilovers.

Probably SOL at this point.
So close with a set of 3!
