    Yeah these things are gone.

    Called the U.S. Tokico distributor even, no luck.

    Yes, I think we are stuck. I reached out to Aaron a Driftmotion to see if he knew anyone who had them on the shelf. No luck. His response below. I guess i'll have to go coilovers eventually.

    Hi,

    They are backordered from Tokico, I don’t think anyone has any on the shelf. Tein coilovers are really inexpensive now and will handle a lot better than normal lowering springs and Tokico shocks. In my opinion TEMS is really not great for performance, and now they cost too much for what they are.
    Check these out, really nice setup for the money:

    Thanks,

    From Tokico:

    At this time the EU3634 shock is currently on back order. We do not have an ETA currently.

    Shameless plug for TRDShops; Will was notably exceptional in finding the HU3634 and HU3635 for the 89 Supra, and for answering all questions I had. Been keeping up with this thread, and I would be very surprised at this point if anyone found the TEMS front shocks.

    Update from contacting everyone from the parent company Hitachi all the way to the distributors that put the parts out the door to the customer:

    - The shocks are ordered by the master distributor, and Hitachi / Tokico have to supply the parts to the U.S.
    - The manufacturer needs to make the all the parts needed to create another batch.

    When that happens is anyone's guess.
    No ETA's were given.

    So I expect more of these shocks to be available at some point in the future.

    Good thing.
    I was only able to locate 3 shocks in the last few days.
    Still looking for someone with 1 front shock to complete my set!

    I really hope they keep these going. These shocks ride amazing paired with Eibach springs and I dont want to get rid of my mint t.e.m.s. buttons either lol.

    Once I get a full set I am planning on having a linear spring made to fit these.

    Not a fan of the progressive only springs that are available for our cars.

    Really wish there was a linear spring available in the aftermarket. (Not Toyota OEM one)

    Look what showed in the mail today!
