    Default Adjusting tokico illumina 2 for tems

    Just installed them all the way around with eibachs, the shocks did not come with the plastic cap indicators, but i know the flat part on the shaft is the 5 position. I have searched my ass off but could find a thread on this:

    The adjuster just spins all the way around and doesn't stop. there is no difference on the little metal pin to show which way its adjusted to. If i think its on position 1 it could be on position 3 or vice versa. the instructions say nothing about how its supposed to be adjusted when installed.

    Can they be adjusted to far? is there a better way of making them all the same other than trial and error?

    Can anyone shed some light please?

    So it cant be done backwards? if i have all the metal adjusters inline with the bolt holes for the actuator they will all be tuned in the same (firm)?

    I bought the illumina II's which i thought were 5 way adjustable but it says for supra w/tems...... so does this mean its only a three way adjustable shock then?

    I don't know anything else about these things. I think they're fine either direction, but can't say for sure. But I'm pretty sure that's how the stock tems are.

    But you bought these and don't have TEMS? So why did you buy them?

    I do have tems. Maybe these are made to be exact oem replacements and they are only three way adjustable. Not trying to be dense, just thought i would get more adjustablilty out of them and i guess i am over complicating this....

    someone who knows for sure feel free to chime in and set me straight, thanks.

    I do believe you're correct on that.AFAIK they are just orientated in the three directions,doesn't matter if they are 180 degrees difference.

    OP, did you run into any issues with the adjuster being 180 degrees off? I had the exact same question about the adjuster on the Tokico Illumina 2 shock.

    I called Tokico and they told me it was 5-way adjustable and if I turn all the way clockwise it would stop and that would be most firm. I tried that but it keeps spinning and never stops... so perhaps it is only 3 way adjustable...

    Thread is 5 years old and op last logged in in 2012.

    You need to keep turning them. Its not like coil overs where they adjust 1/8 turn.
