I had them on my old car.

They were okay, personally wish they were stiffer.

According to Tokico's website, they are the ones that make the Maxima's OEM shocks.

And I've been told that the Primera's OEM shocks are Tokico..... does anyone know who makes the G20's OEM?

On my old Teg, they matched up pretty well with the H&R Sport springs.

But it depends on the springs -- IIRC the Blues are closer to OEM replacements, so they can handle stock to somewhat stiffer than stock. Can't really use them with race-level springs.

well i ended up ordering the tokico blues w/ h and r's, hopefully it will be a noticeable difference from stock, cause the stock maxima handling is nothin special (perhaps i was spoiled by the g?)

Blues are barely stiffer than the OEM Tokicos. H&R springs are said to be the softest and most comfortable spring available. The pair will work and it will ride nice. Just be aware that the shock will not last as long as OEM or if you bought an adjustable like Illumina.

Stechs are soft, but not nearly as soft as H&R.

Honestly the blue/h&r setup is very popular and by no means junk. Its just that some have had the rear struts blow out with any aftermarket spring. Youll like it, carry on!

i thought h and r were stiff as hell :zoinks: mike (p11gdub) had some and they were rough
of course he was on stock shocks, which might not help much..

H&R makes (I believe) three different types of springs:
OE -- just a tad lower than OEM, just a tad stiffer.
Sport -- usually 1-2 inches lower, somewhat stiffer
Race -- 2-3 inches lower, much stiffer

So it depends on how much you can take, which also in part depends on the conditions of the road. Because of the sheer number of cars and people on the highways, California has the worst roads in the country and I wouldn't rock stiff race springs here in pothole-heavy San Francisco.
