Called US headquarters for Tokico gas shocks... No 02 Altima shocks/struts.

They don't even have a release date. :mad:

Be patient, we're still early in the model run.
The suits at Tokico/KYB/Billstein, etc. have to
make sure the units sold will justify them making
it before they'll put it into r & d.
The 1st yr. Altima sales #'s should get them to
start scratching their heads.

I've been putting off springs by reassuring myself that shocks/struts MUST be coming out soon for our cars. I'm not known for my patience, but the one thing that is keeping me from buying some springs (and rims, exhaust, etc.) is a Hawaii honeymoon in July (I figure I need about $5 grand).

I'm starting to think that my car is never going to be the way I want it now that I'm getting married. I mean, first a honeymoon, then what? House, kids, college funds, ......

Maybe in thirty years I'll be able to afford all the toys again. I mean, I'll only be 55. I'll just call it my mid-life crisis. :) :)

Don't fret!
It is possible to be married and have
goodies for your car. Look at OhTwo...
He's got kids, too!

Yup, my 91 Q had tokico OEMs but when it came to to replace them, I used Tokico's with different valving for a better handling car...

Well Tokico isnt great, but you can still get them for cheap which is nice. If Bilstein made shocks or KYB did that would be nice also. Just getting kind of nervous about keepin my springs on, im going to be royally pissed if I need new shocks and there is no aftermarket ones out.

Anyone here replace shocks yet?

Shiesh, these damn newer nissans, i have an 86 300zx and had a 97 maxima, neither of them had these quality issues that this altima does.

I just had my shift boot repalced again, man this damn car falls apart to easily.

Nismo will have a suspension system proably in the fall of O3. It will be about 20mm lower and have tuned springs, shocks and swaybars.
