    i tried getting one repaired but the speciallists near me couldnt find the right seals n shit like that they said they could get some made up but would cost a pretty penny they said depending on how much they mean to you better off most likely buying a new pair

    theyre the same as blues on 3 (valving). basically perfect for "drift" spring rates.

    lots of well known small j' shops use them (jubi ride, revolver, ect) in some of their coilovers.

    i think theyre actually intended for mr2. (aw11)

    whats to know though really. they work

    tsr will be able to reco them if theyre kyb based. if theyre tokico built, they might not be able to do it. (trd use both, cant remember what brand builds the yellows).

    yellows are tokico. tsr has changed hands since you used them last Id say Simon, and by all accounts not quite as helpful(skilful) any more. still worth a shot though.
