Default Who can make me custom shocks?

Well, it seems it's always something when it comes to my exotic builds..

Now, all 3 companies who manufactured shocks for the newer Gen Scion xB have all been pulled and discontinued without reason!

Talking with a performance retailer, Tokico has went as as far as discontinuing all shocks for all scion vehicles as of 2014 without reason.

I don't know what's going on but something is up..

So, I need a source, sources that I can contact about custom shocks.

I need it as a backup.

I do not know if the current stock shocks are equipped to handle the new coil springs and won't know for some time until installed.

I do not know stock spring rate but current spring rate on new coils is 360.

I looked into getting some custom springs for my car and got quoted 250 a pair and I had to send them my stock springs. Screw that.

I could get coilover for that kind of cost. So I have been talking to a seller of BC Racing coilovers and I am going to get custom springs and matching shocks.

Their standard for my car is 14k up front and 8k in the back.

I am going to get 14k/14k which will help with an extra 337lbs in the back.

Looks like bc makes something for your car too.

The guys I talked to were CMS
I talked to a forum vendor over on clublexus.com but they are on lots of forums.

Astrophysicist-
They do not make shocks.

Their website only says they do custom springs.

I got my Coil Springs from them already and am sourcing for custom shocks right now.

Oh snap. So you already got the springs. A quick google search found some shock revalving services. Your best bet is to talk to one of them.

I didn't send them anything.. All they need is all the stock info off the springs.

I obtained that information and sent it to them. They made me my springs.

I have the springs here..
I just need shocks.

I went on BC's website but it looks like they are only a coilover company.

I can get air a LOT cheaper than coilovers and I decided not to go with air this time.. because OMG.. not a good idea where I live.

So, I'm stuck on just shocks, assuming my stock ones are going to be dangerous to use while driving.

If you have that info

then you can find out what stock spring rate is

If you went over 112lb added spring rate vs stock then you will want to get the shocks revalved.

BC coilovers are good. I just installed a set on my Mercedes and I got a clan drop and still a pretty good ride quality.
