Priced comparably. Is one better than the other?

Both are adjustable.

I have Tokicos on both my cars. They both ride way better than any Koni equipped car I have ridden in.

I occasionally track both cars, and can adjust the Tokicos very easily. When they are one turn out from full stiff, they are as good as any shock for the track.

I have someone trying to convince me to buy the Koni yellow instead of the Tokico D-spec. Money is about even so that's not an issue.

Thanks for the in put.

I got the Tokico D-specs, not from ford racing tho. Very happy so far. I haven't played with the adjustments but that's on the list for today.

May be apples to oranges but i had a set of tokico blues on my last Gt with hr springs and for a DD that went on the twistys from time to time. It was pretty solid.
