Gen V bilsteins and springs

Postby zack » Fri Jun 01, 2018 7:31 pm

Investigating coilovers and hoping to sell my current bilsteins and springs to offset the cost.

They've only got 40,000kms and 4yrs old. What have these been sold for previously or what is reasonable price? Guessing they wouldn't fit Gen IVs?

The alternative is fitting H&R springs @ $620

I paid $100 for a set, was probably more worn than yours though. I was planning on getting mine rebuilt, but $500/pair, I'll just get entry level Tein.

wouldn't B8 bilsteins with H&R be a better alternative than entry level coilovers?

I am now leading this way as the cost is the same.

I'm happy to throw my standard springs onto new dampers, actually I should look at that instead of cheap TEINs...
What the pricing on those B8s? I'm not interested in lowering my car, the ground clearance is useful (I already have my Skyline for sideways over speed humps and driveways action).

Approx $980 delivered or $1350 with H&R springs.

Teins Street Basis Z seem to get decent reviews and they can be shipped for approx $850.

Install is cheaper will coilovers than springs and could sell bilsteins and springs for I don't know $400-$500 as they only have 40,000.
