Default FCM Bilsteins with springs-$1200

FCM revalved Bilsteins with 550F/350R QA1 springs and threaded shock body collars. I'll include the short FCM bumpstops. **No top hats included**

Price: $1200 including regular shipping to the lower 48

I spec'd these out for turbo track day/street/autocross use, took delivery in November of 2009. Put them in, corner weighted them and drove them once, then the car sat for the winter. In 2010, they saw at most 300 miles of easy street use, one track day and about 20-25 pretty serious dual-driver autocrosses including two National Tours.

If I were using the car as stated when I spec'd them out with Shaikh, I would not hesitate to keep them. They are phenomenal on the street, with a great ride and amazing compliance. They are also fantastic on the track, lots of grip with 225/45-15 NT-01s and you don't have to shy away from curbs. With my 255/40-13 Hoosier A6s on the autocross course, the spring rate and valving is a little weak/slow for all the grip. Not a fault of the damper or of FCM, again, they perform awesome as originally spec'd.

As stated they are quite nice, look close to new, with just a bit of scuff on the collars where the spring rides up against it at times. They don't really have a lot of use or miles. If you ordered them new today they would be a good bit more money and would take longer to get to you, I can have them ready to ship early next week at latest. If I don't get a reasonable price I won't hesitate to keep them and have them revalved for stiffer springs.

I can post up pics later today or tomorrow of at least a front as it is on the car.
