Default 8 Way GAB Shocks with S Tech Springs

Up for sale is my blast from the past. I have a set of GAB super shocks set up with Tein S Tech springs, and tein bumpstops. The struts have unknown mileage on them but seem to still function well. The springs have 3000 miles on them if that. Only issues I know of is one of the 8 way dampening dials will turn past 8. It still seems to work however. Also one of the nuts at the top of the tophat does not match the rest, and thats all I can think of.

These were all the rage back in the day, and the car sat pretty low when I had them on. They actually handled pretty well, and for someone on a budget they may be a perfect fit. Not sure if these are rebuildable, and again mileage is unknown, but as stated above they seem to still work fine.

Im thinking maybe $300.00 Shipped?

Those shocks were pretty trick in 1995. Good alternative (and better overall valving we found) than the Koni sport and Tokico Illumina.

They haven't been sold in almost 10 years so they are rare...but when new they were about $800 a set...

Bump for some good memories

They worked well, and yes they are old school. Still have some life in them though.

FWIW mine lasted almost 200k miles before the seals went out. They are great quality

I never really measured it but it's low. Still rode pretty tame though. I like the look for sure. I was trying to dig up a pic of the car but I don't have access to those pics right now.

How about $300.00 shipped? It's a long way to Toms River. Let me know what you think. I found a couple of pics of the car with this setup. I will post them up later when I get home.

I've got a couple people interested at this point and I think 300 shipped is a good price.
