Default Bilstein OEM '99AE shocks

I just took the original shocks off of my '99 AE Miata. These are the Bilstein ones. The front has blown a seal and is leaking, hence the replace.

I did some looking and found out that these can be fixed and re-valved, but got a great deal on some AGX shocks so I just changed them out.

The shocks have just over 90,000 miles on them and need a little cleaning. They are all boxed up and ready to go. I don't really know what they are worth so what ever you want to offer.

Very interested in the springs and perches but I can't PM you because my post count is too low on this forum (good policy, actually). Please email me so we can work out a deal!! Thanks. Mike

I can do the springs but I'd like the perches as well if possible.

I am still waiting to hear back from Shaikh at FatCatMotorsports. If he doesn't respond early in the week, then "Hermiata" will get dibs, parted or together, what ever you want

Thanks,
Joel

Why is that when I made a tentative offer for it and sent you the PM first?

I was going on the Post date and time stamp. 02:18 PM for Hermiata and 02:30 pm for yours. I was trying to be fair with Hermiata posting first and not being able to send a PM and giving him a fair chance to get a hold of me. I am sorry if I offended anyone...

I think you missed my first post made at 04-18 4:34 PM, almost 24 hours before herMiata made his post. Also our PM exchange happened around the same time after my first post?

I dont mean to offend anyone either, but doesnt this change the situation?

My second post in this thread said hermiata could have the springs if he wanted, all I want is the rest of the package cause only the shocks are very, very useless to me.

Just wanted to give a heads up, he contacted me again, but they are unsold still. Waiting to hear the final word. Had to give the dimensions of the Bilsteins...

OK the final word was that he didn't want them... they are back up for grabs. Pipefather gets first dibs on what parts he wants if he still wants them, then on to hermiata.

Let me know guys,

Joel
