Default FS: FCM Double Adjustable Bilsteins

I've had to move on due to points classing, but if you don't have to worry about NASA points these are for you.

I had these custom valved by FCM (not his normal valving) about 4 years ago. Springs on there are 700/425 (or I can switch fronts back to 600 original). Shock bodies have been shortened and has helper springs. External canisters with compression *****, rebound is in the shaft.

The top of the front right shaft had part of the shaft break off, but it does not effect the shock at all.

These cost $3600 and took something like 6 months to have made. I'm looking to get $2600 or best offer.

Not really, just going to take someone who wants one of the best coilover setups available at a good price. This is a good deal.

I am building up my suspension budget to splurge on a great coilover system. Been eyeing the Xida's that 949 racing sells. But I like the idea of a double adjustable setup. How would these compare to single adjustable xida's? My car is a dedicate track car and these race spring rates are fine. And how many miles on the coilovers?

Thanks

They have ~15k miles on them.

Even with "race" spring rates these are smooth and comfortable on the road. I'm not sure how to answer comparison question. Both are good. They are fast on track/autox too.

Can you expand on the custom valving? Do you have shock dynos?

Thanks

Double digressive. I don't have sheets to share but they were dynoed at AST for me to verify.

I imagine Shaikh keeps records on what he does. I would be very interested in these if you could get Shaikh to share what kind of valving he put in these.

$2200 shipped within US.

If you don't like valving, you can't get them revalved to whatever and still be way ahead of buying new.

FWIW these on my car at 2600lbs with old 205 rivals was about 1/2 a second off of Hornetball's time on Maxxis tires with Xidas at Cresson NASA event.
