Default FS: KONI 8041 RACE shocks, GC sleeves, Eibach 700/450 springs - $1000

This is the suspension from my black racecar. I purchased the shocks from a Hondatech sponsor and the GC/Eibachs from Goodwin in early '07. The shocks have about ~35k on them, including a bunch of track time over the last two years.

8041s are valved for higher rates than standard OTS Sports, and the bodies are ~10mm shorter in the rear and ~25mm shorter in the front. Rates are biased towards track use - combine them with a big RB Tubular FSB and a stock/MSM RSB and you'll have a very nice, neutral setup for autocross or track events.

Coils/sleeves when they were new:

I'll snap a photo of the shocks if someone REALLY wants one for some reason, but they are used race shocks, so imagine a new one but a little dirty and with some rubber marks on it from tire worms.

These shocks/springs are an excellent entry-level setup, especially at this price. I've set more than a couple of lap records with these under the car.

8041s are $1100 new, sleeves are $400 new. Asking $1000 shipped in the lower 48. I will split the shocks/sleeves up, but only if I have buyers for both. ($700 for the shocks, $300 for the springs, buyers pay shipping if I have to split them.)

Will the sleeves fit yellow Koni Sports? I wonder if these would be too rough for street use... Worn-out stock springs + Koni = not so good right now though :(

delturcious, these spring rates are too high for Koni Sports.

Now what? You're just gonna stick some blocks of wood under the car and ride around on the bump stops?

This thing ain't no shifter-cart.
