Default KYB AGX shocks + 2nd gen FM springs + spacers

As the title says, I have my old setup of KYB AGX shocks and FM springs for sale.

I was running these with a FCM bump stop and NB top hat setup, but I'm transferring those components to new setup, so they're not included.

What IS included is 4 shocks, 4 springs, and 4 spacers.

I was running 225-50-15 tires, which ended up rubbing like crazy once I lowered the car with this setup, and I made the spacers. One set is aluminum, one set is UHMW. Aluminum set is .6", UHMW set is .66". Even with the spacers this setup was lower than stock, and without the spacers it brought all four tires roughly even with the top of the fender. These are the type of spacers that sit on the shock, below the spring.

Springs as mentioned are FM's current spec, so 318 lbs/in front, 233 lbs/in rear. They go for $249 new, and these are in like new condition. They have about 10k miles on them.

The shocks are another story. I apparently nicked the rod of one of the fronts, and it's leaking. So it needs to be replaced.


SOLD! shipped for springs.

$100 + actual shipping for shocks.
Cheapest I can find them on Ebay is $410 for a full setup, so $120ish is a bargain considering you have to replace one, which is $90 brand new from Summit Racing. I'm currently trying to get a used one, in which case the price may go up.

SOLD! for a set of spring spacers.


I also have stock shocks and springs, and two extra NA top hats.

$20 local pickup for stock spring set.

$50 local pickup for 4 shocks, 4 springs, and 4 top hats.

Edit: Here's a crappy picture of the leaky one. Pictured bump stop is the one that's not included. The black stuff on the shock is uncleaned grease. Apparently oil attracts dirt and grime, who knew.

Around 10-15k. They weren't on the car for very long when it was still my daily driver. I bought a new car, and since then this car has seen very little mileage, as it is a track only car. It's still street legal and sees a fair amount, but 10-15k is about a years worth of DD'ing, and these shocks are 3 years old I think. Looking at my track day pictures, I was still on stock suspension in Sept. of '06, and on these by Sept. of '08, so somewhere in between those dates.

If you're using stock sized springs such as stock, FM, or racing beat springs, than yes, they'll work. They have the same dimensions as a spring on the bottom, so they sit on the spring perch. Then the spring sits on them. One set is aluminum, one set (the one in the picture) is UHMW, so they're very light. Aluminum set is .6", UHMW set is .66".

I'll get some better pictures later today, they're at my folks. I can snap of picture of them sitting on the spring perch if you'd like.

I sent you a PM about the spacers. I think they are going to work.

Spacers are sold
FM springs are sold

KYB shocks are not sold! I lowered the price down to $100+actual shipping, which because of weight will probably be around $20-25. If you get a new one to replace the leaking one from Summit Racing, that's a set of KYB AGX 8-way adjustable shocks for $235ish after shipping.

I figured no one really wants the stock stuff, so I put their price down to nill, and made it for local pickup only, since after my time, effort, and shipping, I wouldn't make anything.

I can't seem to edit the OP, WTF. But the good stuff is all gone.
KYB AGX shocks - sold
FM springs - sold
spring spacers - sold

I have a complete stock setup available, including 10k mile front shocks. I'll clean them up and assemble for the best offer. If no one responds with any interest, as I know the stock setup isn't exactly desirable, I'll just mark the thread as sold.

I'd also like to note, that I've stripped a considerable amount of crap out of the car for weight saving purposes. For example I have an excellent condition NA airbag. Other stuff as well, I can't think of it all. PM with questions. I have some speaker panels cut for larger MOMO speakers, along with the speakers themselves.
