Default R-package Bilstein suspension

I've swapped over to Xida Clubsports and I don't need my stock setup anymore. They've done well for me, surprised me everytime I pushed the car and have held up amazingly.

94 R-package suspension.
Taken off at 192k miles
154# lb/in front, 94# lb/in rear spring-rates
13" inch front shock bodies, 9 1/2" inch rear shock bodies
Stock NA top-mounts
Stock bump-stops and boot covers.

You will need to do a few things for these to be 100% fuctional. Get them revalved! They will work ok without a re-valve, still absorbing bumps and rebounding. I would highly suggest a re-valve though, there's quite a few companies that can do such a job, FatCatMotorsports or Stewart Development are the first that come to mind.


Press out this cut bolt & sleeve, and the bushing itself. I would replace all the bushings on the shocks.


Replace the rear top-mounts, all four studs broke off when I was removing them.


I would also recommend some new bump-stops. Not that the stock ones are bad, but new ones with better technology will help the ride.


Boxed up, ready to ship!



I am asking $200 shipped OBO

Im interested on the shocks without springs and no top hats. Looks like the shock shaft threads are really rusted, will the nuts come off?
