Default Revalved Bilstein Hard S

I had these revalved for 700/400 springs. Kenny at Hendricks shocks said he also added some bleed or whatever......I installed 650/450 springs but never mounted them on my car! These have zero miles since rebuild. I am looking for $850obo

What valving did he use? Target damping curve? Were these dynoed? What year tophats come with it? What bumpstops?

I will have to get back to you with the details of the valving as I don't speak that language. I told him how I wanted them to perform, gave him a dyno chart of what I wanted them to be like and trusted him to do his thing. They were not dynoed, he sold his dyno and his new one hasn't come in yet. Just my luck! He has access to another dyno and I am sure I can get them dynoed but kind of feel like my price reflected the lack of empirical data...

99 10AE bump stops and top hats. I have a set of FCM bumpstops in my other set I could ad to these if someone wanted.

The Xida's. I believe it was the gray line on the dyno chart on 949's website? I talked with someone who I trust to give me good advice and that is what they recommended. Kenny has revalved thousands of these and listened to what I said as well as looked in his notes as to what he has done for this set up in the past.

And the cheap Ebay sleeves fit great and are quite impressive on quality! I know a lot of people have had fitment issues with the sleeves but these fit great.

Are you just resting the eBay sleeves on top of the snap rings or do these sleeves actually fit over them like the ground control setups?

They fit tight and are resting on the snap rings. They also have three set screws to keep the sleeve centered. The sleeves fit very close, 0.60mm total clearance so 0.30mm on each side. The sleeves do not rest on the top of the shock body.

Do you still have the fcms? Mainly wondering because I'd need to compensate for the shock travel in my na and would need the fcms for that. If you still have them i'd be interested in the setup.
