  1. Eibach 700 front springs
  2. Eibach 450 rear springs
  3. SD Tuned Bilsteins
  4. Ground Control Coilovers
  5. NB Tophats

$750 OBO. I can have them rebuilt for $400 professionally.

Are these originally for NAs or NBs?
Bilstein + Silver = OEM MSM prior to the tuning???

The shocks were originally from a 2004 MSM.

This is almost the exact setup that I have in my car. Slightly softer springs, but not by much, and that's the only difference. It's a fantastic setup! And worth every penny he's asking for it if you can rebuild the dampeners.

When SD did the revalve, were they set up for these spring rates? Does "tuned for track duty" mean really really stiff shocks? The pictures are down, btw.

Thanks, apparently there was some re-organizing in that photo folder. Here is a current folder link:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bjrl89oyqjw62k1/itk6QA2AKX

The prior owner of the car had the shocks valved to the springs and was trying to achieve spec Miata response for track duty. They handled very well before they started to lose significant fluid and worked reasonably well on the street too.

Price drop to $600. Just want move them out of garage and need to sell a few other things but just doing it a few pieces at a time.

It turns out the local place can't work on the sealed Bilsteins so if there are no takers in the next week or two I will just send them off to Bilstein themselves to be rebuilt and sell them as freshly rebuilt units.

The shocks, springs, tophats and ground control coilovers are great. I am only selling because I went to the $2700 setup with Xidas & spherical tophats.
