Default SoCal:MSM Bilstein w/Ground Control NB tophats

Item is located in Oxnard CA

Im going to Tein Flex that is why I am selling these.

Currently I am doing picked up only, until I can find suitable packaging at which time I will open it up to shipping at buyers cost.

-MSM Bilstein with Ground Control coil over kit and NB top hats. $500
No leaks or unusual corrosion
-The previous owner said he did 18k miles and I have put 10k miles on the shocks and top hats my self, so say about 30k for the shocks and top hats.

-The Ground Control system has about 10k miles on it with spring rates of 440F/300R

Yes they will fit both NA and NB, this is being sold as a complete ready to bolt in package, No Part outs
I would consider trades for 6ULs and nothing else

pics on the car, Ill take more when they come off and clean them up

It wasn't too bad on really bumpy roads, its not ride like a cadillac.... But then again I have a fully poly bushing kit in my car so its hard to say and to compare to rubber bushing cars.

I had no real complaints with it I just wanted to go to something moar adjustable.

on these pics its at F-12 R-12.75 hub to fender, those are 15x8 +20ET.

are you looking for something more adjustable so you can get more drop ?? or are you needing to change camber with more adjustable rebound. are thoose 205 45's on your rims ?? looks like you have plenty of room under there. how much adjustment left (down) in the spring perch...I saw the picture and looks like another inch or so ?? assuming thats how they were in the picture ?? looking for a little lower stance with the new 15x8 with 195 50's. i would assume you never bottomed them out ? i have fm bars and poly bushings going in as well !!! thanks... sorry for all the questions just trying to do this so I will be happy the first time !!!!

The car has remained the same height across all pics in this thread.

The tires are 205/50.

I wouldn't bottom out the rears regular daily driving, I think I only bottomed out(noticeably hit bump stop) once going through a crazy dip in the road I didn't see till it was too late.

Personally I probably would not go any lower in the rear on a NA for sake of functional suspension stroke with out ISC or FM top hats.

No, i don't want more drop, I'm happy where i am currently. I wanted adjustable damping and always wanted to have a "true" complete aftermarket coilover. I love to tinker with stuff just to do it.

Worth it mod, Good luck on the bushing install it took me 12+ hours, of solid labor(excluding breaks). Word of advice, do zerk grease point while ur in there....
