Default how much for used BC Racing coilovers

Buddy is looking at selling some used BC Racing Coilovers and was wondering what a good price was. They have anywhere from 25-30k miles, are they worth investing in? if so what price?

new they were between 800-1000 depending where you bought them.

Id try to stay closer to 600 or so. you could pick up megans new for that and are more or less the same things.

If I can get new megans for the price of used bc racing I would much rather do that. I just want something I can have lowered on the streets but adjustable to take to my local road course track

I just wouldn't buy them, lol. You're better off buying Jake's Bilsteins with 350/??? springs.

My opinion is that you are $300 away from world class suspension.

Yeah, I see it, but I can't seem to get home and set-aside time to read personal email. Good news for you, my weekend starts tomorrow...after I hit the gun range tonight. Carpal tunnel bullshit keeps me away from the computer after-work.
