If some ******* would send me my 250s, I could sell a pair of 7" 550 and 300s.

Exactly. My **** is not slammed. I'm nowhere NEAR riding on bump-stops. They're nice.

I'm sure if I slammed it, took out helper springs, and had 2mm of travel they would be bouncy though. Hell: any coilovers would be at that retarded level lol

I've been driving on them all winter on non 0 offset rims, WITH the helper srpins (all the cr ------s remove them), and at a fairly NON-SLAMMED height.

Do I count? lol

Yeah, you're the one...waiting for one more (more than one positive review).

I'm convinced you got the golden set they kick out every other Tuesday.

No idea honestly. The endcap on the piston end of the shock body looks like it MIGHT be screwed in. If it is, vise grips might work.

Also I have no idea if they are gas charged or not.

I dont know... 220 for coil overs? The had to cheap on something. Someone in the SA area lets me drive they're car, It might change my mind. I have RB sways and suspension of a MSM, so i will stay tuned. I hope they rock and i could just drop 220 and be done.

They are a cartridge type shock, meaning you can run Koni inserts. A bunch of the Bimmer guys are doing this to make a cheap 8611? coilovers.

The only thing that bothers me is the weld on the mounting bung.

No, i meant to say IF someone in SA has these, i would like to drive them. 220 isnt that much, but at the same time, i don't want to waste it on a failure of suspension set up. But the rates would work if i lost the rear bar (its half lost anyways.)
