Default What To Do With Tein Coilovers?

Hi when I bought my R package the Tein Coilovers in the rear were blown. I am having a new set of Tein Flex installed today. I am wondering what to do with the old set is it worth to have them rebuilt?

What set is it and we can tell you if it is worth it to have them rebuilt. It may be worth more to sell them as is and let someone else worry about getting them rebuilt. Rebuilds from Tein are $100 a shock I believe. I haven't checked in a while though.

I'd be interested if they're cheap. I can get Tein's rebuilt about 15 minutes away.

I don't have the paperwork from the coilovers in the car but I do know that they are height adjustable and the shocks are adjustable also. And I do know that they are compatible with the electronic adjustment unit. They do look like they could use some TLC but after riding with my new ones today they are worth rebuilding for someone.
