Default WTB: Shocks, Koni/Bilstein/etc

Looking for some good shocks for this season. I'm leaning heavily toward a FCM setup, but I wanted to see what used stuff is out there before I pull the trigger.

I need something that will handle 550-700 spring-rates, so standard Koni yellow's valving wouldn't handle it very long. Standard Bilsteins wouldn't like those rates either. So I'm looking for some revalved Koni's, revalved Bilsteins, Koni race, or the like. I'm also open to a GOOD coilover setup like Tein Flex, AFCO's, XIDA clubsports( ), etc.

I'm looking for NB shock mounts(top-hats) as well. FCM's shock mounts are one pretty penny and I wish I would of kept the NB top-hats I had two years back, lol.

This is the last time I suggest wayne_curr's shocks. Apparently there's a big conspiracy against buying an amazing setup.

He sold them today, I was going to buy them :(. I've been exchanging PM's with him the past month or so. I would LOVE to buy something like his though.

Good for him! I had no idea why $2000 xidas were been bought instead of his comparable $1200 setup.

It's all good, no worries.

I ended up ordering Xida Clubsports yesterday, lol.
