Any locals need suspension?

Anybody in the area want a suspension setup that is only a year old.

KYB GR-2's
Eibach Pro-Kit Springs


They are yours for cheap.
You can either take them out yourself and throw me some cash or pay for it at a shop and throw me a little cash.

I'm not looking for much here, just trying to get back to stock ASAP.

If I buy the SVT I'm looking at this weekend I may take them off your hands. I was going to keep the SVT mostly stock but the word cheap got my interest. How cheap are we talking if I take them out? Do you have the stock springs to put in? because I can put them in for you.

Why?
-I'm looking for a different car, this one with a manual. I really want a Focus so I can keep some of my parts. My first choice is an 03-04 2.3L Duratec (about 50-60K), second choice is an SVT (under 70K). If I can't find one, then I might settle for a Zetec, but only if it is flawless and has all the bells and whistles. So far I'm having a hard time, so I'm also looking at an Ion Redline, Civic SI Hatch, GTI VR6, Altima 2.5S, and Sentra SE-R SpecV.

For the susension, I don't know what the going rate for lightly use suspension is. I paid $350 for it brand new plus $180 install, I'm thinking I would like to get $200 but I'm open to any offers.

Yes I still have my stock suspension to put back in (with less than 20K on it, woot woot). That is part of the deal, you take these out and put my stock back in. I can help but I wouldn't be able to do it myself so I don't know how much of a help I would be.


-There is an SVT in Rhode Island for a decent price, looks like OK shape. BUT it may have been beaten on so I have to check it out and see if the warrenty can be transfered.

good luck...

if your looking at new or a 1 year old car don't rule out the MazdaSpeed 3. I know a few people that love there Mazda 3 and putting the "speed" on the name just makes it better.

no no no no no.not "new" new. new to me. i cant afford anything a new car. the very most I can spend is $10,000 and that is being generous and stretching my money as thin as possible. I'm really only looking to spend $8,500 tops no way I can get even a Mazda3 let alone a Speed3.

too rich for my blood right now, especially if I get an SVT. Good luck with the search. If you don't mind a drive up to NH I could swap em out for you so you could ship them if nobody here bites.
