Above that are JRZ, Motons, etc., but that's overkill.
JRZ's are used on the dinan kits But what about GC?

I'll play devil's advocate for a moment. Let's say he is trying to exhaust all of the assets before the divorce is finalized. That would explain the lower sale value (A good Lawyer/CPA consultation would help him arrive at a magic plausible number) as well as the if you don't like it we'll pay for shipping. Could be plausible to exhaust any liquid assets and write it off later on taxes as a loss to him not her since that is an expense he occured. As far fetched as this may sound let's be honest lawyers have come up with crazier stuff and had it pass by a judge with an approving nod.

and they're usually cheaper. I heard of a spring mixup debacle a few months ago though. They stuck xi springs on RWD coils and a bunch of people were mad because ride heights were all off.

GC slipped my mind. They're good, too. Basically customized Konis with Eibach springs.


Definitely crossed my mind and that's exactly what the scammer is hoping the mark will conclude.

e-mail him/her and tell them you're ready to buy. Ask what the next step is. They will most likely email you an invoice or have you setup an account to a fraudulent escrow. It may be hard to spot or laughably obvious. Most the time, they aren't looking to fool smart people.

Truth.
If you're too smart, you're not a good mark. Not enough payoff for effort.
