If they are all in great condition, you could probably get more than $3k out of that part-out.
tranny i think is fine and engine

interior had normal bolster wear thats the only thing

^ hmmm really

the way i see it the only difference would be having adjustable springs? or am i wrong.. would comfort change a lot even if i already have bilstein shocks?

well, i have pss9's and i set it up to be pretty stiff... i went down my driveway and was shocked how stiff the suspension was...


plus you can go lower compared to your current setup so that's just a no brainer right there.

^ yeah i do want it a little lower in the rear... but the main reason is probably improving comfort

some local guy is selling new PSS for 850.. not sure if i should hold out for coils with adjustable dampening tho

i told him 800 and i'll do it.. he said to give him a few days

i'm just worried i'll be kicking myself later on for not getting adjustable dampening.... just like how i regret getting springs instead of coils in the first place lol

i never messed with my dampening either

i'd say 90% of people don't adjust it after they find a setting they like
