WTT: My H&R Cup Kit for your suspension, for FREE

*For Bay Area or SoCal only*

I put on an H&R cup kit just under 23K miles (almost all freeway, no track) ago. The suspension is awesome...amazing handling that can't even compare to my stock suspension. The main problem is that since I had the kit installed my driving habits have changed. I'm a college student and have to deal with lots of speed bumps on a daily basis. Essentially I love the suspension, but it is just impractical right now. Ex: the driveway to my house is so ridiculously angled that I scrape every day, which just never feels good. Also, the ride is worse than my premium suspension for sure. It is a lot better than any of my friendís cars that have coilovers, but anytime you drop a car with a tight suspension you're not going to have the same luxury feel.

Anyways, if anyone is interested I would like to trade the cup kit for your stock sports suspension, preferably with under 50K miles on it. I would like to just meet at a shop and have the suspensions swapped. All that I ask is that you pay for the labor (I paid $160 to have mine installed at a very reputable shop, so I would think $300 would be the most you should expect to pay). I live in Palo Alto right now, but will be traveling to SoCal sometime in the next few weeks. If you would like to upgrade your swaybars at the same time I can probably toss you some $$ for your used ones.
If you are interested shoot me an email at lppartofmesb@yahoo.com or send me a PM (email would be better). If paying for the entire swap would be a problem, still send me a message and we might be able to work something out.

I looked through the forums quickly and found that used cupkits are going for somewhere between $450-550, but really I don't want to actually sell this. It is definitely worth the price difference just for the convenience of not having to deal with shipping or any of the other hassle.

PN: 31019-1
The suspension will fit both Sedans and Coups. Here is a link to the kit:

Also note: The kit fit onto my non-sport suspension without any modification, but I was told that it was for a sport suspension (I wanted a better aka lower drop). That, along with the PN, is all I know, but I'm sure you can find out if it will fit with a quick search.

Sorry for the late response, I was out of town for the weekend, but this kit is already taken. Thank you all for the emails and messages.

On another note:
Talked to H&R, for everyone's own knowledge the two kits are exactly the same (sport vs non-sport). The only difference is the part number that H&R attaches to the two kits (the employee was not sure but said it was likely so that they could judge demand by model). So, there is absolutely no difference between the two kits except the PN printed on the box. Hope that helps.

I also talked to an H&R guy and he told me the same thing. Both sport vs non-sport are the same.
