Possible bilstien group buy

I'm interested in setting up a bilstien group buy. I would like to know who would be interested in going in on this if I can put it together, and what setups would be most desired. I spoke to a sales rep at eshocks.com and they said they would be able to offer a discount depending on how many sets are needed and what part numbers we would be looking for. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the info, and those prices are good but I was thinking more specifically about bilstien sports or even coilover setups because the prices are significantly higher.

I would definitely be in on some coilovers but I'm looking to buy something really soon (like the next couple of days) since my wheels and 2 tires came in today and I'm just waiting on 2 more tires.

If we get enough people interested we can make it happen soon. I doubt they would offer us much of a discount, if any at all if just a few are in tho.

If it isn't lowered but you want a stiffer ride than stock the heavy duty is best. Sports are stiffer than stock too but are better matched with lowering springs.

Did they say how much savings could be achieved by numbers? Like 10 people saves you 100$ 20 saves you 200$ and so forth?
