Great deal on Bilstein shocks

Motorsports Auctions has front and rear OEM Bilstein pairs, brand new, for 90. These are the ones for the S1 NAs. They also have a few sets of the rears for the S1 S models at the same price.

The rears normally go for about 450 per!

Just thought I'd pass it along (after getting a set myself, of course ). At these prices, even with shipping they're likely cheaper than getting my stock ones rebuilt when the time comes.
2011 chrome orange and esseye like this.

No mention of build date, but I did send off an inquiry. I did check to make sure these weren't superseded with a newer part #, so at least they're not out-of-production parts.

If nothing else, at least I'll have another set on hand, so even if they needed to get rebuilt before install, I wouldn't be out of commission while I'm waiting.

Cool, I was not aware these were rebuildable.
