B&G Lowering Springs and MRZ Strut Caps

I upgraded to coilovers so I'm selling my B&G drop springs and MRZ strut caps.

DISCLAIMER!!! The front coil springs have one full coil cut off of them to help compensate for the reverse rake that B&G springs have. My car still sat slightly lower in the back this way.

With the front springs cut is causes the strut to not be "loaded". In other words if the spring can flop around on the strut when the weight of the car is not on them. Such as when you lift the car without supporting the wheels it can make the springs move and they may not be seated properly along with the bearings when you sit the car back down. I always lifted the car while keeping the suspension loaded both front and rear. I also made limiting straps in the rear to help prevent the rear springs from moving.

Other than that these springs get you LOW for cheap. I used my factory FE1 suspension with no problems.

Struts and shocks not included, this is just the springs.

Here is an example of what happens when the strut extends without keeping the spring compressed...




and here are the springs in good shape, The rears have some paint scrubbed off from rubbing themselves, it can't be prevented with these springs...



And here are the strut caps, I powder coated them satin black, they have one or two very small chips on them, very minor.








Asking $95 shipped for the springs.

Asking $40 shipped for the strut caps.



This is how my car sat with the B&G springs..





PM me, I will take PM's in the order I receive them.
