Weird. I dont thin bilstein makes springs unless you are reffering to their coilover systems. Is this set used?

It seems VERY sketchy. The $619 seems reasonable price for the shocks/struts alone, but what makes me wonder is why he is only charging $36 for shipping. Seems a bit on the cheaper side.

I dont know what bts sports mean but bilstein sport shocks might be different. Visit www.turnermotorsport.com and check out their shocks/struts aswell as their coilover kits.

The BTS system is Bilstein's non coil-over system. Matched set of struts, shocks, and springs. The Shox site seems to have very good prices.

I just figured that out. I didnt even know bilstein made non-coilover springs. Which doesn't make sense because you would think they would match their springs and shock/struts up perfectly to be a sort of non-adjustable coilover system.

In any case I saw what you were talkign about last night on ebay.
