Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
DAMPER SET SOLD


AST 4100's, original owner sold them to me since his car was coming up on the end of his lease. e82 and e9x (non-m) are the same kit by the way.

$1,400

I'm selling because I'm moving into a dedicated e36 racecar and a different daily driver of some kind.

These are still in the boxes direct from AST, as all four are freshly rebuilt. Tim (original owner) had these made for him with 550# front, 600# rear, spec'd that way for him by BR Racing in California. Hyperco springs.

Springs are included in price. Your other option is to swap the rears with swift springs that I bought (784# i believe is the conversion), but I wouldn't recommend it without upgraded rear subframe bushings (recommendation given to me by both TC Kline website, and my BMW guy who installed my diff for me).

I grabbed swift thrust sheets that I'll include as well, AST height adjusters, and if I can find them in my parts bin, AST cable adjusters for the rear. I'm moving currently, so though I'm busy, I'll also *have* to take inventory pretty soon on all my stuff.

Also available, Vorshlag camber plates. BR put a new bearing in it, and Vorshlag has since looked them over and blessed as their true bullet-proof selves. They look aged (looked exactly like this when i got them from Tim), but like I said, Vorshlag blessed. Figured to start the plates at $225.

I'll ship at buyer's expense. I'm in the NW suburbs of Chicago, and will be travelling to Columbia MO this Saturday (November 3rd), so things actually along that path could be a delivery.

I can post pics of the boxes, but I'd rather not open them unless a serious buyer has expressed real interest. Fresh rebuilt from AST looks less "fresh" when the box is opened.

I have top nuts of a few varieties for the camber plates, the stock top mounts as well.

The rest is in "make an offer" stage

Still on the car but soon to come off...

Just cleared space in my PM box, apologies...

I'll follow-up when I get the Strut Brace off the car. I might be too busy to do that this weekend, lots of unpacking/shopping/and waiting on Direct TV going down...

I'm local, let me know what you want the items picked up. More or less these items as I can not afford your suspension at the moment but would love to take it.

Give me a price on these picked up

Brain fart, these are Velocity Motorcars Endlinks, which they don't make anymore. let me take a look at them for condition. I think I paid $115, they were used on the car, so more like %50 retail, call it $55 once i get them in hand and look them over again, might drop the price if they seem more weathered than I remember
M3 convertible front sway-bar
Never Installed, just need to find what corner in the garage it went to, and make sure I can get my hands on the bushings and mounts too. I'm 99% sure of where they are, just need to confirm it. Nevery installed, 80% retail, call it $210
Front control arms with offset delrin bushings pressed in
Test fit on a Texas car, never installed in Illinois... Figure the retail price for the arm is pretty good. $100 per
Front tension arms
Poly bushings for front tension arms
Never installed, retail would be about $300, so a little bit of a discount on 80% would be 230. Sounds about right for the set. For now, any individual part of the set, 80%. $80 for each arm, $80 for the bushings only.
See above for my responses in red.

Yes, I still have the OS Giken diff. Right now I'm still considering my options. I might uninstall it and sell it just an a used unit. I might keep it to eventually put in a 325is (same unit between the cars).

The other option is if someone wants to swap whole Carriers. This is a steptronic carrier with the shorter final gear. I've been told by a couple of people (including the Berk race team) that the Carriers swap directly from Manual to Steptronic.

Option two, I'd be looking for the other party to cover Labor for Carrier Swaps +$cash. (Carrier Swap also saves both parties on Diff Oil, though a diff oil change on my carrier should probably happen in the next 6 months/5,000 miles)

Just a quick update, I don't have internet at home for awhile. I don't have much time at work to pop in, but it'll be my only avenue for a bit.

I have AST bump stops, brand new, never installed that some with the set too. The strut adjuster knobs are also brand new.

Do you have pictures of the suspension "package"?

Also, would you happen to be going back to COMO anytime soon?


edit: just noticed your line about not wanting to crack open the boxes.

I do have pictures of the assorted other stuff, it's just the dampers themselves that are in boxes still from AST.

No, I don't think I'll be coming through anytime soon. It was a crazy long drive to try to do back and forth in a day.
