Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    Seat Shock Update !!

    I've been quite busy these last few months so wanted to bring everyone up to date. Since I started offering these I have tried to stay ahead of the demand and to always have stock on hand for immediate shipment. Sometimes this has been a challenge since either sales are cyclical or the factory takes a little longer to produce them.

    Throw in my busy schedule, volatile exchange rates and the potential for tariffs to kick in anytime and for the time being we should consider this a group buy with limited availability rather than an "always available" item. As they sell down I will reorder and based on production upgrades at the factory, I'm hopeful that new orders will arrive faster than they have been.

    The good news is that I have a fresh shipment on the ground in the US and they should be on hand in the next couple of days. The price for 2 sets (so 8 shocks) which will do 2 sport seats, will be US$139 including PP and US Priority Post. Canadian orders are plus USD25 and to most other countries is +$35. This usually includes international tracking but NO INSURANCE.

    I will be reaching out to those with active inquiries first, but please note I do not hold product so its 1st cash that gets shipped. I will of course refund any paid order if I do run out of stock.

    Thanks for the understanding and continued support.

    Bump for a great product. I just did mine yesterday. It’s not a “fun” job, but so nice to have properly functioning seats again!

      I have fresh shocks on hand for immediate shipment. Again, I only have so many for the time being and they are moving so if you want to do your seats before winter this would be a good time to grab some.

      Paid orders are packed and will get posted asap..

      Thanks

            Thats a strictly manual operation so no. What you describe is a broken release cable

                  And, generally speaking, should the seat be able to move up and down in height while the driver is sitting in it?

                    I am sold out of these and have no immediate plan to re order them. Sorry

                    They allow you to adjust your seat back using just the lever and they prevent the seat back from flopping backwards when you try to adjust it. If that happens while your driving it's a big safety issue.

                    Yes, but you should take your weight off the seat by grabbing the wheel as they are not THAT strong...again not something recommended while driving

                      Thanks. So is it a spring mechanism that raises the height of the seat?

                        There are 4 gas struts in each sport seat...2x450N for the seat bottom and 2x350N for the seat back. Comfort seats only have one for the seat back so you could buy one set (of 4) and do the omplete drivers seat plus the passenger seat back.
