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.

    This is a pic of when I had the collars about half way down for the initial trial. Yesterday I spun them all the way down to the bottom before they spin off the assembly.???Click image for larger version

      Heres a pic of mine after about 20 miles of driving. I didnt like the fact that the rear was still lower that the front so i adjusted them all the way up. The rear was just too soft. So I reinstalled my old springs and it looks perfect. Handles great. Great value for sure

            That sleeve should go down into the stock spring perch much further. It may need to come off again. It looks like the outer sleeve that the spring sits on is not down all the way down on the threaded sleeve goes into the stock strut tube. Its been so long since i installed mine i don't quite remember. IIRC i had something on backward and after i installed the upper strut mount it looked similar to yours and i had to take it all apart and figure out what happened...

              I think you have the threaded adjuster upside down. You spring shouldn't be nearly that compressed. Take it apart, cut off the factory spring perch, put some rubber o-rings on (trust me, you'll love this when you go to adjust it), and slide the adjuster with the open end down over the strut tube. If you already did all this then idk what's up.

                  +1 ^^ upside down adjuster. I did the same thing with mine the first time.

                  Any word on getting a kit together for E34's?

                    I definitely did this backwards... I'm pulling it back into my shop and flipping it. I should be an expert at this by now (chuckle). Thanks for the replies.

                      Once I cut off the perch, where should I put these O rings? I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this, but if it makes my life easier I'm all for it.

                        For anyone doing anything spring/shock/top hat/spring mount related, you should know that you don't need to remove the strut from the car to change springs/inserts/top hats/mounts etc. just unbolt the swaybar endlink to let the suspension droop all the way and unbolt everything at the top. Insert goes out the top of the strut tower, and everything else can come right off the side.

                        Most of you know this, but for those who don't, it will save you some serious time + wear and tear on your balljoint boots.

                          I think it's a good idea to splurge on some lithium white grease to make adjustments easy in the future

                            I would advise against the lithium grease, all its going to do is attract dirst, dust, sand and everything else. If you want to make adjustments in the future make sure you spray some brake cleaner on the threads and/or compressed air, maybe some wd40 but dont use grease.

                                In case you haven't figured it out, they go under the adjuster sleeve that slips over the strut housing. This stops the whole assembly from spinning when you go to adjust it. My PO didn't do that and now I have to hold the adjuster in place with a channel lock while I adjust it.
