I'm getting my car suspension done next week so the old gear is up for sale.

The car has done 290.000ks. The suspension is still very good and firm considering the Ks.

I'm not sure if it is Tickford suspension I hope someone could let me know.

I'll have 4 springs and 4 shocks for sale. It is for a V8 setup. Not sure how it will sit for a I6.

I'm after $350 for the whole lot.

Cheers

I'm in the northern suburbs of Perth.

By the looks of it i'm 99% sure its not tickford suspension. Mines got the tickford suspension and seems to sit noticeably lower.

Also explains why you haven't got the 16" tickford mags as from the factory you had to buy wheels and suspension together - quite a lot more $$$ on to the new price.

What suspension are you going for? Something custom or a set of lows/superlows?

Either Konis or Bilsteins with Lovells superlows plus camber kit.

By the way it did have a heavy duty tow kit on it which is why it sits a lot higher now because I got it removed. Must be 60+ kilos for that. Didnt sit as high as it does now when the tow kit was on there.

Update:

I've only got springs for sale because the shocks were rooted.

You should feel the ride now with the Bilsteins and Lovells. Mate it feels like a new car.

They are Tickford springs from what I was told be the suspension place.

Suited to a V8 only.

Offers....
