      None are blown. They all still feel firm. The rear perches are frozen, but a little elbow grease should loosen them up. I just pulled them so i didn't put much effort in getting them free. I have them soaking in penetrating oil and i'll try and smack them loose. The fronts are fine.

      One rear spring is broken from corrosion. You will need to source a pair of replacements. I think you can get koni springs through Vogland but they should be easy to find. *edit* i purchased new springs, should be here shortly*

      I'll work on cleaning them up in the meantime.

      price edit

      $600 picked up . I am NOT shipping these. Cash talks. Located near philadephia.

      Brand new rear springs



      rear collars are freed up. Threads are wire wheeled clean. tubes with a fresh single stage paint after being stripped.





      Buyer isn't contacting me back. so at the moment they are still for sale! make me an offer before the weekend! i'll be more motivated to sell.

      probably going back up. i am trying to get the invoice for them when i bought them 10 years ago so they can have a warranty through me if there are issues.

      I posted on your Audizine ad also. I was wondering if the silver end of the rear struts looks like it unscrews off the cylinder rod. I know it has some come apart somehow. Can you snap a photo of that area?

      yes it does. you need a special tool to loosen the jam nut. then you can spin it all the way down till it bottoms out on the threads on the rod. Then you can continue to put pressure on the bolt and the bushing end can should break free with little effort. This will give you access to the adjustment knob.

      Still not interested in shipping them?

      I want to remove the silver end and put on my own mount. Is that possible? Busy this weekend? If I get my TDI out of limp mode, I could swing down there.

      i have a sale pending, but this weekend is no good anyways.

      I had to take apart an old set of konis and i machined to parallel flats on a 22mm socket, then machined a channel down so it can fit around the shaft. Then I used an adjustable wrench to break the jam nut loose.
