      Title says it all. I bought these from another vortex member in November of last year. The fronts were brand new in the box because of a replacement under warranty and he never reinstalled them. The rears are in great shape and function 100% as expected. I did order new gen2 springs for the rear since the old ones looked collapsed. This is typical with the gen1 springs and the new ones have a different design. I paid $1,100 for them and then dropped another $200 on the gen2 springs. I've literally only used them for the ride from NJ --> NC for witw and small trips around town. They are an awesome setup for dallying. I'm looking for $1100 picked up.

      You can see my build thread for pics and additional info on the gen2 springs.

      These are currently installed, but since I dont daily the car. If and when they sell, I'll pull them within the day.

      I'm 20 min from waterfest if you're driving this way and want a nice suspension for your R.

      No one wants these? Everything is basically new other then the rear struts. I'll do $1000 firm if I can peak some interest.

      Ok the car is up on stands and might be there for the next 2 weeks because of my schedule. Someone should really take this opportune time to buy them from me. I even have a nice set of K-Mac camber plates that I would give you a steal of a deal on. Let's go!

      Something came up and I need cash fast. if someone can come pick up the suspension in the next couple days I'll do $900 just to get rid of it. After this I'll be going back to 1k firm.

      How would these impact the wear and life of the tires?

      It really depends on how low you plan to go. The lower you go the more negative camber you add which leans the top of the tire in. If youre riding around slammed you'll need to correct the geometry via some camber plates and rear lower control arms. If youre just looking for better handling and a moderate drop you'd prolly get away with not even needing rear lower arms. Some neg camber is good for handling and you really won't see any abnormal wear. I'm at -1.5 in the front and -1 in the rear. Shoot me a pm or text if you need anymore info.
