    Hey David,

    What mileage on the shocks?

    Do they need a rebuild or are the good to go?

    Thanks.

    Hi, I can't remember exactly but I think is was about 50,000 miles. They have been stored so I cannot guarantee they are good to go but there was no problem with them on the car I just changed them for Ranchos.

    Are you still in the UK?

    Going to be pricey to ship to the USA i would guess.

    Yes I think they may be too expensive to ship to the USA I was thinking of asking $200 for them so I guess with shipping on top that makes them expensive.

    I can confirm that the cost of shipping can easily outweigh their intrinsic value. I tried to GIVE AWAY a set of 4 OEM shocks and the shipping cost to the mid-west from the east coast was exorbitant. Pick-up is the only viable option.

    FYI, have four OEM shocks (one blown, one with broken top stud), and four Rancho RS9000X shocks (all good) available to the first soul willing to pick up.

    Thanks, I guess it would only be viable in the UK then. Given the rarity of the VX in the UK they might just be what someone is desperately looking for.

    I shipped a set from TX to CO to get rebuilt...about $75 shipping business to business. They are heavy but it you zip tie them compressed they can fit into a reasonable size container.
