    Coilovers or the stock struts?


    I replaced my blown 05 STI struts with Feal 441 Coilovers...so I have the blown stock ones just laying around. You can send them out to be rebuilt for a decent price (much cheaper than anything you can find to replace what we have for STIs, especially since there really are no aftermarket strut options...)

    Let me know what you think...I'd sell em for a cheap price

    Ahhhhh ok...getting back to your other post...it took me a moment to realize you checked it out twice.

    Bottom line is...as much as I want to sell them, you don't want my stock struts.

    Well you don't want to just replace two KWs. It's pretty much impossible to do that anyway. Not really anyone sells just two coilovers out of a set of 4 anyway. You're gonna want to get them rebuilt...so I'd contact KW directly and see if they offer a service to rebuild like a lot of coilover companies do. If you don't want to do this, then figure out a solution to replace all four corners with the same type of setup, at the same time.

    Yeah hopefully they wont be an arm and a leg. I guess the oil just came out of them or something from what the dealership told me. The washers i guess busted, but I'll ask them how much it would be to rebuild them. Thing is I don't wanna pay someone to take the damn things off then back on. Gonna be alot more money that way you think?

    Take them off yourself. It's easy.

    Sounds to me like you don't know entirely what you're working with here. If you pull the rears off to get a rebuild, then the car is going to be inoperable. Usually takes a week or two turnaround time for a rebuild from anywhere (longer depending on where you need to ship them). Dealer isn't going to know squat about how much or anything about how to rebuild coilovers. I can pretty much guarantee you that.

    If you have another car to drive you're fine then.

    But if you have down time, how much is that down time worth to you? You can either replace all 4 corners with new coilovers of some kind which would cost anywhere from $1000-$3000 for parts alone, plus alignment.

    Or you can purchase spring/strut combos, which are very difficult to find due to the lack of actual aftermarket struts available for 05-07 STIs...and replace all 4 corners. If you were to buy stock units from the dealer...you're looking at $1200+ labor easy. They charge an arm and a leg for the stock components.

    Or you could buy a set of used struts/springs that you could find that may or may not be in good condition, then replace all 4 corners, sell KWs to recoup the money.

    Or you could buy a set of blown used struts/springs and have them rebuilt while you can still drive your car until they come back to you ready to put on. Then sell the KWs to recoup the money (someone WILL buy KWs cause they are a known quality brand of Coilover).
