Ok so heres the deal. I just bought a used set of 05 wrx crucial racing sport springs. The only thing im wondering is...how do I know there not just the stock springs? The ones i bought are black and kinda dirty so i cleaned them up and they look like they could be after market but I cant tell until i take the stock springs off of my car. I read somewhere that crucial racing springs are blue, but maybe they come in black too? Also on one of the springs there was purple underneath the black paint? Im just hoping i did not buy a stock set. Anyone know how to tell if there legit without taking off my stock ones to compare?
thanks
hope this wasnt confusing

Also the springs do not say crucial racing anywhere on them or have anykind of serial number that i can see...

60 he was asking 80 but talked him down to 60
yeah...not sure about that. Doesn't even seem like crucial racing has a website that is up anymore to find out what the original pricing was. Honestly, its a crap shoot. I personally wouldn't buy used springs but thats just me. Anyone can pain springs and claim its something and on top of that, you never know how much wear the spring has endured.

I know i was kinda weary about buying used springs but ive only heard good reviews about the springs. Ya 60 was the most I was willing to pay for a set of used ones.

If you decide not to put them on and want a set of a new springs, let me know. I'll give you a good price and you'll be buying from someone reputable ;)

Sounds a little sketchy if you ask me.....

Crucial Racing springs are blue. Crucial Sport springs are black, but they have white markings in two places. Here's a picture of what they look like:
