Default H&R race coilovers for mini cooper S trade for stock

I have a set of H&R race coilovers that I wanna trade for stock suspension.

I have a shop that's local called helix in PA that can help us with the switch.


I'm located in NJ and PA area.

Thanks
kerry

buyer handles switch out? if it's done by a shop that ain't right. you're gonna have to split the cost man, half the labor is your car's labor.

I don't forsee these being sold anytime soon. I sold my Megans for $500 plus a someone else's stock parts. I took them off of my car, took his off of his car, installed the OEM on mine, and helped him put the Megans on his. He was interested in learning how to do the job so that's the only reason this worked out like it did. Best of luck finding someone willing to do that much work or foot the bill for it all.

Fair deal i feel... Willing to work with buyer on the switch out of the parts. all depends on price. I know what it will cost a buddies shop of mine to do it.

That's awesome.

I can't do it myself no garage and tools but have a very good local shop that can help.


Eric over at helix is great. he could do the swap out.

Thanks

They will fit the R56 as long as you purchase the rear bushing spacers which can be found at any of the major MINI aftermarket vendors, including Helix where Getz has his car worked on.

That depends on the coilover. Some have the bushing built into the bottom where the bolt goes through, some do not on the r56, and ALL r53 coilovers do not. So if the bottom bushing is not in place on the bottom eyelet, yes it will fit r53s. (i was edumacted on that here )

Still available. The car will be gone soon so would rather hook someone up with these instead of giving them to the dealer ship when i trade the car.


Thanks

What kind of mileage is on them? I'm located about half-an-hourish from Helix.
