Not to be "that guy," but you can get brand new Moog coils shipped for cheaper than that. Just a heads up.

That being said, your price for the whole shebang is more than reasonable. Highly recommended setup for people who don't want to invest in coilovers. GLWS! :thumbsup:

Bump for a great deal. I sold my old 5100's an 08 4x4 coil setup with over 40k on them for $250 on craigslist.

Everything is new, in box. You won't find any new oem nissan coil springs for under 75 a piece. I think 80 for both is fair. But whatever. I have over 400$ in parts and am trying to give someone a decent deal. I'm not going to give it away. I'll give it to my friend for free, if no one needs it.

You can definitely get the $200 for it, so I would not suggest you "give it away" by any means. I'm just saying you'd probably have a hard time separating them and selling the springs for any more than $60 or so, just to save your time. Moogs are widely considered to be superior quality, for less than your asking price. It's fairly common knowledge that many "new oem" parts are overpriced. Ask someone if they'd take a "new oem" set of manifolds over some "new aftermarket" jba headers. Considering the difference in both price, and quality, I feel the answers would be fairly one sided.

I got my oem coils for $47 and change after a coupon I used and the price matched an online deal. Maybe they only charged me for one but gave me 2.. I dunno but I wasnt complaining and got my 5100's from desert rat a local 4x4 parts store in tempe for $200 after tax. They price match a online deal also. All in all id say I got lucky

New oem springs and manifolds are 2 different things. What makes you think that moog springs are better than nissan springs? But regardless, it really doesn't matter to me. I don't have much to gain.

Ditch the sway bar?? why?
It allows your suspension to work more independently. Better at lower speeds, particularly over ruts, bumps, etc, but not as good at high speeds. It adds a degree of instability through corners as it allows your rig to roll/sway more from side to side.

But yeah I understand they're two different things, I was just using it as an example. OEM isn't necessarily always better. The moogs are hands down beefier springs, as I've had them side by side multiple times. The spring rate is fairly consistent as well from what I can recall. Either way, Moog or OEM is a good option if people want stiffer springs for a lift, my bottom line was that Moogs are cheaper, and come recommended highly to boot.

As far as beefy goes, stock springs are plenty "beefy." I'm kind of interested in your theory, though. Show me some proof of what you're talking about. Thanks.
