if you want me to try and ship them, i can get quotes for shipping / insurance.

it's not that i'm not willing to ship the bulky items, just that i don't know how.

shoot me a pm if you're serious.

You feel like a pain in the butt, but places like FedEx will professionally package for you if you bring them the parts. We use them for wheels all the time because packaging is always the annoying part of selling your old stuff.

Of course! Haha. I do have a couple quick questions:

are the larger springs for another model? Or higher spring rate?

Do u know of any way to adjust the rears without dropping the whole strut assembly?

Did you ever notice a knocking sound when going over bump on the front drivers side (it's not rubbing anywhere on the front)

Did you ever notice a rubbing sound (almost metalic) on the front passenger side when turned all the way left?

Thanks man!
Matt

Do u know of any way to adjust the rears without dropping the whole strut assembly? you mean the spring collars? i adjusted them while installed on the car, but they were a bitch. i had to pull the ebrake cable out of the way and would get a pretty small rotation before hitting the muffler. again, that was on the clubman; i have no clue what the underside of an R53 would be like. taking them off would probably be the easiest for you.

they never gave me any noises, but your descriptions sound like something's not quite tightened down all the way. i would remove the strut and make sure the spring was properly set, then check the nut on the tophat, then reinstall and double check all mounting connections (swaybar, shock tops in the engine bay, etc). as for the rubbing, if the spring is properly set on the collar and you've eliminated that as a possible source, could it be your wheel and tire combo? i know with my challenge spokes i had to use 5mm spacers to ensure the wheel/tire didn't hit the strut. alternatively at full lock the tire could be hitting the wheel well / arch. like i said, they were whisper quiet for me, but those are some common checks i've heard work for other people.

Thanks man!
Matt
