Btw I am still interested in the rear if you come down.
True, not that I don't trust a lot of the forum members. A swaybar is something that doesn't get a whole lot of wear, but the endlinks do wear out. Regardless, for a few bucks more, why not purchase new.

It's amazing how cheap some ppl are on this forum but they drive a BMW. Anyways GLWS
You should just install them then. I'm not trying to low ball anyone, it's not like I'm making the OP some ridiculous low offer - I simply declined to purchase because I'd rather pay a bit more for a new set. Not purchasing and low balling are completely different things I think.

On the other hand, one could argue "It's amazing how cheap some sellers are on this forum but they drive a BMW." I could easily say that sellers are the ones being cheap and trying to get like 85% value out of their used parts. It's a matter of perspective. I don't think the seller is a cheap skate, what he wants to get out of his parts is what he wants to get. I didn't want to buy at that price, it's that simple.

Yeah - Tire Rack has them for $292 (was $287 when I declined to buy yesterday) plus $16 to ship. So I can get it now for $308. In fact, I think I'll get it now before it's out of stock since there's only 3 left.

EDIT: Nevermind, tire rack is still $287. It's the H&R which is $292. So it's $303 shipped to me.
