yeah there is a lot of chance you are taking when not buying new AND paying with no return policy, sending money to someone you dont know can be held liable to ship ect.


Btw I am still interested in the rear if you come down.

No kidding, it's like no one even prices them out new. They just want it for 50% of what you ask no matter what you advertise for.....amazing.

As a general rule of thumb, used parts are priced at 50% of new price.

I agree .... Just like a new car as it rolls off the dealer's parking lot.

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.

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.

EDIT - Just bought one. Free shipping

Must be my lucky day. Tire Rack held my order because there was a fraudulent charge with my account in March and they left me a voicemail to make sure it was a legitimate charge. Looks like I can get it from bavauto instead.

Weird, no free shipping for me though...

EDIT: Thanks, picked one up and canceled through TR. Still cheaper even without free shipping.

Shipping was free to NY. Guess it's not to CA.

Nice. Shipping to CA was $45 since bavauto is on the East Coast. Still, good deal. Sorry OP, can't beat the price from them.

Amazon does, but they raised the price since I last got them.
