WTT/WTB e90x front struts/springs

After a ton of headaches & time wasted trying to find someone with the correct spring compressor I'm giving up.

I have 2 sets of OEM e90x front struts/springs:

1 pair off a 2011 335xi with around 20k miles with brand new upper & lower spring pads & bump stops
1 pair off a 2008 328xi with around 100k miles all original

Both pairs are not assembled & I don't have a dealer or shop in my area that has the spring compressor needed to put them back together. Aka I can't put the car back together & need a set of front struts or struts/springs that I can either use a standard spring compressor to assemble or are already pre-assembled.

I will trade both of the OEM sets, trade both sets + $, or pay for them flat out. I would prefer to off the 2 sets I can't use in the process but I am more concerned with getting the car back together & out of my girl's Mother's garage so I can look her in the eye again after lying to her and saying "I'll have this done in 2 days"...3 weeks ago.

Used sets are ok as long as the miles are low & they are in good working order. I would prefer to meet & do the deal in person to avoid wasting time shipping. I am located in the 17102 area code but am willing to drive a considerable distance to make this happen.

Please PLEASE contact me at 717-609-6805 if you can help me in any way.

Thank you,


Dave

i dont get the post, so you are selling two sets of stock springs and shocks for Xi models, and in return you want lowering coilovers? or just assembled OEM shocks with struts?

Sorry...just read your other thread. They SUCKS bro!! I've got a whole set of XI OEM stuff but all dismantled. Glad I ended up upgrading. This would have pissed me the F off.

Yea after going to 4 shops, 2 dealers, & 1 hell of a pain in the ass I decided to just buy the tool & do it myself.

If anyone knows of anybody looking for the tool. I'll have it up for sale shortly. For half off what I paid just to try to recoup some of the costs.
