    I have a 2008 GT vert and bought these to replace the stock absorbers at 50,000 miles. They are AMAZING if what you are looking for is a perfect handling track car, corners incredibly flat, high speed is amazingly stable, and the precision is perfect. However, if you have a convertible and you drive on bad roads, they are too firm for daily use, so I bought some adjustable Tokico shocks instead to soften things up. These shocks were driven for only 1800 miles. I'm asking $200 plus shipping (I live in Southern California if you'd rather come pick them up) which is way less than half what I paid for them.

    1800 miles. I think they should last at least 50,000 miles or so under normal use...

    Hi all,
    Sorry it took so long for me to reply. 33183 is $55, 70778 is $52, 60628 is $46, and 48228 is $55. I'm in California.
    I'm pretty sure it will fit on a 2010 coupe? All I know is that it did fit on my 2008 GT vert, so I'm not sure, but I think the s197s are all the same in that regard?
    Whoever lets me know first that they want it and sends me a PayPal, I'll send it to them today or tomorrow.
    My email address is gus @ chyba.net (I put spaces in there so a spam program can't read it, but just take the spaces out).

    let me know if they are still for sale and shipping to 33018. Are these the HD shocks, and how much harsher are they than the other after market shocks if you know.

    Yes, these are the HD shocks. It's not that they're harsh so much as they are really firm and controlled. They make the car corner totally flat, it feels like an M3. Unfortunately, if you have a convertible and live somewhere the roads are bad, the ride for me is just too hard for everyday use. If I had a coupe and wanted something that really transformed the car, I would keep these. Shipping anywhere in the country is right around $50...
