**WTB: H&R Sport Springs for my R129 and I need your thoughts..

Where can I get H&R Sport Springs # 29853 + ship for less than $335.00 w/ ship?

What is the lowest price that you think I can get them for on Craiglist, etc.?

I would call them. Alot of shops say they have them in stock and when you order them they are out. H&R no longer makes them so oou need to find someone that has them in stock.

You got a fantastic deal Sean!

I just mentioned to Lynn earlier that I highly doubt we are going to find these for under $300 bucks. (retail)

Wait a minute Lynns, isn't your SL a MY 2000? I thought all the available kits/springs out there are for MY 1996 and earlier? AFAIK, they don't make aftermarket springs for MY2000 and later. Am I right?

No, the H&R Springs that show that they work on R129's to MY96 will in fact work through to the last MY02.

And I found a new set on eBay for $271.00 that included shipping back in 02/2008.
