    Ya They are a great brand, if thats what you want to know. Walker evans, great stuff, as is Allpro. Look into Icon coilovers, and King too.

    If you get the remote reservoir coils you'll be able to adjust the dampening (stiffer/softer) with the turn of a knob. I had these on my truck and you'll love these coils.

    Ahh! For some reason I thought you were buying new. That's a great price for those shocks:

    Don't sweat the valving. AllPro's experienced enough to have them set up right when they're shipped, so I'm sure you'll be thrilled with the ride right out of the box.

    Are they new or used?

    Curious. Next obvious question is how "used" are they? Have they been on a street-only vehicle or have they taken an offroad pounding in their time? I have a set of reservoir W/E coilovers that I keep as spare parts. After the abuse I put them through I couldn't sell them to anybody with a clear conscience.

    Why is the guy selling them?
