Talking about Eibach springs.

These part numbers are covered in this web page:


Here's my question.  I have a new set of the Eibach 1529.140 Kit 
combination two:   p/n 1529.001 F, 1529.002 R   that I have never 
installed.  I also have the 1 Cm spacers that are needed for use 
with the Bilstein sport shocks.  This is the combination that is
a little stiffer than the 1527.001VA F and 1516.002HA R springs
that Craig is talking about above.

Since I'll probably never use them, I ought to sell them.  What
are these going for now days?  I think I paid around $400 for
the set.
