Talking FS: E39 Sport Shocks and Springs w/ shock mounts!!! EXCELLENT CONDITION!

Hey guys,

I recently lowered my car (with Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks) and I need to sell my original sport suspension. I have front and rear shocks, springs, and shock mounts all in excellent condition! My tech friend that works for a BMW dealership helped me with the swap and told me my OEM suspension was in excellent shape and has a lot of life to go. I swapped it out at 74k miles. I've always taken the best care of the suspension ever since buying the car by going super slow and diagonal around speed-bumps and random pot holes (OC streets are pretty smooth to begin with )! I'm hoping to sell these all together. BTW, these were off a 2001 E39 530i. I haven't gotten a chance to take pics but if you're interested, PM me and I'll send you photos asap!

Willing to Ship within the lower 48 states!
If you live in Socal, we may be able to meet up instead.

Asking Price:
F&R Shocks: $165 shipped obo
F&R Springs: $90 obo Sold!!
F&R Mounts: $15 + shipping

If you buy the shocks and springs set, I'll throw in the mounts for free.

Price Dropped!!!!


Price is Negotiable.

I6 and V8 e39s have different suspensions so it wont fit the 540 sport. The shocks are in excellent condition. No leaks whatsoever and all rebound perfectly. I haven't taken pictures yet but I can if you're still interested

thanks for the reply - my son has a 99 528 w/147k. i'm doing a wheel bearing job on his car so stock shocks in good condition may be a slight upgrade. The value is there since i will be doing "common labor" getting those wheel bearings replaced. how many miles were on your car when you took them out? how about the compression and rebound? are the hard (i know that's relative) to compress? how quickly does the rod come back up when compressed all the way (again relative).

i was looking at these for my 540 sport at first.

please take and send pics.

lol no problem. I will send you the pictures tonight. What's your email? It takes 19 seconds for the rears to rebound and 8 seconds for the fronts. I just tested them right after you replied. I took them out at 74k miles. It rebounds right away with no problems and no leaks. Hope that helps!

still have the shocks/mounts?

I have a 530i sport, bought in October, and after replacing the very worn sway bar bushings, I think I also need new shocks in front and maybe rear.
Do you still have the shocks, and are they for both front and rear?
What would shipping be to zip 22066?

No rush as it has been so cold here that there is no way I could work on it until the weather warms up a bit.

Let me know if you still have them, and what the price with shipping would be.

Thanks,
Dave
