OK; are you interested in springs only, or, the pre-assembled pair of Front Struts with everything needed, in good working condition (Tokiko "Bues" which are actually black) with not a ton of miles on them, rear springs raw (both springs only)? Plus, shoot me your zip code. The brand of springs is ST. Or, I have a different set altogether, can't remember the brand, but they are painted red. I think they are perhaps a bit stiffer than the ST's, but not for sure (I CAN pull them out and put calipers to them to compare thickness vs the ST's); they are all raw.
I'd probably be interested in the whole front strut assemblies and the rear springs. The Tokico's. How much would you want for them I'm thinking since you paid 120 I think 80 and shipping is pretty reasonable. If you don't shoot me back a counter offer, my zip code is 84057.

Sounds good. Shipping will be salty, but, I will box them up and measure/weigh and send a quote. I'm sure I have a great box for them all too.

The escort 5th gear is taller than the others, and not sure about their final, the probe/ mx3 share 1st-5th with the mx6, but the mx6 has a taller final, 4.38 mx3 vs 4.11 mx6. It has been a long time since I've dug through it all, but that much I do know. The difference is worth I think 800rpm lower at 75mph or so, which I believe is more than the 5th gear swap, likely only a .8:1 to .77:1

Hmmm, very interesting matt89~!!! Now I am trying to figure out what a "final" is, and how/where to get one from the MX-6, then, how to install into my MX-3/Probe M/T~! I will probably do the 5th Gear Swap too ('cause, that's how I roll).

Guess I will be looking to pull a M/T from an MX-6 or 626, then add the Escort 5th gear. Pyro got my ST Lowering Springs with 2 x Tokicos/fronts, but, I think I have a different set of lowering springs at the bottom of a pile of boxes in my shed; hardly used at all. Will sell this set too. Guess I should list it in a for sale ad.
