I'm not entirely sure since they were on the car when I bought it. I removed them when the car had roughly 60k. They probably have 20-30K on them. None of them have leaks. They all have gas pressure.

When I bought the car, it came with 10/8/6 springs. I'm using the 8 with other shocks. That leaves the 10/6 for sale. Springs are only $50-60 ea. if you want to change the spring rates to something that matches what you are looking for.

These were a great value at $1200 but are now a steal at $1100.

Life of your vehicle. The primary reason you'd rebuild them is if they blew a seal and lost their pressure. You also might rebuild them if you wanted to change the valving to accommodate a spring rate that is outside of the shock's current capability. If they ever need to be refreshed, Tein charges $130/shock to return them to factory spec. Additional details can be found at http://www.tein.com/seavice/index.html

These shocks all have great pressure and have had springs on them that are well within their operating range. The RA is an inverted mono tube and is one of the beefiest shocks that Tein makes.

They are off the car and all cleaned up. They have been off the car since the end of '06 or Jan '07. They have only been autocrossed and daily driven on.

Yes you can. You would simply use the Tein pillow nuts in the Cusco camber plates. The non threaded, smooth, outside of the pillow nuts are the same size for both the Tein and the Cuscos. The threaded inside of the pillow nuts are 12mm for the Cuscos and 14mm for the Teins.
