  1. I have tried to update the original post without success. Shocks and springs are sold, everything else is still available. I did not mention or list an RX-7 axle. Someone else did though as this post unfolded. The yellow frame listed here was fitted with a Celica rear axle, it sold before I listed here though. Thanks.
  2. Just a heads-up, I've been trying to sell a set virtually identical to these at about half this price with no luck. Even on the MG forums. If you find a buyer, let me know and tell their friends.
