Hello,

does anybody have any stock shocks that will fit a 2000 b5 sedan (1.8t manual). They don't have to be in great condition, i'm pulling my neuspeed springs and bilsteins before ending the lease. Possible trade for Neuspeed springs and Bilstein shocks + $.

The following parts are up for grabs: Neuspeed springs, Bilstein shocks, Forge Motorsports Diverter Valve (polished 006), ATW ECU flashed with neuspeed 1.1? bar by Greedspeed with K&N (will trade for your comp plus $), 18 inch 5Zigen 7-spoke wheels/nitto nt555 225-40/18.

Let me know if interested or have questions. located in southern california.

thanks,

I may be interested in the ECU and the wheels and I'm local.

Will the ECU work with an '02 1.8T Tip?

Any pics of the rims and what condition are they in?

dj_aero, I don't think the ECU will work with your car, I will post the ECU Number Later.

Does anybody know the compatibility of a 2000 1.8t 5 spd manual ECU? will it work with other years? with Tip?

I will get some pics of the wheels up tomorrow. The wheels are in good shape. I think one has a little curb rash. 2 tires have at least 50% life left, 2 fronts are pretty much done with. (i'll have 2 new tires put on if wanted, i think they're about $280 a pair mounted) The wheels are a 7-spoke (i forget the name) in a bright silver. I'll let them go for less than I paid for the wheels alone. Price will be posted when i have some pictures for you.

Gene, I think i found the shocks for $30 from a B5'er who works local to me. I already have the springs. (Guess i should have kept the stock shocks too.) thank you anyways.

Yes, the springs will fit 1998-2000.5 1.8T sedan. They are Neuspeed Sport 1.5" F/R. They are green in color. They have about 40K miles on them. The bilsteins only have about 20K miles on them Similar can be seen at this link.

Are you a fellow skater junepassat? I checked out the "drop in skate park" we recently went to the etnies grand opening in LakeForest california. http://www.thirdchoice.com/Etnies2/index.htm

They are Sport , The front struts have 3 positions for preload/ride-height adjustment. The valving is not adjustable on these. The part numbers from auto-tech are as follows:
10.500.b362081 Sport Front, B5 98-00 (>121221) ($133.60 current catalog price)
10.500.be32533 Sport Rear, Passat B5 ($125.60 current catalog price)
The springs are neuspeed sport 1.5" lowering ($199.00 greedspeed's price)

i'm asking $200 for springs and shocks/struts. Preferably local to SoCal so i don't have to ship.

"Designed to push a car's suspension to its performance peak, these shocks are designed for lowered springs. The shortened stroke of the Sport ensures proper spring preload and correct positioning of the suspension's travel range."
