    Best way to clean up some up coil overs?

    I have a couple of sets of coilovers that I need to shift on, but I want to give them a clean up first.

    They have some corrosion on them so I need to tidy that up any ideas?

    yeah a little just got some surface corrosion on them (pretty bad considering its never been outside ).

    I could get them stripped and re-anodised or similar but I am not sure its worth the hassle for the cost of them.

    Easiest way would be to use wire wool and white spirit

    next question would be how much are FK height and rebound adjustable suspension worth? With no miles and some corrosion

    They are £575 new, although I have two sets of 4 springs (standard and custom for my car).

    What are they new? About £450-500 for a set?

    I wouldn't give you a pint of piss for them, but I'm sure that you should be able to get £300+ easily
