SOLD!

Full set of Bilstein HD shocks (fronts/rears) with top hats and dustboots included. Approximately 60k miles from previous owner. The shocks all seem to be in good shape--hard to compress and they all rebound well, however I have not had them on my own vehicle. I have no way of actually testing the top hats that I'm aware of.

Asking for $380 shipped./paypalled.

What else would I need to fit these on a OBXT, and where can I acquire those needed parts?
I don't believe you'd need anything at all. Anything you need should be in the realm of small washers, new mechanical lock nuts for the strut mounts (subaru recommends replacement them and calls them "one time use" but I'm not positive on that), etc. Little bits. You may want to invest in new tophats as there's a rubber bushing in them that does in fact wear out.

AFAIK outback swaps are pretty direct if the new shocks / struts include the housings for the fronts. These are full shocks, not inserts so they should be direct bolt ons.

However, please do your own research if you decide to purchase :)

Update to previous questions that were asked: everything is all packed up for shipping, but I'm missing two of the nuts that go on top of the shocks to hold down the tophats/springs. Two are included and you should be able to match those at a hardware store or reuse the ones on your stock shocks. Just wanted to throw that out there so people are aware.

Argyle, you may want some "saggy butt" spacers for the rear. Depends on how low you want the front & rear to be. Balancing F to R is part of the "art."

I actually have a set of saggy butt spacers (3/8") and extended studs if the buyer is interested.

Lower price, $380 shipped. I believe the set of spacers I have are sold, so won't be able to include those.
