Penske

Ok not mine but at this price could be a viable option for someone, it doesn't say the model and the seller seems a bit like a pr***k but maybe just because of translation.

I know it's a ways away...shipping isn't too bad.

Worse case it needs a rebuild, so factor price with shipping + rebuild and or re-spring if you wind up spending $400 total seems like still a decent deal.

Or I could be totally out to lunch in this...

By the look of the reservoir/compression adjuster, it's an 8981 or 8983.
This is a two-way (low speed compression & rebound) shock.

New, the 8983 goes for around $850. The 8987 three-way (Hi/Lo compression & rebound) goes for around $1200 new.

Seems I'm always scouring for a good deal, especially on Fleabay.

When I spotted this I was thinking of you Duck, good luck I hope you win it...I got this odd feeling you will.

Some one is trying to get it away from me, fair game....I'm still in. I have a feeling another member here is after it as well.

Then just chill and wait till near the end. Don't get into a bidding competition, it'll just drive the price up.
I know you know that.

Use a sniper site, I've used them a couple times and won the item.
But then, Ebays *max bid* works pretty good too, to find out what other bidders max may be.

Yup take JD's advice, have a limit.

I sent you a pm Duck, so if it doesn't work out this time we have a system. I have my ear to the ground also like I said in the pm.
