What to do with old shocks & springs?

What did you do with your old springs & shocks?

I just finished a 2" lift, so I have my old springs & fairly new Monroe shocks. What should I do with them?

Put them on Craigslist and in the for sale section of the forum.

I gave mine to a neighbor who scraps metal as every little bit helps... Also gave him almost 40 pounds of rusted metal that I cut out of my frame....

I gave my old springs away to someone who was doing a frame restore. Stock springs aren't worth much more than their scrap worth.

Well you have a 00. 12 year old springs are not worth anything
