200 shipped for NB billies from a spec car, have one season on them ~15 weekends. Thoughts? Come with two FCM bumpstops.

Seems reasonable to me. Then I spend another 35 bucks on two more bumpstops, 120 on sleeves/collars, ~150 on used springs, and then figure out the top hat situation.

Edit - 24-014892 and 24-014885 are the two part numbers on them. They appear to be in good condition with no signs of leaks in the pictures anyway.
FYI those are NA-HD part #s . SM uses the NA billstines on both the NA and NB.
general consensus on this thread is to use the NB variants. Personally i'm going to run the NA-HD and see how i like them.

Sent a follow up and heard a reply immediately. Looks like shipping went up unfortunately. Gonna cost a bit over 40 each after shipping, but that's the way it goes. They're a lot nicer than isc and that was my other alternative, besides making isc style ones.

That'll be everything I need to put these things together, besides time. I'm really looking forward to these.

Since you're a handy dude, you could consider just cutting the tops off NB hats and welding in some pipe. That's how the ones on page 1 were made. They end up Maruha style, but with one advantage: the pipe serves as a nice locator for the spring isolators. Otherwise, no functional difference.

I considered that, but by the time I buy a set of NB top hats and get the pipe I'm in it for ~100 bucks.

Same with making ISC style ones. I can get the stuff to do it cheaper but.. then I have to do it.

I just want to put them on and the maruha pieces are nice so I'll pay the extra bit. I already bought new bilsteins. Might as well go the whole way.

I priced the maruha hats when I was building. About $100/pair shipped wasn’t terrible but I was deal hunting at the time. Too rich for my blood.

They are sexy tho...
Order more and they get cheaper. If you're interested then I could add some to my order.. shipping is a whole 1/3rd of a set of 4. I doubt it goes up much just adding two/four more though.

Then from there they're a 6-10 dollar flat rate box away.

If you’re bored and like bothering them, shoot me a quote on 2. If you don’t wanna I’m good too.

Fair warning... I’m unlikely to purchase either way because I don’t need them.
Shot em an email and we'll see what they say. The absolute cheapest would be ~55 for the pair plus the shipping from me (~5-10). That's if it doesn't add on to my shipping at all.

I'll let you know what they say tomorrow, it's late over there now

It adds 74.62 to the order to include two extras shipped to me, I expect it would be somewhere around an additional 5-10 dollars to ship them to you once they get here.

Let me know if you're interested

I’m planning on buying top hats from two six Motorsport, is the lower nb bushing compatible with this hat or is everyone using something else?

Bushing is pretty much a bushing is a bushing. NB bushing is fine. :)
