Default Is there a market for used suspension parts?

Just got a lift on my 2019 SCrew (fabtech 6"), now I have all the factory parts/shocks/springs - what has everyone done with theirs? Any market for the parts or are they pretty much trash/recycle now? Thanks!

Unless someone wants to replace worn parts...no, generally not. There are many like you who flood the market with take-off parts.

I keep all my OEM parts to return to stock if/when I get rid of the truck. Not everyone wants a truck with your style of mods. Mods can at times even lower the value to a potential buyer.
You could try on Craigslist if you really want to get rid of them.

Saved my parts as well for the very reason John stated. I wouldn't swap them out on resale but include them so the new owner can decide which way they want to go.

Only on 4wd, no cutting required on 2wd.

It can always be returned to OEM with a little work.

That's why welding machines were invented.

Consider keeping them as spares if you are off-road and break a part. Even if itís a stock part it could get you off the trail.
