Used shocks are like used women - they cost almost as much as new and they can be cranky :-)

Seriously, since a major part of shock replacement is the installation it would be kind of penny wise and pound foolish to buy used shocks. You'll just have to replace them sooner with another set and be out two installations rather than one.

As a counterpoint, keep in mind that many of us replace just broken in OEM parts with performance upgrades. I'm confident that some on here have factory shocks with <10Kmi on them sitting in the corner of their garage & would be happy to get some pocket cash for them.

So, while I agree with the above poster that new parts are best, I can also see where someone wanting to save some cash could do very well buying barely used parts off a forum member -- they just need to be willing to accept the risk of a used part failing sooner.
