Default VB&P front leaf and lower arms sale/trade

I have the lower control arms and matching composite leaf spring for a C3. They came with the spares package for my 69 when I purchased it. I've never installed these, but they do appear used. I don't think I'll ever use them so I'd rather sell or trade them. I don't have a clue what is a fair price, but it looks like they were around $750 when new. Maybe $500 plus actual shipping? Located in Central Fl and I expect shipping to be sort of expensive due to size and weight.

As for trades..Will trade up or down... Good SBC headers. 17 or 18 inch wheels..9-9.5 wide..Borgeson swap parts...(I have the box already)...The car will take a Pro-touring style, so anything toward that type build might be of interest. Will post pictures to show actual condition and exactly what is included.

Thanks

Default Update

Here's the update. The leaf appears to have impacted something at some time. I sent pictures to a person who is the most knowledgeable on composite springs that I could think of. He said that it should be fine. He did recommend scuffing/sanding the damaged area to clean it up some. The spring will need rubber or urethane bushings at the ends replaced. I'll attach 3 pictures, but have more for anybody interested. I'll also share the exact email response privately with any serious potential buyer. I don't take it as a 100% guarantee....this is still a used part. I see it as the opinion of an expert...if not THE expert. All that said...I'd drop it to $400/trade Plus shipping . I"m open to offers though also.
