stock 5.0 exhaust and suspension, put on craiglist?

Is there any market for the stock exhaust mufflers, springs and dampers for an '11 brembo gt that were taken off at around 3k?

It's in the way in the garage. Should I dump 'em or craiglist them? if craiglist? how much? 50 bucks?

I don't think anyone is gonna buy a stock exhaust, people who change the exhaust go for an upgrade, not a stock.
Unless there is something wrong with theirs, but the Mustang is too new to have this kind of problems with the exhaust...
Maybe try a place that sell used parts, they might want to buy it of from you at a cheap price.

When I changed my axle backs for the GT500 one, I didn't even bother getting the stock ones back...

They're basically worthless but Save em in case you ever need to bring the car back to stock to sell it.
Many prefer to buy an un-modded car and in fact will often bring just as much money as a modded car and widen your potential audience.. Dealers usually don't like modded cars on trade either. You re-sell the Mods and come out ahead in the end.

If you change your stock parts for others parts like I did with Ford Racing the warranty doesn't change since they're all Ford Parts.
My exhaust is the same as the GT500 so no warranty issues there, confirmed by my dealership.

My parts arn't Ford, but I guess if I had it in writing I wouldn't have a problem. However, my dealer hasn't even seen my parts, so I don't know what to expect.

I say get 'em out of your way. It's amazing what people will buy on Craig's list and unlike most feeBay transactions you can arrange a meeting so you don't have to mess around with packing the s--t up.

Start 'em up a little higher than you want and let people make offers. You never know. Heck, I almost threw away 4 tires that had absolutely ruined wide whitewalls (mid 50's wheels on an early 60s car looked stoopid and had to be replaced) and ended up getting $50 for 'em from a kid who wanted to do some kind of a wierd hot rod thing with his 1990 S-10. Something is better than nothing and your garage doesn't turn into a place so filled with stuff you can't do anything.

Just my two cents. Keep in mind I'm an anal-retentive Virgo though.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.
