Default Shocks / Struts advice

Hello fellas, brand new to this forum so be gentle.

I'm going to try and make this really short for convenience all around.

Three questions here:

1.) Which of these are Shocks, and which are Struts?

http://www.blauparts.com/assets/allr...nsion_kit2.jpg

2.) Which car is it for exactly?

(Here is some information:

Audi Allroad Suspension – Allroad Air Suspension Conversion Kit )

3.) How much would each be worth independently? They only come in a set, for $1,000. How much would the set of two Struts, or set of two Shocks sell for individually if sold? (Brand new.)

Thanks in advance!

Whoops! I gave the link name but didn't attach the link, forgot to do the codes.
All better!

Nope, I'm actually planning on selling these but I don't know exactly what I have. Which is why I'm trying to find out if I have the Shocks or Struts, which car they go to exactly, and how much they're worth.

I only have the two Shocks, or the two Struts, but not both sets.

if they are adjustable then its a coilover kit. are the springs attached to the strut?

Is it a strut then? I've tried to be as detailed in my first post as I possibly could, but apparently nobody understands what I'm asking or saying.

The coil is pre-installed, as shown in both of my links.

This is the exact set I have, but I only have two of the four. So I either have the Struts or I have the Shocks, but which do I have? (I have the two on the left, the shorter two.)

How much would I be able to sell these for by themselves? Since I only have half the set. The complete set is 1,000.

And which car is this for?

Thank you thank you thank you

EDIT: I guess it's for an "Audi Allroad"? I didn't know that Allroad was a car model, I thought it was referring to the shocks.
I guess that's out of the way. Now just to determine what these are worth and if they are shocks or struts.

well judging from the link u posted and reading the description it looks like their are shocks. As for selling them individually. if have the spring and shock i would say that a normal shock brand new runs about 120 and a spring around 70 to 100. So somewhere in the ballpark of 4 to 5 hundred for the full rear setup. Though that might be a little conservitive in the price range.
