Question Bilstein B16 (PSS10) Cleaning Suggestions?

I have a set of Bilstein B16 (PSS10) 48-207287 Coilovers removed from the 2015 328i xDrive lease I just turned in.
They've been on the car for 2 1/2 years and have quite a bit of grime and grunge. [NYC Area] I'd like to get them cleaned up and then sell them.
Any suggestions on how best to clean them up?
Thx,
Jim

My buddies have used Simple Green and a nylon brush in the past. For the really thick grime kerosene or WD40 will cut through it. GLWS

I'm planning to sell the set for $700, plus shipping.
They've been on the 328i XDrive for 2 1/2 years.
They have approx. 22000 miles of use on them.
I bought them, had them installed and had them removed at AWE in PA.
Great shop, by the way! I highly recommend them for your exhaust and suspension needs.
According to Bilstein, they typically last 50000 miles before they need to be serviced.
So the buyer should expect at least a couple years of maintenance free driving.
