    Did you read the fine print? Unless I am misunderstanding the price is actually just a down payment. The actual price is 600.

    Yup, the $119.99 is just a 20% deposit. It would've been a steal otherwise. Considering it's a small batch of custom-made, high-quality parts, the affluent enthusiast might be quite happy to pay $600, but it would be way out of my league.

    Yeah... it's outta my budget at the moment. I still need to find a wrench I can use to get that damn upper control arm nut off the frame side. Not enough clearance for a deep socket and a normal socket is too short. Still have the ES bushings to put on those.

    I dunno how many pre-orders he has yet but fuck it, i'll buy in to help get it to the goal. Anybody know how many people here have gone for it? Has this been noted on CVN?

    I am all for the cause but I do not see the benefit over the factory pieces with poly bushing. If these had spherical heim joints like mounts I would be in even if the cost was more which it undoubtedly would be. That is the main issue with these rear ends and for that to be addressed would be fantastic. As they stand now I think it’s cool but not what works for me. I don’t just go in straight lines.

    Thanks for posting up

    We know the price is higher then some would like but given the small batch size we're kinda stuck. Hopefully we can get enough people interested and get this product to market. As of right now we've got 10 pre-orders. Only need 10 more to make this a reality!

    There must be more than 20 people in the world interested in box vics. Wouldn't these fit aeros too? I know the sway-bar mounts are different but otherwise the same?

    Yes... 79-97 will bolt on.

    Agreed. We originally worked with Metco to make their offerings but didn't put the sway bar mounting holes in them which limited the amount of people who'd be buying. By putting the sway bar mounts on the lower bars we opened it up for all 79-97 cars.

    We're up to 11 paid deposits. Not bad for a week's time! Keep it up guys! So close to getting another product to market for these cars
