Because we don't have a showroom or retail counter, not that we would chase you away We just don't try and compete with the local shops, they all carry our stuff!

Thanks for stopping by Curly.....

it pulls me away from email!

And speaking of email, I got a question, Do we accept PayPal, We are a real business and we prefer Paypal for your security, we don't use a personal account, we have a business account and yes, we have had PayPal screwups but the security is worth it, giving your CC number to someone over the phone has always scared me, do it the secure way, use payPal, it dosen't cost you anything to use it!

This has also been the week from hell!

I had an employee fall to the floor screaming on monday, he is in the hospital with kidney stones the size of Rhode Island! and both of my part time employees have been doing finals all week so it was just me and my other full timer (he is getting a bonus this week) all week......It is Miller time.......but if you tried to call and the VM was full or I couldn't answer because I was too busy getting the days shipping out please call me now, it has slowed down quite a bit since 5pm and I will be working till way late.......

If you're gonna talk shit you at least need to post some pics. You've been around here long enough to know this is a put up or shut up crowd!

They are for SRW axles, the site says that, the DRW have a larger offset and we don't offer them yet? You spent $320 and got a $32 discount on top of that? I will be happy to refund the cost of the Ford D70 brackets, all you have to do is tell me.......We would not leave you hanging with something that dosen't work for you. I will modify the add here if it implies they work on Duals.

This is the description on the website: This is the bracket for your Ford D70 & D70U, it actually fits! I developed these after the success of our 14 Bolt brackets and seeing what was available on the market and the problems associated with the others. The D70 was used by all of the Big 3 automakers at one time or another and they all had different uses and designs specifically for them. These are for a Ford D70 or D70U only! These are for SRW axles, DRW axles have a different offset. Both the Dodge and GM have different flanges and tube diameters. We have actually identified 4 different flanges in use and 3 tube diameters. How can 1 size fit all? So Please, don't buy the 1 size fits all available out there, you may get lucky and have it work but the odds are against you.....These also use the '75 Chevy 3/4 Ton Front Rotors and Calipers and those really cost peanuts but the rotor will need the throat opened by ~3/16".

thanks for the refund, sorry i didnt read the ad on your site, only the one on this page... your brackets are quality, especially the accuracy of the bends, but the holes suck, someone even took the time to bump a few with a soft pad but never took the time to clean the diameter out, if you want a pic ive still got a few to ream out

We have always made our holes 1/100 larger than the bolt required so as to not be sloppy but fit the bolt in? Most companies make theirs substantially larger but they end up sloppy.

I went through 2 shelves filled with the brackets you bought and I am kind of at a loss? Slag, when found on Laser cut parts is extremely small because 99% of the steel is vaporized in the process and the heat moves so fast it gives the surrounding area too little time to heat up. The kerf marks are normal and should look like very, very small bandsaw marks. What is whip out?

sorry, bad pic but hte arrows show the oblong shape of the hole and the right hand arrow points to an uncut chunk or ball of slag in the hole

sorry i was being a bitch about having to ream the holes, the brackets you sold me are working out EXCELLENT for what i needed, id buy from you again without hesitation
