well priced tubing in north bay/ sacramento area?

where can I find cheapest tubing in bay area/ sacramento for my project. I'm doing a one ton 3 link set up front and rear with coilovers in a fj40, and need to buy around 50 ft of various tube for links and some tube work with the shock mounting, etc.

i go to pleasanton steel (now in livermore) prices arent too bad. call before hand if you need DOM because i think all they carry is HREW.

S&K can't get DOM, but they have the best prices on HREW and other steel. Ask for Ralph.

abc supply in sacramento carries dom and just about everything else.

link

they will sell cut lengths also. they were a lot cheaper than s&k when i bought 200' of hrew. s&k is still a great place to get material and some bending done, even tho lori doesn't work there anymore .
s&k is also a lot more convenient to get to for me. i hate down town.

S and K is the cheapest for most stuff, ABC is best for DOM and stainless. Teamtube quoted me today $6.21 per foot for 1.75 .120 wall DOM, ABC was $4.55 per foot

that's a big difference

as info, blue collar does not carry tube anymore, if they did. Only drops, and they wont order HREW or DOM.

id like to echo that - they sold me 150 feet of 1.25x.065 4130 tube for 453.00 DELIVERED... pretty good IMO...

I just bought some steel from team tube in west sac. It was 3.07/ft for 1.75x.120 DOM 6.xx for 1.75x.250 and 7 or 8 for 2x.250 but I bought over 500 feet to get that price. Your best bet is to get some friends to buy their steel at the same time and buy in bulk, after calling around Team tube seemed to have the best pricing
