pre fabed mounting tabs

i am looking to order some tabs for mounting my links and coil overs to my 60's. i found one place and they are 6 bucks a tab. i thouhgt that was pretty expensive, but since i havent looked before and cant seem to find many places that sell them i am curious if this is high or what i should be expecting. i think at 6 bucks i can cut and grind my self. am i being a cheap shit here? i tired to look at poly but they are builiding a new website. where else should i look?
thanks alot!

They are cheap and fast, but try to find anything over 1/8" thick from them.

if you go the the website, you can find lots of 3/16" tabs, some 1/4 too. either of which would be best for coilovers..but i'd really go for 1//4 for the link mounts. 3/16 will oval the holes over time...hth

A-A Mfg is the best by far. Tabzone and Protofab also do tabs but the prices aren't as good. Do a search.....I think there are others too.

HTH,
Sean

if you get a catalog from them you will see that a lot of the tabs you can get in 1/8", 3/16", or 1/4"...they have quite the selection in their catalog...

They tabs we have priced at $5.99 are CNC laser cut from 5/16" plate. We can cut tabs from thinner material for less. We do have some tabs priced in the 5.99 range that have detailed designs in 1/4"

I agree some of the stamped parts A&A are a great value. Just make sure they will hold up for your application.

Keep in mind we offer special pricing a lot of times for Pirate members. If you need anything let us know. We have tons of tabs and brackets in stock.

Thanks
Dan

I just bought all mine from Blue-Torch...Lazer cut vs stamped are just cleaner...And after fabbing them all on my last ride, I just want to save the time...$100 bones is well spent when time is of the essence. Their lower 4 link mount is pretty trick too, and for the price, I'd just as sonn buy from them...

Another option is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWA%3AIT

Not a bad price for 8 tabs!

Keep an eye on the AA discount/close out section. I got the 3/16 shock tabs for .59 each, so I ordered twice as many
