Eldorado caliper parking brake hardware source?

Ruffstuff doesn't sell it separate, and is out of stock of the calipers.

Lugnut4x4 wants $150 USD to ship them to Canada (just the hardware, so what will fit in a padded envelope). Get fucked.

Anywhere else?

It looks like the few places other that used to make it are out of business.


Maybe because Eldorado calipers stuck.

Great Lakes Offroad posted here a while back. I answered that I had some OEM on a shelf, collecting dust. After a few PMs he thinks mine aren't the same as what he was selling. Been too long for me to remember the details, but try sourceing Great Lakes Offroad here, or at their website.

ruff stuff had them for a while, maybe hit them on the phone to see if there is a chance of the calipers coming back into stock before life ends?

Granted that's $100 less than Lugnut, but like fuck.

Is there an import tariff?

Because it should fit in a standard ($10 or so) US Postal Service box for shipping. No fancy tracking or whatnot, but damn, it's a couple STEEL brackets and spring. It's not like they're going to get damaged.

No tariff. Tax would be COD.

It's $35 for a small flat rate priority international box, which it would fit in. But that's not normally the cheapest option, and assumes no account pricing. Normally UPS or Fedex is cheaper.

I think their price is for a box + we're charging you a handling charge like it's 1992.

So.... in simple terms, you complaining about a $15 upcharge, when you're already saving $100 over the competitors pricing? All other things being equal?

Don't understand why shipping to us canucks has to be so punitive. Rockauto ships little stuff like that to Canada for $10-15. No other COD fees.

Exactly. I order a ton of shit from them. My last order of $350 worth of crap (hoses, filters, sensors, etc, enough stuff it is going in two large boxes) shipped for $35.
