Koni's have always been more expensive. Always been very high quality.

Too bad the old HO-Racing springs are no longer available. I know Ken Crocie sold the rights to Malibu performance, but they recently gave up on selling them. Those springs with Bilsteins made for a NICE ride and excellent handling on A-bodies. I installed that combo on several.

Thanks for that. Sometimes itís cheaper on US sites, even with the exchange. But for sure I always check two websites before ordering: Rock Auto and Amazon.

You guys in the States are so lucky. You get free shipping on almost everything. Youíd think that free shipping down there would mean cheap shipping to here. But no, itís usually way more for shipping.

I'm 8 hours north of you, and feel your shipping pain Hell, even stuff from Toronto that is "free shipping" is often not free to get to this area!!

Summit now offers free Fedex shipping to Canada for orders over $299. I always liked Summit for their selection and customer service, love them even more now. Very easy to put together an order that qualifies for free shipping.

For the past 5 years I have had stuff shipped free (US shipping) to a Niagara Falls, NY package holding place and picked them up 2-3 times a year, but with the border closed that option has disappeared.


Oshawa built 1 option Judge that was a real basket case, so I am rebuilding it the way I want. 455 +0.030", SD KRE 295's, CNC'd factory intake, Cliff's Qjet, Stump Puller HR cam, RARE RA manifolds, Pypes exhaust, T56 Magnum, McLeod RXT clutch, 3.42 12 bolt.
