    hey guys,
    I'm looking for a place to get some new shocks. like the idea of the Bilstein 5100. so does anyone know a goo place to pick these up? also looking to get a new leaf pack in the back. one that gives a 3" lift.
    i know there are lots of places in the us but i don't think its all that cost effective to order from over the boarder.

    yeah the issue with Van and Truck world is that they go through Keystone as their supplier and the mark-up is unreal almost 30% mark-up cost to each object. and both the barrie one and orillia one you mention 5100 series lift/levelling shock and they look at ya sorta like you want me to go where now? i have had no luck with a leaf pack or 5100's the best we get is the goofy ReadyLift SST

    i don't think they have the right ones.
    has anyone done the whole PO-box thing in the US and just went down to get them? this seems like the best idea! so long as one can have things shipped to PO-boxes

    I just got 4x new FJ rims sent to a UPS store in Port Huron Mi.
    Super easy I called the UPS store and used their address (w/my name) with a Unit ZZ in the address and track it. I call the day they came in and drove down to pick them up.
    It cost me 30$ for UPS to store them/ hold them at there store till I picked them up. It goes by weight so my rims were heavy.
    Claimed them at the border, no problem
    Save me 300$ in shipping/ Brokerage charges.

    Hope this helps
    Mike

    I was in there a few months ago, but was just browsing. The guy who runs it seems super nice and is and ex-soldier .
    Keep my posted if you find out he carries Billies or OME. I am thinking of getting an OME lift very soon, and so far Baja North is the best Canadian dealer I can find.

    i found a small place in whitby that deals bilstein's. tool tyme is the name of the place and its on hopkins. i would think they don't have much of a mark-up.
    i've gotta get the proper part # so i can see how much they want for them.

    over-drive is where i got my rims from. nice guys in there for sure!

    http://www.usaddressinc.com/ I used this place last summer its like 5min across the boarder in Niagara falls. It worked out great cause the stuff I bought was free shipping in the US. The outlet mall is 5min away from this place so I made a day of it.

    they can get bilstine shocks but not the 5100's of coarse. because they are actually a subsidiary company that is making them and not bilstine proper.

    lame!!!
