    Hey guy's just thought I would put this on here for anyone looking for 5100'00 or other billy's. I ordered front & rear 5100's shipped via FEDEX and my grand total with shipping and gst was $436.80, about a loonie more than bringing em' up from downsouth. http://www.bilsteincanada.com/index.php

    Downsouth is 282.99 shipped. I was quoted 55.75 shipping to Calgary Alberta. Using the current currency exchange rate that comes to $357.84 CAN.

    Just FYI.

    How do they ship? If it is UPS, expect to pay some hefty brokerage fees on top of that.

    No UPS.....
    Orders to Canada are usually sent via U.S. Postal Service International Mail, unless customer requests something different. Takes about 6-10 working days.

    That Canadian site is definitely not cheap. $120 each for front 5100's plus $100 each for the back ones?? Not including shipping either which says its only $5 each.

    Good evening,

    $282.99 for all "4" shocks for the Gen "2" and the shipping is $55.75 via USPS International Priority Mail and the transit time is 6-10 days....The taxes are not included...

    I have been watching this thread and was wondering about some of the
    pricing myself....Seems a bit high for some of you in Canada..

    Let us know what we can do anything to help out our fellow Tacoma owners
    to the North.

    Thanks,
    Sonny

    Well I added everything up according to the price you posted and added B.C taxes,and unless there is some other fees to be reckoned with,your price is around 142.00 cheaper!! Good stuff,gonna check your site out. TY

    Yeah Downsouth is definitely the way to go. I mean I should be supporting my own country's economy, but meh... I go where the better deal is! I know now where I'll be ordering my lift kit from when the time comes! :thumbsup:
