    I just purchased my rear 5100 from toytec for $161.49 + $14.26(shipping)=$175.75. Tried to cancel after an hour because found it cheaper in suspensionconnection.com for $152.97 plus shipping but they were going to charge me $20 for canceling my order because they get charge by the credit card company for canceling. All this rules was all laid out in their website so I can't argue with that. They could not price match it either because it is already been processed and no change can be made, again this is also in their policies. Toytec are good people though, its just their prices are a little higher. Don't make the same mistake like I did. I am still excited for my shocks though!

    That's the idea! We learn from our mistake which in the long run, makes as strong. I will be riding better in 3-4 days though! hahahaha

    As a dealer, we try to be competitive with all the other companys out there, but we can't always have the best price. We hope that when you call and we have the answer to your questions that you will still purchase from us instead of some place that may have them a few dollars cheaper.

    Also, as a side note. It is really hard to price match when other companys don't even have the product in stock (Bilstein 5100s)

    Dan, I don't think anyone is questioning Wheeler's price :D. This was an issue with Toytec. But your statement still applies, 5100s are hard to keep in stock. I think Toytec just received a new order of them.


    Also you can't beat Toytecs customer service!

    Update: Toytec gave me some money back, it came out about $167 including shipping. Great service! Thanks Doug!

    i was one of the lucky few to get my 5100's from downsouth motorsports. They sold out in less that 24 hours once they were in stock.
