    I managed to figure it out when I was taking out the AN to 10mm adapter at the caliper and that was bent too. At least that maintained a seal.

    I always make major purchases with my discover card. Has saved my ass a few times when transactions have gone sideways. They have never not ruled in my favor.

    Kinda random but I wanted to share a tip whenever you have to ship heavy truck parts. UPS has their own flat rate shipping that utilizes your own packaging and goes off of cubic inches with a 50 lb weight limit. It's nice because you're not limited to what you can shove into a USPS flate rate box, for example.

    If you repurpose boxes to make your own form-fitting box, you can save a ton of money. To send a pair of spindles to CA would have been about $80 but was $25 through UPS flat rate.

    Yesterday I made a box to fit two CV axles. Squeaked in at 47 lbs and barely within the size limits. It also cost me $25 to send to CA vs close to $100 if I did normal shipping.

    It's always worth checking multiple sources too. My go-to is pirateship.com for anything medium to small sized. It's a site that utilizes USPS deals to somehow save you money. I've used it a bunch and never had any issues. The benefit of shipping USPS is you can just place it in your mailbox if it fits, or schedule a free USPS pickup if it's supported at your address.

    I figure I've gotta get good at it if I'm doing it so often.

    haha these are other spacers that I sold for a friend. IIRC you got whatever I pulled out of my recycling bin for extra cardboard, like cereal boxes and whatnot.
