« on: September 08, 2016, 08:19:36 PM »
I decided to give FOA a shot at selling me springs this time since they had the combination I wanted and Eibach,King,Suspension Spring Specialists(Blue Springs) didn't. Besides,they offer them in black also!  :m  Hope I didn't make a mistake with them,didn't research any reviews,don't know if there are any to be found either. Only problem so far,is that the moofers took 4 fooking days to ship the effin things! WTF? I mean,how hard is it to gather up 8 boxes and get the damn things to ups? ??? 5:
