    anyone ever bought or priced a set?

    how much would 2 fronts (steers) and one rear (non steer) go for on average?

    i have my eye on a 2 fronts, minus brakes, and one rear for $200. should i jump on this or wait? i dont really plan on using them anytime soon...just as an investment sort of deal. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Two fronts and a rear for $200? That sounds like a hell of a deal to me! I found a set about a year about, 1 front and one rear, complete, for $1000. I passed on the deal once I found out how much it takes to get them under the truck and the tires I would have had to run. But for that price, I would say yes!

    yeah, i was just worried about the 2 fronts not having the brakes. still has a pinion brake though /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    not like i have the time or money to throw them under anything now anyways /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif, so i figured id just sit on them for a while and watch my parts collection grow. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I would be all over that deal like white on rice!!! I wouldn't want to use the stock drum brakes anyways. I would prefer the pinion brakes or better yet, disc brakes in place of the drums. Still an awesome price for 3 axles as you will never find them cheaper than that. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Do not expect pinion brakes to do the job by themselves. At speed they won't help you much. They are turning 6.72 times what your wheels are!!!! Can you say brake fade!!!!
