    Yeah, thanks, I just thought they were cheap and still available. But hell, if they get over $50 I'll just make my own.

    He wants more than you can go to the dealership and pay list for. You can get them from the stealership for as little as $8/each.

    Link from a previous thread:

    Ford Parts Direct

    Just select "Ford" as the make and plug in "E5TZ-18183-A" as the OEM Part #



    $10.34 each plus $7.95 ground shipping.



    Nobody should have to feel bad now about losing an eBay auction. :D

    Besides me!:confused:


    I bid on these without reading these posts. I don't have time to go to the Frod Dealership, so it should work out fine. Hope I do get outbid though. :blush:

    The Bad thing is, I bought a set a while back and never installed them. I moved from St. Louis to Columbia and lost them somehow in the move. I have looked everywhere for them! So, this will be my second purchase.

    They come new powdercoated. Does he buy old ones, sandblast them, and then re-powdercoat them? Seems like a lot of work for a part that is already cheap. Maybe it is just easier to get them in some parts of the country than others. Although with the Internet.......:dunno:

    Just ask your local 4x4 shop. I got mine for $10 a pair. They take them of Fo#& when they do some of the lifts. Where I got mine they just pitched out a bunch the week b4 I got there.
