    Hey Clint,
    You need to be specific with the part number when you call Ford.
    1980 Ford F-250 Shock Towers
    Part number E5TZ-18183-A
    They quoted me $80 when I called w/o the part number!
    I got both of mine for $30

    I had absolutely no problem getting mine. I called the local
    Ford dealer and told them I need 2 shock towers for a
    1980 F-250.
    The total with tax was like $28 bucks.
