    Been gettin alot of visits from CK5 members so I decided we had better join so you can see what we have to offer. We make Tabs, Brackets, Reinforcement Items, Shackles, Spring Perches, Hangers, essentially all the things needed to tie it all together. We make everything we sell.

    I confess we do not have many items specifically for any vehicle, we make the things that would go on any vehicle, and we make them to last. All of our items are at least .25" thick and the real workhorse items like Suspension Links are .375" thick. So look to us for bomber stuff! Everything is made in the USA, and it always will be.

    Our pricing will suprise you! We also support Clubs of every kind so lets consider CK5 a club to and in our support we give every club member an additional 10% discount (use CK510 code on checkout).And if you are a shop owner call me about Wholesale, we don't play that tier system crap and no minimum order either!:eek1: Small shops are the innovators, why should they be held down.

    We are adding 10 items a week and there are some blank spots on the website but if they are there something is in progress and will be there soon so keep checking back! BTW, our website isn't full of bells and whistles, those just add to cost.

    Got a couple of questions.....

    So here you are:
    Yes we accept PayPal with no surcharge.
    Yes we have disk caliper brackets, we ran a sellout sale last weekend so we could introduce new models, stronger and less expensive, coming this Friday through next Friday.
    Yes, we are making 3 varieties of truss, 1st rear truss this Friday or next Monday.


    Yes, Yes, Yes.


    Thanks for the support, in the next 2.5 months we are rolling out 35 more parts to add to the 90+ we make now.:wink1:

    sweet. only problem i see is lack of 2.5 wide spring stuff. most of it is 3.0 wide. are gm stuff runs 2.5. keep up the good work.

    and you might want to look in to axle wrap bars or kits of some kind. we like those .

    Are you forgetting about the aftermarket bushings that stick out on the sides of the springs to bring them to 3"?

    Ok, we are no longer talking about Spring perches.....

    :confused: On the axle end of the anti-wrap / track /traction bar we are set up for an industry standard 2.625 joint, on the other end we would use (generally) with 3" spacing allowing for the bushing . We make brackets only at this point, kits to follow (2-3 weeks).

    We are in Orangevale......

    We are primarily a Wholesale Manufacturer and OEM Manufacturer, we do not have a retail Location. We can arrange to pickup parts so you can save freight though. However we use USPS Flat rate Boxes whenever possible so shipping cost is not really an issue (9.45 anywhere in US for 70 lbs.).

    A clarification.....and correction.....

    :mad: I said 3.0" wide for perches, we make 3 widths of Spring perch, 2" for early CJ and MB series, 2.25" for later of the same, and 2.5" wide for GM, Toy and nearly everything else. I think I had 3.0" on my mind because we are adding those to our lineup. We make Ubolt plates to go with them and Cromo Ubolts too. The 2.0" wide perches are cut for the smaller diameter 2.5" axle tubes, the 2.25 are cut for the 2.75 diameter D44 tubes, and the 2.5 are cut 3.1 so they can quickly be sized for 3.0" - 3.25" tubes quickly. More clear I hope.....
