    thats about right. I've sold sets for that amount. Of course your gonna spend another $45 in new bushings, and $65 on a raised arm, not to mention need new ubolts.

    If he was going to scam anyone, he would have done it by now.

    I'd do it. Ask him if he would ship fed-ex and that would save a ton on shipping.

    Plan on taking the springs apart and sanding them. Being from Indiana they're gonna have lots of rust between the leaves. They use road salt like mad around there. Cleaning and painting them will make them ride much smoother. :laugh:

    I sent him a message to ask for shipping to my zip. I'm wanting to buy them if shipping is fair enough. Man, I hate the suspense of waiting since he has it listed "buy it now" and I'm not going to til I find out shipping quotes first. :doah:

    It's doesn't exactly strike me as a being a "too good to be true deal"........I mean c'mon, it's a pair of old rusty leaf springs of unknown manufacturer or age. By the time you factor in buying all of the other misc. new parts you need to due the lift kit correctly it probably won't be much cheaper than buying some complete generic kit.
