    Tube Service Company
    1107 E Jackson St. Phoenix, AZ. 85034
    (602) 267-9865

    Only place in town I could find DOM. I have some 1.5 x .250 DOM if you just want a tie rod. I don't think I have enough for the links though...

    Yep, I just bought a stick. It's a SOB aint it? Blew me away too but I just sucked it up and got it. Several people on Pirate told me it was priced about right so I got it. Marv also told me that was the going rate for what he gets. DOM aint cheap. Maybe you, me, Marv, and others that want the high grade tube could get together and buy enough to get a price break? Not sure what that would entail but I can call the guy down there and find out. I'll *try* to remember do that tomorrow and report back. Now, where did I leave the phone? Who am I? What was I doing? Errrr... /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    usually price breaks don't come untill your buying steel by the ton from what I've seen. Nice part about that is you can get a mix of anything, but that's a hell of alot of steel to put in the backyard

    Nope havn't tried Gledale steel but i think i'm just going to sleeve 2 .120 wall tubing together and that should get me close enough and it will only run about $2.50 a foot for both tubing.
