    well at a whopping $1.50 for lug nuts times 32, it gets expensive. and the u bolts were 13 or so each, plates were 11. i guess it goes along with the "you play, you pay" line. now all i need are new tires so it wont look like a mexican chico ride, all jacked up with 16" chromies, and /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif215/85R16/forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif/forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif tires.

    We just picked up lug nuts for my buddy's 89 Blazer (3/4 ton conversion) and found them for $1.12 each...cdn$$ though.

    U-bolts cost me $35 cdn for 4

    Spring plates I've never had to buy, but $11 sounds reasonable.

    <font color="blue">I have been waiting over almost 2 months for the body shop to straighten my frame. The guys who own it are freinds of my father so they are giving me a deal, but it has to wait until they're not busy. If I had known it would have taken this long, I would have just paid full price /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Yes. Patience is not *my* virtue. I hate down time for my truck. The only good thing is that when I get to drive it again, it is always a kick. The old "absence makes the heart grow fonder" addage. I need serious /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif I like my /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif too much!
