These seem a lot more cost effective. $80 per pair. That's including bushings, crush sleeve and greasable hardware. Assuming you want greasable hardware.

Otherwise, you could probably find 4 grade 8 nuts and bolts for about $20 at Home Depot.

if so, i'm surprised he doesn't put an add up somewhere, he'd probably sell a lot of these things, and glad to see i'm not the only one buying them. now if they suck we will both be S.O.L. haha

The maker is on the board here. Sells them for the same costs here without the need of EBay (probably works out better for him too, as there is no EBay fees!!!).

I've heard quality is top notch. I'm looking to buy 2 sets (F&R) but didn't get that far.

I would stick with the set Timmy69 has a link too. They appear to be the smae ones I ordered fron 4wheel drive hardeware for 59$. They are made by corwn automotive. They are actually a really quality set for the money.
You also get new bushings an everything with the ones from 4whl drv hardware

I saw them a couple of weeks ago and meant to mention them, I had them in my watched list to order in the future. The fella that makes them is a fellow veteran and Jeeper. I'd be more than happy to support his business.

I bought a (2) sets from bersk, they are very nice and I would buy them again. It's just a thick piece of steel cut out with a CNC machine. No different than if you paid more and ordered them through some manufacturer/store.
