You better go raise hell at the usps office. Your profile says you live in Alaska Its a long ride out there but come on now. Those parts look used It might not be a big deal to some people but you paid for new parts.

That is totally the fault of the person who shipped it and and not the shipping service but UPS is very expensive to Alaska which is why I'm sure they used USPS but should have not skimped on flat rate box and packed in a more heavy duty box and make sure all bolts are bagged and taped to the arms even with a hole they won't fall out then. What brand of arms are they BTW ?

The mail man just recently complained to me about the large packages that I've recently had delivered through them, my response to him was "I'll make sure to use UPS from now on, they don't have a problem at all." It left him speechless. I'm serious too, I will go out of my way to make sure a vendor does not use USPS, the sooner that over paid delivery boy is looking for a real job the better.

I'd be livid - that's a lot of your hard earned money there I'm sure.

I shipped a set of of control arms to a JF member a couple years back using USPS - they ended up getting to him in the exact same condition except 2 of the CA's were missing! It wasn't a problem with how they were packaged, it was the piss poor treatment by USPS. I ended up refunding a good chunk of the buyers money and then went after USPS for the remainder...they paid out after some back and forth

good luck

I paid over $2000 for the lift. All sent ups except these. These were only insured for $200.

Brutal man. Regardless you should not be shelling out any extra $$ to correct this situation. How did you buy the arms? Reach out to the seller and show the pictures - it's his responsibility to deal with USPS

Usually anything sent from anywhere in the lower 48 arrives here in 2 days. anything from the Pacific NW in 24 hours. This box was mailed on the 27th of February and I got it yesterday. It wasn't in Alaska. Should of been here 2 days tops

Question; was this ordered from an official part warehouse or a private individual? there could be the reasoning why the package didn't survive..
It was ordered from a company with a good reputation. Postal service lost it. Seriously its their fault they should take care of it

Clearly the control arms weren't packaged correctly. They were thrown in the flat rate box and dumped at the post office. If the shipper took the time to properly secure the control arms in the box with packaging material, nothing would have happened. Did he have to fit them in there diagonally as well? You have no claim with usps and they will deny any claim you try to make. The shipper also insured for only $200? Again, poor effort on the shipper.

Those look like Savvy arms, but I could be wrong. I am sure Gerald will chime in ..

There was a empty yellow envelope in the box with the top torn off. I figure the bolts were in it when it was shipped. The joints are fine just the aluminum is beat ul. Which isnt a big deal. They are go I ng to get beat anyways
