I just went to order the re 3.5 superflex kit, steering stabilizer, track bar and transfer case drop and the shipping rate was 150 dollars i was just wondering if that sounded right to anyone it seems expensive to me.
I always shop around and do the math. I figure some places charge less on the parts and make it up in shipping. Some don't. I always call ahead for a quote for shipping or freight and then play vendors against each other to see what discounts or promotions magically appear. Sometimes it is fun, sometimes frustrating.
Are you ordering OnLine or over the phone. I have found that you will save money if you Call on the phone to place an order. I do the research online, and almost always order over the phone. This way I have been able to find a kit on the web I want, and when I call I am able to modify the kit some, different parts and upgrades. and pay less for the kit and the shipping.
get that online quote and take it to a local shop to price match it. thats how i got my kit.
Or another online company that price matches. I usually shop around and call quadratec with the better prices. They will price match and I still get my stuff usually the next day with regular shipping costs.(because im in nj) Its awesome!

4x4groupbuy is still cheaper after you include shocks at northridge Monotubes and OMEs run about 300 bucks. If i recall 4x4gb includes OMEs but they gave me monotubes cause they were out of stock on the OMEs.

Cool, I just noticed the free shipping deal when I was shopping for my latest lift. I ended up going with a Rough Country 3" straight from RC, ended up being the best deal I found for what I wanted. On another purchase I got a set of Yukon axles from groupbuy, with shipping and all about 75 bucks cheaper than I could have got them from Randy's Ring and Pinion. When they arrived they were shipped directly from Randy's?????
The whole point is it pays to shop around and do your research.
