Whats the best place to get metal?
I have never bough metal before, I usually just buy it through my school so I dont know where to get it now that im out of school. Do home improvement stores carry metal? I thought this would be a good place to ask. Thanks
Poor college student.
here let me help you.
A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.
Although more expensive than my local suppliers, I'll get small quantities of odd-sizes from www.speedymetals.com. They've got a large assortment at "decent" online prices and ship quickly.
Depending on what you're looking for, you can probably go by a local welding shop and buy small quantities of whatever you need. That's how I typically get what I need, and I get it cheaper than through the local steel supplier. I actually got all the steel for my rockers + the bending done for an 18 pack.
