superpro bushings - how many are interested?

I'm trying to get a feel for how many would be interested in complete sets of superpro poly bushings. It's been a few years since the last bulk buy for these, so hopefully there are new members on here that want some. No distributors sell a kit , so they are roughy $400 for us in the states to have a complete set, since we have to buy each bushing individually. i don't know anything about price, so let's say at most $350 for now. I'm in for a set, so there's one....

You dont need the sway bar bushings or links, you can get those cheaper and easier through Energy Suspension. When we did the bulk buy a few years ago I think it was $250 or so per person, I'm not sure why those prices are so high.

hmmm..I got this pricing from another supplier..i'm not sure if they do bulk buys though:


Front
SPF1278-80K $22.99
SPF1278-70K $22.99
SPF0903K $9.99
SPF0360-_ _K $8.99


Rear
SPF2066K $62.99
SPF2071K $32.99
SPF0903K $9.99
SPF0903-4K $5.99
SPF2064K $29.99

SPF2065K $29.99


totals $236.90 - this doesn't make sense...this price would probably be better than a bulk buy with the other guys (185performance). I have to follow up with them and see why they are priced so high. I'll post when I get a reply.

We shouldn't be really. These are 2 US based distributors, and I stated my zip code in my email to them. As of today, $410 AUD = $306.88 USD, so the conversion doesn't match. Thanks for bringing it up though :) , I didn't think of that, so I'll definitely ask them about it.

The first place was just totally expensive. I've never seen them quoted at that high a price. The second place (with the $236 total) seems more in line.

Did you factor in shipping from Aus?

Mind sharing who you got this quote from?

they don't have a listing for the parts, but they are an authorized US distributor for superpro. I was told to get back to them with the number of people interested so he could give me a price on bulk buy. I don't think many are interested, unfortunately the first price I posted probably scared a lot off.

KingMarty: When the fulcrum suspensions site is back up, download the superpro catalogue and take a look. I'm pretty sure that most of the components for the 4ws rear should be different. Remember, they don't have a kit, so these are all just individual parts put together in an order. Should be no big deal if you have 4ws.

KYProbe: I'm with you, I'd like to get these ASAP. So right now, it looks like we have 4.5 people only :shrug: Not much of a bulk buy, but I sent an email to kastlecorner asking for a price for a BB for 10 people. If the price I get back is ok, then maybe a few people will come on, and I'll post on probetalk to get more interested.

Mods, I just realized this was moved to FS engine/mechanical....shouldn't we be in wheels/tires/suspension?

i had a quote made here in Holland and it was mega uber expensive.

>Front-
>SPF1278-80K 69,80<control arm lower- front bushing
>SPF1278-70K 69,70<control arm lower- rear bushing
>
>
>Rear-
>SPF2066K 145,20<control arm inner, front & rear bushing
>SPF2071K 74,80<control arm outer, front & rear bushing
>SPF2064K 54,05<trailing arm - front bushing
>SPF2065K 71,85<trailing arm - rear bushing


all prices in Euro´s


so for me it would be best to get in some sort of bulkbuy or have someone order the stuff for me.

dutch, I'm waiting to hear back from 185performance and kastlecorner about their discounted prices. If nothing comes of it, I'm still planning on ordering from the best price of the two. I'll post the reply when I get it.
that sux about your distributor in holland. Have you contacted fulcrum suspensions in australia about any authorized distributors in europe? It could give you a couple more leads. If not, I'd be more than happy to help you get a set from here :tup:
