great quality for the price

August 28, 2014
Great quality for the price and fit like a glove. The product came within 2 days fantastic! I am sorry to say I was unable to use the product because it made the rear end to high for my application so I had to make up new ones that would fit my build. I will keep these that I purchased from you for my next build. It took a lot of time to make my own I wish the ones I purchased from you would have worked out.
Pros:
  • Quality and price
Yes, I recommend this product.
