      once tooling is made for that piece, its no way near that price
      that tooling is cheap too, just a couple stampings, a bend, and weld it up. Then all you have to do is dip it in chrome...
      Trust me, there is nothing to it

      Eibach Bars are Aluminium
      Now price out the cost of the metals and someone to tig weld it all together

      IIRC Oval Aluminum HSS (Hollow structural sections) in large quantities 100 + feet.
      Would cost my company $62.30(CDN) a foot...... stuff aint cheap, and it's not widely carried by metal suppliers. Special order.

      somebody give me one for a week, i'll throw it on the CAD, get it quoted, and sell them for $200 a pop. Exact replicas, no problem at all [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I laugh whenver I see these posts because I have one at home that I've never used. I bought it brand new 10 or 11 years ago and it is still in it's box. No I won't sell it.
