With these trucks, you're better just to travel a little further to someone reputable. Being that you're so close to Justin at JMB, I'd recommend there. He's one of the best around.

Hopefully in person his manner is better than on the phone. I bought the rear spring clamp kit on his website. Waited over a week, no e-mail response with a ship date or tracking #. After 10 days gave a call. "Hi, I ordered the rear spring kit online, and I am calling to see when it might ship, or do you have a tracking #?"

All I get on the other end..."I'm still makin' it Bud". Click, call ended. Got it 2 weeks after that. No track #, just showed up at the door. Maybe my $160 plus an overpriced $18 to ship is no big deal. And I had to write another e-mail for the instruction sheet.

You guys can stroke him all day long. I am not impressed.
