Hotchkis 1.5 lowering springs price

Getting ready to order my leaf springs and noticed they are actually cheaper through Summit than through Hotchkis. At least part numbers are the same. Summit-429.95, Hotchkis-523.95. Am I missing something here? You would think the opposite. PN is 2407c.

You're not missing anything. Most manufacturers would rather have you by from their dealers than directly from them.

I ordered mine through Jegs for the same reason. Much cheaper, especially when you factor in shipping. Hotchkis will even tell you it's cheaper to order from one of the big suppliers, rather than going direct.

Go with summit you also will have cheaper shipping...much cheaper. Savings all around.Get peverything you need from summit and save even more with your shipping. I bought my wheels from summit and it was $10.00 to ship all four of them!!

You can also find free shipping from some of the dealers (i.e. summit).

Wow, that's a great price. I like Ricks, and have shopped there a ton for very specific parts, but have always found Jegs and Summit to be cheaper for Hotchkis, Speed Tech, Global West, etc.

I just priced the Hotchkis 1.5" leafs:

Rick's was $584 plus $58.48 shipping = $642.48
Hotchkis was 522.95 plus $77.46 shipping = $600.41
Jegs was $419 plus $13.99 shipping = $432.99

Definitely shop around. Not sure where the $400 from Rick's came from.
