Got mines! Sadly no extra bolt, but still happy. Seem to be very nice pieces and packaged very well. Can't wait for front uppers and a solution to compression arms!
wow that was faster then their predicted time of arrival! they said wednesday on my system.Got mines! Sadly no extra bolt, but still happy. Seem to be very nice pieces and packaged very well. Can't wait for front uppers and a solution to compression arms!
Awesome, do you have the extra bolt thats in the game i am playing (read above some posts)I got mine too. They look great. Definitely showed up unexpectedly. The tracking said Wednesday delivery. The packaging looked like it did well, it didn't seem like they moved around inside of it.
Speaking of upper front control arms, any word on when those are going to start?
I thought that aswel and thought if i had hard internal padding it would be safe but anything else would still hurt it if it was dropped, i shall write all this down and next time see about padding the bottom and top with some protectant then relying on just the 2 walls of the fedex box over the bubble stuff, another layer of padding is always a good thing i guess.I think the packaging was great. The only way I could see improving it at all would be to pad the top and bottom more. If the box fell 6 or so foot and landed on the top or bottom skinny side I could see it bending a mounting tab or something but I'm not complaining at all. I'm very satisfied.
Thanks for those, i shall in future tape the ends up to stop the slipping out, i thought it was tight enought but i guess i was wrong, sorry about that,Took photos as I received for your viewing pleasure Bobby, overall no damage to the parts but as said before some arms slid out just a bit but no enough to hurt it. Noticed a little hole on the bottom of the bag of bolts some washers fell out through that but that's it everything is accounted for. Thank you again Bobby!

Thank you, i will get this shipping down to an art i see it after its done which dont help.I also received mine today. Packaging looked great overall. Very impressed. I also second the taping of the ends of the bolt bags in the future. Mine was rubbed through and dropped two of the washers into the bottom of the package. Had there been any kind of hole there, they may very well have disappeared into the shipping ether. Other than that, the new bubble wrap that you chose looks to be very effective. I would recommend taping over the ends of each wrapped part in the future, if only to help further reduce the chance of shipping damage.
Also, no extra bolt for me.
Thanks for the pics and letting me know,My arms arrived on Wednesday in good shape. I didn't win the the 3rd bolt lottery though.
The box looks like it was tossed around a bit by Fed Ex, but the packaging held up pretty well. Two of the "bubbles" deflated and one of the arms slid to the bottom of the wrapping. Fastener package was still closed and in good shape when I opened the box. Nothing was scratched,bent or otherwise damaged, so I think it was packaged pretty well.
As for the arms, they look fantastic! They look extremely well made, welds, joints, coating and all. My project is a ways off from moving, but I look forward to the day I can install them.
Thanks for taking the time and effort to make parts for this platform!
