    Hey guys, I had a bad experience with a vendor and I don't know how to go about fixing it. I won't name the vendor because I don't want to blast anyone, but you can figure out who it is if you've read some of my other posts. Ordered a front K-member, took a while to receive it, which was ok, they built it...but then I didn't receive the coilovers for another month after I got the K-member and no one even said anything about it until I called. The K-member was not specific to my car as ordered. The hardware was the wrong size (crush sleeves were too short for the frame...no one sells tubing that thickness and ID/OD around me, so I had to spend a day riding around looking for the right size tubing), the control arm bushing sleeves were all different lengths, the lower control arm openings were also different widths. And then I ordered a steering shaft kit, mostly because I didn't feel like fabricating anything...well, I got the wrong stuff...and it took almost 2 months to get here. I checked all my order confirmations and in all of my orders I specify the car that the parts are for and what I need. When I call them they are always helpful, but I am tired of waiting for parts.

    Yeah....same thing happened to me. Same vendor. If there had been another option I would have cancelled my order after the first month but I. Didn't. I just kept calling until they made it right.

    I hope it’s not the AJE Colt 65. I bought his K Member and lower control arm’s last year and just about to install the K member.

    Its obviously the AJE kit. Aren't they the only company making those? They look great in the ads. But when you see one up close the lack of quality shines through. I don't know how those things pass tech.
