I got everything from Dom in I think about a month give or take and I love the suspension stuff it fits and looks great.

Unless he got help he was a 1 man show last I checked so you just need to deal with that fact when you order parts.
I would agree in most cases, but when the header is brand new there isn't an excuse. The window of tolerance is huge and to be off 3/4" is an "almost complete design".

With that said, there maybe a simple explanation, like, he sourced a new tubing bender and the old one had the golden recipe (what we call it in CNC programming). I'd give him the benefit of the doubt if he was upfront with his lead times. I have to quote jobs everyday and the potential customer always gets a time to completion estimate with each one.

It's great that the suspension parts fit nice (that is the part that will kill you if it failed), and they have always looked good in the pics I've seen! Post up some pics Bennyfocus and show off your goodies!
