You know they're a sponsor on here right? lol

And those shipping costs usually also include handling which some forget that it costs money to gather parts and package them. just saying

X2, try shipping a small box thru UPS sometime, I just did to New Jersey (2 States Away) for something small and under 5 Lbs. It was $13 from MD to NJ via UPS, so I'd man up and pay the $15 bro. CFM is in no way trying to dick you over, thats probably realistic as they ship via UPS most of the time that I've bought stuff from them.

Well you guys know "United Sates Postal Office" ship's stuff super cheap. I had a guy on here send me four Zetec pistons with rods and rings in just the right size box for $10.50. And I think he was in Salt lake city, UT.

I've visited them once on Vacation with my family lol, they are some great guys, I could have talked for hours. I bought an exhaust and flex pipe while there. It was cheaper to ship the exhaust than to buy it right there due to Florida's state tax, and they were right. It might sound expensive, but think of the equipment used to the make the hangers, the shipping from the supplier to the retailer, storage, then repacking, then reshipping, and so on. So really your getting a decent deal IMO. Also considering that stock replacement hangers that you can get at Vatozone and other auto parts stores cost 5 bucks each, sooo the CFM hangers are a even better deal. I don't really see it getting any better than that.

Your asking someone to take time out of their day to get something from a place and then take it to another place and ship it to your home to save a couple bucks? Even if they save you 5-10 bucks in shipping how much do you plan on giving them for taking the time out of their day to do this for you?

Ask them to ship via USPS Parcel Post. That'll be cheaper. You just damn well better not need them for a while, because it's gonna be a month before you see them!

yeah I get idiots bitching about shipping cost all the time and whining why I don't ship with the post office. Because I want your item to arrive and UPS isn't that costly if you realize the complexities of running a profitable logistics network.
