Any recommendations? I went to Precision but was given a completely retarded price by a guy who seemed like the last thing he wanted to do was make a couple washers for me... He wanted 85 dollars a piece to make something like this:

He probably made the price high because it's not worth his time to make two dinky little washers. If it was super important you would have paid him the $85.

What are they for exactly? Adapt Skunk2 Coilover sleeve to a different shock, or for something else? Are they stepped or just flat?

http://www.imageinmotion.com in B.C., carries a full line of Skunk2 stuff. Maybe they can get it for you?

Yeah and as for Precision, Bernie can do really good work, but he's always a grump and always charges out the ass for anything.

Yeah they're just an adapter for Koni shocks for the Skunk2 sleeves, they are stepped but I don't see why they wouldn't work not being stepped.

if you call them, they probably would ship to Canada ive ordered my fair share of parts. It might be a PITA, to call but if it saves you the extra buck its worth it

Well If you can get away with it being flat, and it's just the perch for the coilover sleeve to go on, you could use just a large flat washer, or a shaft collar, both of which you can get locally for $1 a washer or about $5 for a shaft collar.

You would just take a digital caliper to your shock body and see how big it is, and then go to CMS and get the right washer. Shaft collars might have to be ordered in (hard to say what's in stock) through Bearing & Transmission (Applied Industrial Technologies is their new name), but they have the extra benefit of having as set screw in them. Actually B&T probably has a washer that fits in stock as well.





I would still try Imageinmotion first to see if they can get that Skunk2 part. It's more a matter of how long can you wait for this piece?

just reading these replies makes it seem like a lot of running around and measuring this n that when you could just order them from any skunk2 distributor...no?

I'd rather run around the city than have to wait a couple weeks. Called Image in Motion and thats how long they said I would have to wait.

I could almost bet, you wont find a machine shop that will make one of those for $15. Even if it took them less then an hour to make
