I Live in Arizona and Im interested, but the Auction lists $52 dollars shipping for a pair of shocks. Is this an error? Can you ship a cheaper way?

That's strange. Ebay automatically calculates shipping, and is usually pretty accurate.

When I checked the shipping to Blaine Washington (which is south of me, just across the border), it was $60.60

It posted $42.70 to OHIO! Also

Had links to 3 other ads for same/similar items that all had free shipping. Of course the price was higher, but I bought a set of these a couple years ago shipped from Texas to Ohio and shipping was nowhere near $42.00

Not sure what calculator is being used to figure shipping but it just seems like there's a wrong multiplier or something.

I hesitated posting, as I have absolutely nothing in this, just seems like you'd have better luck selling them if the shipping wasn't "askew".

Lower price+higher shipping = higher price+free shipping? I don't know, but I'd rather see the seller make the money as opposed to the post office or UPS or other shipping co..

I can attest to the fact that shipping costs HAVE gotten completely out of hand IMHO, but you know...with the price of fuel and all.........

If the sellers offering free shipping are having to pay these shipping rates, they have to be wondering if it was worth the effort! At least I would be.

Sure don't mean to hijack the thread, just curious why the shipping rate seems so high?


HAGO!

they have to be shipped ground because they are pressurized, but the prices for shipping others have seen is ridiculous. shouldnt be more than $15-$18

I actually never used the front shocks. I bought them as part of a package deal (here in the Mall, a few weeks ago). My Fiero is an '87, so they won't fit it. But I did use the struts... and they're really nice.

The Koni dampers are adjustable, so they can work with a wide range of spring rates. For example, the struts that I installed can be almost as soft as stock, or stiff as a board, or anything in between. That's the great thing about adjustable dampers.

Hopefully that answers your question.

Wow, eBay charged the buyer $60 for shipping. That's ridiculous! The actual shipping didn't cost anywhere near that. I decided to refund the excess shipping charges, because I actually have a conscience. No really, I do.

I just dropped them off at the post office. The package should be on your doorstep on Tuesday or Wednesday.
