4 tubular arms for $300 is a good price. I would check on the manufacture. In the air suspension biz, there are some companies making some pretty low quality parts.

LOL Thats because people just want cheap, how do you think AIM has made a career for themselfs. It sucks for the people like us trying to push quality, but people usually learn the hard way.

Yeah, but people don't learn. Aim has had the worst rep in the business since the 80's, and are still open. The guy that started this thread is in arizona, and not far from AIM, so he really needs to watch it when it comes to someone local getting him deals.
When I typed that, I was thinking of that other guy in texas building arms. I saw a post of his saying he was going to get into hot rod and street rod parts. I can't wait

Are you talking about BYC? He is having enough trouble trying to stay ahead of the orders as it is...Thats good for him I suppose. A waiting list for your products is always good to have.
Later,

He isn't backed up from getting to many orders, he is backed up because he isn't shipping them.

Hey Duece, if you want to do your censorship BS thouroughly, you should also delete the company name weimer's post to. I was at least decent enough not to name them in my posts.

Yeah but me and simplicity do have a businesses competeing with aim. Why did you leave those posts ? If you want to give excuses, give some that make sense.
I didn't say I was leaving, here is the quote "Censorship is bull****, and if you are this petty, I will gladly move on." And that post was made before I had read your reply back telling me to go. I would think by the time someone reaches your age, that being given so little authority as a internet forum monitor, you wouldn't let that authority go to your head. Way to go, buddy, your in charge and just showed it.
LMFAO....
The only reason I am here now, is to turn off the email notification of replies. I am now done, feel free to close my account.

Lo Blo, this is the link to AIM:

http://www.truckn-store.com/product_list.asp?id=2250

Over the years people have chosen to bash them for various reasons. Some justified but some to my mind simply because they thought it was the "thing" to do. The thread at s10forums comes to mind in that regards where people jumped on the bandwagon without having any personal reason to do so. Personally I have had no problems with anything I purchased from them, but I do have to admit I would be hesitant about purchasing the tubular arms or any kind of valves or bags from them. Items I have acquired through them were shaved door handle kits (they shipped autoloc's), roll pans, and other miscellaneous non structural items.

The issue simply is buyer beware and remember: Believe only half of what you see and nothing you hear.
