R-T diff mount Group Buy

Recommended Posts

Well, Just got back from the metal shop and paid a portion on the Mounts. But now I'm in the hole because Even though I specified CASH, USPS POSTAL Money Orders, or Wal-Mart Money Orders. Some insisted on Western Union, Personal and other forms, to pay me. It cost me $5 to cash anything other than what I requested as payment. Yes, It's my own fault because I haven't cleared up things with my last bank, and the check cashing place charges me for my own stupidity. It just cost me $20 to cash 4 checks and money orders.

So when I said I might make a few dollars on each one, that's now been changed to "I will not make barely anything on this venture" so it's all about you guys at this point. So if that doesn't show my love for you guys, nothin will.

Everythings been updated to this point and I will update again later today, when the postman shows up.

Dave

Nah, it's not your fault. You stated on the groupbuy what forms of payment you only accept. If I were you, I wouldn't have even taken the payment, or instead request additional payment for the fee before sending out the order.

As a moderate seller myself, it gets pretty irritating. I recently listed a set of rims on eBay, and on the very first line of the description I put "Local pickup only, any questions about shipping will be ignored". Well, within 12 hours, I got a first message asking how much to charge to ship to Cananda. :stupid::stupid::stupid:

I am not sure what kind of check my bank sends out. I thought it was a counter check which is the same as a cashiers check. I am certainly willing to make up the difference.

I quess I should have put it in big bold red letters. Oh well, If I was doing it only for money, I might be upset. But I'm obviously not so I'll live. Just 1 less Monster Import Energy Drink for the wife. She needs them to keep up with me. hahaha.

JonnyRock,

Thanks man, if ya got time, just deliver it yourself. You know you need a relaxing road trip and ya probably miss me too. Right? ROFLLOL

So by my count, After all 33 of the listed names have purchased their R/T mount,

I will have 17 R/T mounts left.

So If you're interested, but holding out, you may run out of time quickly, as they seem to be going fast. But don't make any rash decisions. Read every post and be sure of your purchase before going forward with your order.

I also want to Thank everyone for their orders and promises of orders thus far. It's all for you guys at this point. I might be able to afford one myself if I sell the remaining 17. I know my 240Z will be so much better off with one versus my bad stock mount and strap.

It's my pleasure Chuck. Let's just add $10 to the $60 and that should cover it. Hopefully. And Cash is awesome. Especially when dealing with Canadian Money orders and such.

Just make sure your address is clearly printed on your order so your order is not delayed.

Thanks again,

Dave

I'm sure we'll both be happy to see your Z NOT looking like a "Weeble Wobble" as you drive down the road. Your brakes will improve as well as handling, feel and cornering.

Weeble Wobbles are fun, but not when you're driving. We'll get ya fixed right up.

Kenz240z, Thanks for your order and I updated the list on Post #114

To Everyone who has paid, I just got word that I can possibly start picking up the mounts tomorrow afternoon (Tues, 11/24/09). Which means that everyones order will be at the post office on Weds morning. They will all (execpt for the Canadian orders) be shipped USPS Priority Mail. Which means you should see them by Sat, Monday at the latest.

Orders received on Wed. evening (our house is the last on the Postmans route) will be shipped on Friday morning. So all people from Vercingetorix to 70 Cam Guy should have their mounts very soon.

Thanks for your orders, pateince and Patronage.

Awesome, Thanks Darrel. Here's a picture of the 99101 in red.

Part Number: 99101

•All purpose bump stop for control arms, traction bars & leaf springs.

•Designed to be easily trimmed.

•2 1/8" tall, 2" dia.

•Includes 2 per set

99101R_lg.jpg

Does anyone (Darrel?) know how much (if any) to trim these bumpstops? when used in addition to the stock lower mount?

Not really. After bolting in the rt mount, raise the crossmember all the way up and measure the clearance from the top of the diff to the bottom of the rt mount. There may be differences between r-200 and r180.

A small floorjack would work well to raise the diff, unless you are using a lift then an exhaust stand would work.

By the way, There are only about 13 left (unspoken for) as of this morning (11/24/09 @ 10am) and probably less after I check the mail this evening. So keep this in mind while you decide on waiting.

Arne, I can't check that measurement for ya unless I tear the car apart. I cut my crossmember into 3-peices and 2 of them are holding my control arms to the car. Otherwise, I'd go and measure it for ya.

I'f I had to guess. When you see the R/T being used, and the crossmember is also mounted but without the stock mount, it looks like the diff is about 1" lower than stock. So if you use the stock mount and a bumper, you'd likely have to remove about 3/4" to 1" from the bump stop for is to sit directly above or on the diff. I would probably prefer it touching to eliminate ANY movement.

yes, 3x $60 is $180 but what's the extra $5 for? Is it for cashing the Personal check? Or cause ya love me and want me to be able to buy less than 2 gallons of gas? hahaha.

I'll mark you down for 3 more Guy. Trying to corner the market? Just Kiddin.

I'll add your name again to the list for the additional 3 so I don't get confused and accidentally put 4 in 1 box with only 1 paid for. It's a ME thing.

Thanks agian,

Dave
