He called back (not to defend him or anything) to tell me that he called MR and that the order should be in within, or around, four days. To me, that was just curtious.

I just hope I can get my money back. We've all made mistakes, and this just adds another one to my long list, lol. The reason I chose that vendor is because of the prices, or at least advertised prices. Sucks. I'm very interested in what you have to say about MR products, though. Not hearing much bad stuff about them, other than from brand whores who say that they're cheap because of their cheap prices. I've actually heard good stuff about their products, from Z owners as well as from other car forums. But, being less experienced in the modding world, I can only go off of people's reviews, stats, etc. A lot of things in life we have to learn from experience and modding is no different. Unfortunately sometimes that cost us some green. Thanks for the reply Z1.

but when you ordered it before he said they were already coming in and should be with him in 4 days.....sounds curious, not courteous ;)

Advertised prices are one thing but as you're unfortunately finding out, a sale is alot more than just price! I won't bash another manufacturer that hasn't wronged me personally as it's just poor form. Suffice it to say, we're always looking for solid brands to offer, regardless of price, and have arguably the broadest selection of 350z/G35 suspension parts out there (and I've been fortunate enough to use alot of different stuff over the years!)

Thanks Z1 for the reply. If I may ask, what are some of the best that you've used and some of the worst (or that I should stay away from?)

Well, gotta letter from my bank today. Unfortunately, its not good news either. They turned my dispute down, so as of now, my money is not going to be replaced. BUT, they are going to file a claim with Visa. I really hope this works, cause losing a thousand bucks SUCKS (<<gross understatement).

Called the Sherrif&#39;s office of the town that this place is allegedly from, and they ARE a legit business. They are in the phone book and everything, at least. I wonder if they&#39;ve shut down for some reason, have moved, or something has caused them to change all their contact info and their website isn&#39;t updated (<<seems as if that&#39;d be a priority, though)? So, I&#39;m going to talk to a detective tomorrow. This will probably end up being a civil suit, but oh well.

UPDATE: Called the bank again today. The vile has already been claimed with VISA, and I should be getting my money back on Christmas day (give or take a day). Wow, what a Christmas present, lol.

Congrats! That&#39;s really good news! That would have sucked to have taken that kind of loss. Now you can get your suspension from a reputable seller! I&#39;ll sell you my Nismo S-tune suspension, haha!

I like it quite a bit. I got a really good deal on it otherwise I probably would have went another route though. It&#39;s not adjustable and the drop is only 3/4" so that kinda sucks. I daily drive my Z though so I like the fact that it is basically an OEM setup but lower and stiffer. I noticed a major positive change in handling performance after installing it.
