Shipping springs need help

I have a guy that will give me his YJ springs off a 94 for free if I pay the shipping. He got a quote from mailboxs for $140 to ship from Arizona to Mich. They told him it was to big to ship UPS. This seems odd to me and would like your assistance. Who has shipped springs before and what companies have given good service. I have web sites for freightquote, UPS, Shipitzone. I want to keep it cheep and make it easy on the guy giving me the springs. Thanks for your help.

Don't force it, just get a bigger hammer.

Re: Shipping springs need help

NOOOOO its not too large to ship ups, thats how i got mine. mine arrived in boxes. the might well have a *large package* fee added to it. but their not too large to ship through ups. i use them everyday. but shipping will be expensive any way you go. those buggers are heavy, plus there are 4 of them. check with somebody who you know that ships ups every day n find out what it will cost. the ups shippers at kroger n pack&ships and the like *USUALLY* wont touch a shipment like that.

UPS will ship up to 150 lbs. My springs and shackles from Calmini was around $75. That was from California to North Carolina. Maybe the guy is trying to make some money off you! (just kidding)

Re: Shipping springs need help

When I got my 4" HD Superlift springs they came UPS and they were MUCH heavier than stock YJ springs. They were all taped together and the tag was just affixed to the outside.

I looked into shipping the YJ springs I have and it was $87 for all 4 to the middle of the US. Look at the website, they will take them based on the weight and size. I posted the weights of the various sizes on this BBS before if you want to do a search.

Re: Shipping springs need help

I had one pair of front CJ springs shipped for about $20 from out west to Maryland. I couldn't see spending more than what JEEPN said for shipping.

Thanks for all the help. It appears that Fedex is the cheapest from their web site. It should be no more than 50.oo but lets see when he gets there.

Springs I recieved by UPS were seperate & not in boxes - just get him to wire-tie the bushings in the shackle ends & send them on --
