Hey, if PICORP is still good, go with him. He's proven reliable several times over. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Getting the Wheeling Fever
Got an email back from PICORP. Here's the prices he gave me as of today:

5.38 R&P set (front and rear): $396.00

TF locker rear in 28 spline: $424.00

EMS cost: $150.00

I have never purchased overseas, but I'm guessing EMS is for shipping through customs? All told its a lot less than how much I paid to put 4.88s in my wifes TJ. It only took him a couple days to respond, and that was over the weekend. Seems pretty reliable and whatnot, so if I can come up with the money, I'm going to jump on it. Thanks for your help guys! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

By the way, it would be going in this.

I had no problems at all with transactions thru PICORP, they normally charge a few more dollars in PayPal fees though.
I think EMS is the courier service, mine arrived pretty quickly to Australia.

Finally got my 5.38's installed, vehicle seems much happier pushing the bigger tyres now.
Expecting the fuel economy to improve too, will offset the cost <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Hi Davey,

Did you use standard collapsible spacer or were you able to source solid spacers and shims.

I had sent an email to Spence Weir several weeks/months ago regarding spacers for the Sportage and a possible group-buy. I never received a response. I can try calling him soon. He was quick to respond before. I'm at a loss as to why he's lost in the ether...

My last lot of correspondence with spence appears that he had lost all information and specs regarding the spacers he made for you Peabody.

I even resent him all the information you forwarded to me.

the impression I got he does not want to make them.

Hope you have better luck <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />
