Cheapest/Best place to buy BDS products?

Yeah, kinda like the title says. Where's the cheapest/best place to buy BDS stuff? I've decided to get their lift/springs. On their website you can buy for a price, then I did a quick ebay and found a vendor who's selling the same alot cheaper. Where's the best place?

The vendor posted a 10% off coupon code on jeepforum, which is valid throughout March. Free shipping if you have the item shipped to a BDS vendor. The BDS site lists local vendors.

It works line this, you can either buy direct and pay list plus freight with no sales tax (that is usually how it works) or buy from a local retailer who can set their own pricing.

My place took 15% off and charged no freight but then I paid sales tax.

The site lists all the local retailers.

Yeah. Been there. BDS price is 414.53 for the base kit. A vendor on Ebay is selling the same kit for 394 w/free shipping. I get leary about the warranty if I purchase from Ebay. I was just wondering if there was anyone else.

Buy from an authorized dealer. If the eBay seller is than you should be fine.

I have a BDS 2" lift and I did a lot of web searching and I found there were not many discounting their products. Most of the prices were the same including ebay. I found one vendor that had a holliday coupon active on their web site (way past christmas) and an error in their shipping calculator. All of which made it a slightly cheaper deal. (I ended up splitting the shipping cost). Google is your friend, so shop around and see what you find.

With regards to the warranty, read what's on their site (it's there). Unless it specifys "AUTHORIZED DEALER" which I don't believe it does, you are fine.
