GAZ Production Times
The average Gaz production time from receiving our order is 4 weeks.
This can increase and decrease depending on their current production run and during their peak seasons.
Gaz deal with hundreds of orders a week and they will not give us an exact date as to when a customer’s order will be ready. The orders arrive to our premises and upon checking them we then dispatch to the customer by courier.
Fabrication & Spring Production Times
The average suspension spring production time is 1 – 2 days. All springs are custom made by the manufacturer.
The production time can increase and decrease depending on their current production run and during their peak seasons.
Although we do keep some items in stock the majority of products are custom made. This means that once the order has been submitted and the goods produced they are non-returnable.
The reason we do not hold many items in stock is that they can be revised or updated regularly by the manufacturer and we would not want to sell an older product to a customer.
Our website will always show an item in stock even if an item is custom made. The reason for this is that if the item was showing as out of stock you would be unable to purchase the item whether custom made or not.
If you wish to check whether we do infact have an item in stock then please call us and we will confirm.
More and more customers believe we offer a custom fabrication service for exact fitment down to the mm to their vehicle. This is not a service we offer.
Although we retail after market parts they have all been test fitted by the manufacturer to the associated vehicle before the goods were ever marketed for retail sale. All parts fit the vehicle they were designed for.
However all commercial vehicles have a tolerance during production and no commercial vehicle will ever be identical. The same care is not taken by a manufacturer for a commercial vehicle as it would be on a £200000 sports car.
Here are some examples of custom fabrication emails we have received:-
1) My spring O/D is 3mm different from your spring – can you change it!
2) My leaf spring locating pin is 5mm different – can you change it!
3) The front spring you sent me looks different to mine – I want the spring to look the same as the original spring!
4) The holes in the adjustable brackets you sent are not suitable for me – I would like them changed to my settings!
5) I am not happy with the colour of my spring – I would like a gloss black finish!
6) The rear of my vehicle is not low enough – Can you produce me a spring lower than what you retail!
7) I want your springs to fit another model type – Can you make them fit!
The above list is not endless and is only a small example of requests we have received.
As above there is a tolerance with the part that is being fitted to the vehicle.
Customers will not need to weld, bend, drill, fold or make any major modifications to parts unless the vehicle tolerance where the original part was fitted is substantially different. Something we are seeing more and more with Ford as tolerances increase as well as parts fitted from older years to newer vehicles.
If this is the case a minor modification may need to be made to the vehicle and not the part itself for it to fit correctly.
