Perhaps there are some race shops you could order out of a catalog... but I lived in San Diego for awhile and dealt with Brian Goodwin several times. I ordered my Heliums and a couple other things from him. He offered a discount for SDMC members for a long time... don't know if that still applies. If you're in LA/OC, you might want to contact SoCalm and see if there are any shops up that way.

Your profile says SoCal, but if that's San Diego, then you can just drive over to Brians warehouse and pick them up if he's stocking them... save on shipping. I don't think you can do cheaper... and you certainly can't beat his knowledge when it comes to the products he sells. The guy knows his ****. You may find out after talking with him that another product fits your intended application.

Just throwing this out there as I have never used them before but they seem to know what they're doing. I don't know what they carry though. I think they do alot with bilsteins.

Adrenaline Racing in OR could do it but im guessing Wide's seller will have a better price.
