Re: ECE - closing business

This stinks. Best place to get suspension parts for a Chevy truck. Thanks for posting though, I need a set of big block 2Ē drop spring for my 427 swap. Discount helped but didnít even cover shipping but happy to have them.

Like everyone else I hate to see this news! I've used a lot of their products and have nothing but good things to say.

Re: ECE - closing business

Hate to hear this news. Pretty competitive market I'm sure. They were just one of the few companies that knew their stuff when you called.

I saw this posted on FB as well. I went ahead and grabbed some lenses for taillights, reverse lights, and front turn signals... along with some flasher relays.

Shutting down by the looks of it. Drop kits aren't on the website anymore so once inventory is sold out that looks like that is it.

Re: ECE - closing business

Really sucks.

Who you guys recommend for disc brake kits now?

I went and saved some of their tech writeups before they are gone.

Re: ECE - closing business

They’re going with 20% off on anything left in stock! I guess that’s the only plus.

Re: ECE - closing business

Does anyone else make factory height conversion spindles for a 1970 C/10 so that I can swap to 1971 disc brakes but keep the rest of my front end components 1970? ECE was the only place I had seen those spindles and I’m not seeing them listed anymore.

I thought CPP Makes stock height spindles. I have a set on my 1968. Looking at their website and on ebay and summit I can't find them right now. You might call them and ask.
