LMC Leaf spring parts compared to Filling Station

I am looking to buy a bunch of suspension parts like leaf spring shackles and shock mounts and stuff and find that LMC is HALF the cost of the Filling station.

Half the cost scares me like Harbor Freight. Have any of you bought this stuff, is it a good quality?

I thought I had posted this here many months ago and searched for it and couldn't find the thread.

I also need lower shock mounts for a 55 passenger car as that is the rear end I am using and they end up being around $100 at Danchuk I guess that's the best place for them.

1948 Chevy pickup
Chopped, Sectioned, 1953 Corvette 235 powered. Once was even 401 Buick mid engined with the carburetor right between the seats!
Bought with paper route money in 1973 when I was 15.

Re: LMC Leaf spring parts compared to Filling Station

Have you checked Rock Auto to see what they have? I've bought quite a bit of suspension pieces off them over the past few years or use their part numbers for Moog or Delco to search Ebay for pieces that are listed by number but don't show the application. That has saved me a ton of money on the front end of my 71 3/4 ton.,suspension

The difference in cost between LMC and the Filling Station might be their buying power on certain items.
