Good thing I haven't taken the truck apart yet or I would be SOL until they sent my parts.


You must not have received our most current email to you we just got cleared to ship internationally we are have been unable to for the past four weeks so we are working through all of the orders in order of when they were place it could be a two weeks before we have a final shipping quote for you. the disc brake kit is also back ordered from the supplier some of the components to the disc brake kit are imported and are taking long to come in."

Not sure why they can't ship internationally. Nobody else that I've ordered from during these times has an issue. But I will give them the benefit of the doubt because I don't know.

I also don't know why they need to quote my shipping? I paid $169 flat rate... I think that should cover it plenty no? Not sure why it would change..

They also billed me 100% up front (almost $1200USD) even though sounds like it will be a 4 week delay (ordered April 29th) to ship the in stock parts, and no idea on ETA for the back ordered items.

Sucks because the sale had good prices, and the CPP kit is more money and says it won't arrive until end of June/early July. I would cancel and go with them if it seemed any better.

Sad that ECE is gone..
That is the longest one sentence crock of crap Iíve ever read.

Re: Brothers Order M.I.A. ?

I have pretty good luck with Brothers. I will admit I'm local to them so I just go into their store and get what I need. It is not a big outfit, I would guess maybe 10 employees or so. There is a good possibility that shipments to them are also getting delayed and with not having a big warehouse shipments out of there are suffering.

Granted, they need to step up on customer service/communications. An email doesn't take that long.

Re: Brothers Order M.I.A. ?

I agree sometimes stuff happens but. You should not have to wait on hold up to 45 minutes every time you call. And they should not send out a e-mail stating that your order is shipped just to find out a week later that it still has not been shipped and in fact still waiting on parts to put the kit together. With me anyway it happens every time I order from them so Im done. But on the plus side I do enjoy some of there how too video's some good info there.

Re: Brothers Order M.I.A. ?

I emailed yesterday and cancelled my order. Found a full 5 lug disc brake setup (front and rear) from a 72 local to me for $120 with new master/booster.

The quickest reply yet was to confirm they issued my refund in full which was appreciated. No hard feelings really to brothers because I know it is different times right now... they have some parts that I want that I’ve only found on their site.. so I’ll try again once this is all over..

Re: Brothers Order M.I.A. ?

I placed a large order ($2k) with Brothers last month. First time I have used them. Got an email confirmation they received the order and then silence for weeks, despite several emails requesting status. I did finally start to get parts, in multiple smaller shipments. Ultimately I have received parts that are damaged (inside door handles with the alum piece already fallen off inside the sealed plastic bag), inaccurate parts compared to the online description (visor brackets in gray primer v. black paint) and completely missing parts (emblems, grille trim, etc). They never responded to my email asking for these issue to be corrected. So finally, after waiting on hold for over 20mins, I did talk to someone who indicated the missing parts would be shipped out directly. That was over a week ago. Guess what, still no parts. No email with a tracking number. Nothing. Silence.

I have shifted all of my parts orders now to Classic Parts, Classic Industries, Ecklers or as a last resort LMC. All reply to emails and ship their parts out in a timely manner. I don't see going back to Brothers any time soon.

Re: Brothers Order M.I.A. ?

Add me to the list of people who are fed up with Brothers. I need rear window trim and foolishly ordered it from them over a week ago. Got the email saying they received the order and would normally ship out in a day or two. Fast forward to this week, checked their website and under "my orders" it says it has been completed and shipped. Awesome, can finally get the truck to a glass shop and get the front/rear glass installed and drive this thing after 1.5 years of being in paint hell. Emailed them yesterday just to verify this has actually shipped, and got no response. Well, just got an email that said it is in line and will PROBABLY SHIP IN 3 TO 4 DAYS. Are you effing kidding me, after their website says it already shipped??? So, I get this corona virus is messing things up, but taking two weeks to even get around to shipping the product while their website (which they encourage you to use instead of actually talking to someone) says it has shipped and is on the way.

I am done with them, it's just too bad Wes or Paul don't carry the trim, I would have ordered from them first. Just cancelled the order with Brothers and reordered from Classic.

The mayor of LA is a complete idiot, wants to keep LA county on lockdown now until there is a complete cure for covid 19, so that should be figured in. BUT, Brothers is in Corona, which is in Riverside county, next to LA county. They have no excuse for such poor performance, they are now last on my list.

Rant over (for now).

Re: Brothers Order M.I.A. ?

After some bad experiences I always check parts availability before I order. It doesn't matter to me who it is. If it is out of stock or back ordered. I look else were. I have found Classic muscle out of Winston-Salem to fill my needs.
