    After ordering two sets of springs from Scott at Deaver in May they shipped on 6/28 and still waiting for them to arrive.

    Apparently there freight company vision express decided they didn’t have enough drivers and put them on a train from California.

    Delivery date was 7/6 so we made an apt with our mechanic for the full day on 7/9.

    Every day tracking said they would be delivered that day.

    Asked Scott to look into it and we are not happy that a company would change our delivery method that we paid for without notice.

    Well they were to be delivered today and still no springs.

    So anyone else that is planning an install and shipped via vision express get ready for a long wait with no springs in sight.

    Not a happy camper and our mechanic is pissed for costing him a full day of work.

    Sounds like your good.

    I purchased mine directly with Scott at Deaver. Had to go direct to get +2 HD (L83HD) and my brother wanted the stock set that they re-spring for towing. had I known to ship to my house rather than mechanic as they wanted a business address I would most likely have them and put them on myself.

    I will install my SVC bumps tomorrow in the hopes the springs show up......

    Enjoy man!

    ^ To be fair this is not really Deavers fault. Sure they were freighted through a company that Deaver picked but things happen. I would never schedule an installation before having the parts in hand. Should just waited it out before booking your mechanic.

    I bought mine from FordRaptorLights and luckily I live kinda close to deaver like 60 miles away so I had them install directly and Scott and his staff are very nice guys.

    Hope you get your springs sooner than later tho.

    It is absolutely the shipping company not deaver but it’s been so long that I’m not happy being told it will be delivered the next day for a full week.
