    Hi Canadians, I'm looking for the best Stinger vendor I can order the Eibach rear sway bar along with other parts from that won't leave me with a ridiculous unexpected customs/duties bill.

    Who have you ordered from that has all those fees upfront or shipping in a way you avoided those fees?

    Is there a close US border town that you can open a mailbox and have US sourced parts delivered to . I use Blaine Washington here , works great

    eBay as it discloses and you pay the import fees up front. That’s where I purchased my Eibach springs.

    Great idea but that's way too much effort for just buying some parts here and there for personal use.

    That would be great except that I haven't been able to find any ebay suppliers that ship just the rear bar to Canada, only a listing for both bars which I don't need.

    Try messaging the sellers to see if they’ll create a custom listing for you with just the rear sway. I’ve had luck with that in the past.

    So that was obviously the first thing I did which resulted in one trusted looking vendor in Toronto who doesnt have it listed on their site.

    Good find. I've also used Tdotperformance.ca

    They have a smaller selection but a bit better pricing (free shipping).

    Sadly for the OP, neither site has the individual sway bars

    Shipping to the border all the way for me, even if I have a 3 hour drive each way to retrieve my stuff - I consider it extra bonding time with the Stinger ... :thumbup: Hard to tell how that might work for you - it really helps if you add your location to your profile.

    Most parts you can get free shipping in the U.S., and the cost to have them received and stored for pickup at the border is nominal. I usually pay 4 USD for normal sized packages, and I believe that covers storage up to 3 months. I typically will order a few things before a trip, to better cover the gas and time.

    I've yet to pay any duty, (though that is a possibility with some special classes of goods), and you don't pay any brokerage bringing it over yourself. Depending on how busy they are, sometimes I get waved through and don't pay any tax (GST) either - another 5 percent saving here, considerably more in other provinces. :)

    Interesting. I've never tried shipping to the border. How do you go about setting that up?

    My folks are snowbirds so I usually get them to bring me back smaller items but this sounds appealing for larger things.

    There are two different outfits just a couple hundred meters over the border in Sweetgrass, Montana (my closest crossing) that provide basically the same service.

    I typically use these guys - I just sent them an initial email to register, and that's all they required to put me on file. Once registered, whenever packages arrive with my name (using their shipping address) they send me an email that it's ready to pick up. I'm typically tracking it with the shipping company as well, anyway. They also have another location in Eureka, MT which is near another border crossing a little further west if I'm out that way.

    Montana Shipping Outlet... Your U.S. shipping address

    You don't mention your location in SK, but do a Google search for your nearest crossing and 'border shipping'. If there isn't a U.S. town and border shipping company right across from that border crossing, chances are pretty good there will be an outfit not too far down the road. :thumbup:
