    guy on ebay selling Monroe version of a Timbren, it's call a Monroe Muscle load support, exact same thing as TImbrens. $115 plus $15 shipping. Only has a few left, so I don't know if he'd have yours. I thought by part number yours would be GMFK25C.
    do a search on ebay for reds garage or Monroe muscle

    Oh that's right, I forgot about that part. And since he was given the part number with the 35, that means he must have the stamped.
    Mine has the cast (not actually forged, but that would be nice:>)
    My bad!

    Timbren has instituted a minimum advertised price policy (MAP) for their distributors. It requires that all distributors advertise the Timbren kits at a price no lower than 15% off list price. Mill Supply sells the GMFK35C for $177(plus actual shipping of $8-$12) currently, but Timbren is cutting distributors off that advertise at a price below $194.95. This is why the kits have gotten much more expensive recently.

    Bought my Timbrens for my 97 K3500 with cast arms, thru a friend at cost....with shipping about 140 bucks.... I think at that price, they are stil overpriced for two pcs of rubber ( about half the size of a beer can) and a couple of bolts and washers.....


    BUT- I have to say they work good and I do like them....just cant figure out why so expensive???
