agreed i wouldn't mind knowing what the gross duration, lobe seperation and a few other thigns are. but really, does it mattter that much to me that i am going to run down a reputable company with great customer service on an internet forum?
at least call preston or jeff adn tell them what your beef is with the product.
the only way things get better is by suggesting improvements.
in all reality, it's probably not gruppe-s' packaging, it's the way they come from teh factory where they are packed. bitch about the company that makes them and probabaly packages them, not the salesmen.
as for what backwards swamp i live in, who really cares. i have no internet ego to bolster. i buy my parts from teh same places that ya'll do. ONLINE.
i like my welds to look pretty as well, when they are in places that can be seen without crawling under the car.
my whole point is does pretty packaging really matter? seriously, unless you're going to frame your parts instead of installing them, the packaging gets trashed anyway. waste not want not. it's stuff that you're not payign for, stuff that is not built in to already jacked up prices.
