Default Best place to buy carrier shim kits

I need to buy a carrier shim kit for my dana 60, where's the best place to order them from? Already have bearings so I wouldn't need a master kit or anything like that, just shims.

There's a guy on here that has a website... I tried to find it again, but no luck.

Great prices on everything, from around the Flint area... thought it was rob's machine shop or something.

I tried.

I ordered my mini kit from automasters in Grand Rapids... but I picked up since they ended up being cheaper with no shipping.

Your local carquest or auto value place can probably help you out.

Looks like summit is the cheapest so far from what I've found.

Wish I could have but they got destroyed when taking the bearings off. Ended up ordering the shim kit from summit, I was able to get 2 kits for the price of one through all the other sites. 2 kits shipped to the door $15.98. Most other places wanted $17-20 for one kit shipped......
