try merchent metals in brighton. they are a fence supply. they carry that in 18, 21, and 24 foot lengths. just tell them your looking for 1 5/8 ss40. i think there import is the same thing also. the ss40 is a domestic though and a bit more expensive.

central iron is a jip, only really good for odds and ends. if you know what you need and what fair price is, call around.

My favorite local places to call:

Ellenbaas steel (in Greenville, good prices, depending)
Contractors Steel (28th & Dormax - this place has hands-down beaten all pricing on all of the large quantity steel orders I have ever purchased, and they deliver for $10 surcharge)

Harbor steel in muskegon is decent

alro is a ripoff

Check with your local hardware?

Mine was able to order anytype I wanted, he carried most of it already. They were cut to 10ft sticks already though, but he told me I could wait till his order came in and get them in 20ft lengths. he matched me about the same price as Alro and a couple other places.
