I purchased them online at SD Truck Springs. Re-read my first post in this thread for the details.
We already discussed earlier in this thread doing front only and my opinion is, don't mess around. Buy both front and rear Hellwigs and install them. It took me and my buddy 6 hrs to do it and you do have to have some serious tools. I've mentioned some of them earlier, like the torque multiplier. I ended up doing both for under $1000.00 + my labor. If you pay someone else to install them, plan on 6 hrs of shop labor x their shop hourly rate.
The Ford OE hardware is Mickey Mouse stuff compared to the Hellwig parts.
If you do order from SD Truck Springs, be advised they have the bars and hardware kits drop shipped from Hellwig directly to the buyer. In my case, it took a tick over 2 weeks from order, to delivery.
