Where to get locally RTAB shims for E36 M3

Does anyone know where I can get rear trailing arm bushing (RTAB) shims or otherwise called side enforcers locally in the GTA? They are like urethane pucks that go on either side of each RTAB to reduce lateral movement for increased life as well as improved turning response. There are 4 in a set.

Companies like GC, Ireland engineering, Turner all sell them but wondering if I can get them locally first?

Please let me know
Thanks

Although Ive seen the Turner shims and they look awesome. Theya re also aluminum.

I dont want any squeaks though. Let me know

We can check with Bryan too I guess... not sure if he has them in stock.

I have the GC ones. No issues so far, no squeaking either.

OK guys, maybe Ill see if we can get a few guys to order the shims and then get a better deal or maybe free shipping or some crap like that.

So you want some too jasper?

Julian, Does powerflex make shims or just the entire urethane bushing?

Im gonna call Tunerworks now.

I think I paid $60US for them, and I got them from Mpact motorsports.

Powerflex makes fully urethane bushings.

OK, I tried to get in touch with Tunerworks, couldnt yesterday so I will get in touch with them early next week.

OK, so I just want to get an idea of who wants them again so perhaps I can go in with a bit of leverage and maybe get a good deal out of it.

So far im guessing that these people are interested

Vlad
Jasper
Mark

and me so far....

Anyone else interested chime in
