I'm just curious but, these metal washers look no different than any other washer. Why would this part cost 90 bucks?? seriously? someone could make some money getting a machine shop or manufacturer to make these for you and start selling them for half the price. You would still make a fortune. what is soooooo special about these? Don't other vehicles , cars etc. have similiar parts? and do they cost this much?

Someone just asked this question and there is a link to a thread somewhere explaining why. They aren't your everyday washer that you find at your local hardware store.
Each one is hand made and made a specific hardness. There is more to it than that also.

These are not ordinary metal washers and they are extremely time consuming to make. They also must be shipped to a couple of different companies to have all the processes completed which gets expensive.
They are made from a special metal of which is proprietary
They are cut, heat treated, ground, lapped to ensure they are perfectly flat, blasted for the proper texture and polished. They are very tedious to make and quite frankly, $90 is a bargain.
I invite you to use the hardware store washers. Let us know how it goes

I already ordered the washers from jerry and about 1200 bucks in other stuff. I only asked why a pair of washers cost so much. Seems to hit a nerve with some people I guess if questions are asked
