Default Shock tower strut brace on eBay

Occasionally someone here is looking for a strut brace. I do not have any connection to this offering that I saw on eBay and think that it is too expensive.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

The picture is of the eBay purchased strut brace that I installed not long ago ($77).

I just won that one. It had part #67204 which comes back as manufactured by Freedom Design. Won it for $20.50 + $42 shipping, so $62.50 delivered... not too bad I guess since the 1st one mentioned was $80 but didn't specify shipping costs.

OK, the strut bar I won off eBay the guy left me a message that they don't have any and it was an error in the listing. He said to look on their site they have lots more car parts. I'm pretty pissed!

Wow. What BS. The listing sounded like it was a leftover item that was never used, not from a distributor. I hope you leave them negative feedback and file a complaint w/ eBay. It's not criminal because you're probably getting your money back, but this is crazy. I got the other one that was listed on eBay and paid a reasonable price. I'll be installing over the holiday weekend.

Yeah, I'm sure I'll get my money back but I am very disappointed. I normally don't like to leave negative feedback but I sure am thinking about it pretty hard. Glad you were able to scoop one up!

I feel your pain, I guess it is ok for the seller to back out of a contract. Leave the feedback he has earned it helps others in the future. I also hate to leave negatives but lately I've been having more and more problems with sellers on ebay. Either they are selling bootleg or the description does not match the actual item or plain inferior quality. The only way they will even consider doing the right thing is when you file a claim. I make then pay for return shipping. Unfortunately it is getting worse.

This morning I played dumb and messaged him "through eBay" asking when my item might ship as I didn't see a tracking # yet... it's 5:30pm and still no reply.
