Vendors for Suspension Overhaul

I live in Vancouver and AFAIK there is nowhere I can go and just purchase all the parts at reasonable prices. Parts are much cheaper in the US but shipping to Canada horrible. Free Trade was created for businesses and does nothing to help the average citizen. I can get parts shipped to the US side of the border and then drive across and bring back ~$350 without getting charged duty and taxes by the border guards.

Canadian Tire
They carry Michelin Pilot Super Sport for $251/$296 (front/rear).
Tire rake is cheaper but there is no road hazard warranty for Canada, with shipping, brokerage fees and duty the difference is less than $150.

Tire Rack
Koni FSD price is $765 + $58 shipping direct to Canada.

ECS Tuning
ECS Carbon Fiber Strut Bar Kit for $170

Pelican Parts
They have been my go to vendor for good parts at reasonable prices. Iím planning on ordering most of the bits and pieces in one or two orders each less than the ~$350 border guard limit.
