That is the price I got quoted from Repco, Super cheap is priced better. But you should have checked Ebay front or rear sets going for $119 low or superlows. same price for Lovells. Or even contact King Springs direct.

Agreed, definitely normally around $120 a pair. Keep in mind though if you're getting em off ebay, you'll most likely need to pay for postage as well.

Might be worthwhile getting a refund from Repco if they're still unopened, and buying them elsewhere.

Can always buy them from elsewhere and take the new unopened ones back to Repco for the refund. Not that I a faithful Repco employee would ever suggest doing that...
If I was you buddy, find somewhere that they are advertised cheaper, get a written quote or something go back to Repco and ask for the price difference back. Repco has a price matching policy and if there anything like us over here they'll be more than happy to do it for you - unless your dealing with some a***hole!
O, and by the way, the price they charged you is the normal retail price that comes up on the computers. Repco's prices are an absolute joke on a lot of stuff though. One of the main problems is Repco takes no noticeof companys RRP's for there products, often listing them for a higher price. Guess it's gotta be working somewhat if there still in business right?
