I think it would be better for you to order and have shipped to yourself, this way you know what you are getting... When you get to Houston, go to a UPS store and ask if they will take the shipment for you... Worked for me...
Then take it to a class 8 truck shop and have them install, with no waiting for parts, and the correct parts!!!

And, I will PAY MORE ATTENTION to mechanics who order "equivalents." I am sure these are fine for most situations on most trucks, but sometimes not. I don't wanna be the "sometimes" anymore.

Seguin Diesel is on your way to Houston


I know that they used to work on a lot of birds, but my. understanding was that they got too busy working on the oilfield trucks. Since the price of crude is down, they may be back working on birds.

Trust me, it is a PITA.
We did all 4 airbags on our first bus (82FC33) and it was a fiasco. We used a reputable truck shop and had the guy order the bags based on our outdated part number.
Waited....they finally came in and were totally wrong. Told him again what we needed and he assured us, he would get it. Waited again....and they were wrong. Took one of them out and put it in his hand and you guessed it....got it wrong a 3rd time. Finally listened to Randy, went to TruckSprings and the right ones were ordered and installed.
