Mandrel bends?

Well it's time to build a full exhaust on my rig and I need to buy some mandrel bends. Who is the best local place to buy these from? I was going to buy a kit online but the shipping totally kills it!

Thanks

I have just bought them through lordco i get a decent discount
So not worth the time to run around
usually don't have size I want in store but get it same day
kms car in coq Has a bunch hanging on wall
Price it out and check kits to
The prebent flowmaster kit for my chevelle was cheaper than buying the bends
And a lot less hastle than welding a bunch of pieces together
And fit nice considering I have a nine inch and my body mounts have been moved to clear the big tires and it's a wagon

Good to know, maybe I'll just go to lordco and order some up.

I've been looking at diy kits but nothing seems to really be suitable. Seeing as I need 2 1/4" and 3" bends. That and nobody is gonna make an exhaust that will work on my truck the way it's currently built.

Thanks!

The only shop I know that has a mandrel bender is muffler teck
They quoted me 1200 for three inch for my chevelle me supplying mufflers Not to many shops are willing to invest a little more than 100 k for a mandrel bender that takes up a entire bay
It would be nice to get a pipe bent one piece over welding pieces together
Sometimes the pipe is pretty thin on the outside of the bends
Makes it a bitch mig welding it
