Hensley spring bar grease fitting

Has anyone found another supplier for these beside Hensley. I was thinking about buying a couple just to have along, just in case I need them. But at close to $50 to have two mailed to me seams like a lot for what they are.

My next trip isn't till January so I thought I'd look into an alternative, if there is one.

Hensley grease fittings

If that is what they charge that would be enough reason for me to go with a pro pride.

I was a little suprized, $16.75 each and $16.13 to mail. I just bought some 9/16" wet bolts for my suspension and they were only $5 at the local supply store.

Did you express your disgust in that outrageous price for parts and shipping with Hensley?

I'm pretty sure the only stock parts of that assembly are the zerk and the spring. Everything else is purpose built for that use.

I made some for myself, threaded rod, bar stock and some time on a metal lathe...
