Anyone deal with Boca Bearing Company?

So I ordered these bearings from eBay, from a vendor named bocabearingcompany....

I ordered them on 1/30/15, and received 'something' from them on 2/6/15, which was 4 of 7 bearings that I ordered.

I ordered a complete set of mini-z bearings for a mr-03, which includes 7 bearings; 4 for the front, and 3 for the rear.

I only received the 4 for the front...so I start a complaint ticket and contact the seller....shortly I get a reply saying that they had a computer problem and that they were working on it and would ship the remainder of my order immediately. Well that was over a week ago and I have YET to get the rest of the bearings....

Has anyone had the same experience with them, and if not, I would advise to stay clear of them. Relatively high 'disapproval' rating in my opinion.

K, talked to the guy and we straightened it out.

He said he was shipping the 3 remaining bearings out today.

Hey, thanks for the contact info. Probably wasn't going to happen if I didn't call him.

And thanks to mleemor60 I have some for the interim, as well as a proper length drive shaft for my ceramic ball diff that came a little short. The rear end is starting to come together now....
