strut insert for the front, and whole replacement for the rear.

Grab matching springs like Eibach, a better match than Kings springs.

Hey Danz, how much to do the whole suspension?

ie: Springs

Shoks

Sway bars

Srut tension bar

Poly bushes

Have I missed anything? :huh:

Looking somewhere between 2 - 2.5k I'd say. Maybe more.

Try Suspension City... they'll hook you up with the lot i'm sure.

41-43 Provost Street, North Melbourne

Telephone: 9329 5133

That's where most of us Melbournians have had our suspensions worked on.

I am running coilover.

Donnellans quoted me 1400 for konis installed. I think that comes with spring also, not quite sure.

Don't forget camber kit. I found King spring to be too soft, something firm such as Eibach is a better buy. Or H&R. Tein S-Tech is also soft, so no good.

My reccomendation, grab coilover, camber kit (if not included with the coilover), sway bars, and optional front strut bar for extra rigidty. Our good friend here in this forum, Pippy, can grab you a set at bargain rate, I think he still got the G-Force coilover on sale. Check out buy&sell section, it's there.

My drivers door got jammed inbetween the hoist wen they lowered my car.. n the doors bent on the corner now.. :(

$90 for installation??!!!! That's bloody cheap!! I got quoted $300 by a local workshop without wheel allignment and $420 by Pedders which includes wheel allignment. But i guess i won't be getting any free bumper scratches or door jamming happening :P

I asked my dealer ship if I install a suspension kit if it would effect my warranty, they said it would but only

around the parts asociated to the suspension kit. Do any of these aftermarket installers offer warranty

on the parts and labour? Also how long?

I just bought my baby so I realy don't want to have any warranty issues.

Not shore what to do, but I know shes screaming for it!

Pls HELP!!!

I called Pedders in Footscray (Melb) and got a quote on the following:

Noltec coilover shocks and springs

Signiture swaybars front 22mm and rear 18mm

Pollyurathane bushes

Signiture strutt bar

Pedders camber kit front and rear 1.5 degrees all round

Roughly around the $3000 mark

Is it a good price???

I just went to a suspension place to get a price on installing and the guy said he had to drill a hole in the front struts in order to install them is that right? :huh:

I guess they have to, because your standard strut will have to be taken out and in the Koni strut insert.

U can ditch the swaybars, they are small size, infact the rear is standard size being 18mm. Whiteline makes 24mm front and 22mm rear.

for 3000 dollars, I suggest you go buy cusco zero 2 coilover suspension which comes with camber top mount and TRD rear sway bar that is 23mm in thickness and TRD front strut bar.

if ur willing to spend that much money on sussy and ur serious about being a handling gimp, than like Danz suggests, buy the zero 2s and specify a 12kg/mm - 8kg/mm spring rate instead of the standard 7kg/mm - 5kg/mm.

u can also get urself sum strut bars n sways with the left over change...

happy turning :)

Of all the stuff you've listed above i haven't heard of any of it apart from pedders camber kit and I didn't think that you could adjust camber on the rear.(when you lower it you'll have about -1 degree camber anyway). Sway bars sound like direct replacements for stock and if anybody has heard of noltec and signiture then please explain :blink:
