    Thanks Bradderz, just wanted feedback on makes, I ain't done any price research yet just found the link. Would these be the best option or are there better ones to go for?

    I have now decided to change my mind and go with 034 motorsport ones. In total they cost £450 all in, been on there website and a few forums and they also have great reviews. I have bought many items from 034 and have never been disapointed with the produst and service level.

    "it is IMPERATIVE that the suspension be compressed to static ride height before any suspension pivot bushings are tightened. If this is not done, bushings will tear as the twisting forces on them will be much higher than is intended."

    Pleased I read the T's & C's

    Well it is really or else you'd of just blown £450 down the drain just make sure you measure from wing to wheel whilst on the ground and when your ready to tighten place the wheel on with one bolt then adjust with a transmission jack to the right height take it off and then tighten those puppys up jobs a good un !!!

    Is that inc shipping ???
