    get on the phone direct to FK.

    you may have to find a standard set of rears though in the meantime to get it through the MOT.

    German & Swedish are cheap also, they use the FK catalogue part numbers - it can all be had seperately if I recall.

    I am getting the bits from GSF £94 + VAT each,2 weeks lead time from FK in Germany. FK wouldnt sell direct so i had to choose a UK distro.

    I would recomend anyone looking for bits to ring and ask for Steve, as he is dead helpful IMO
