    Evenin' all,

    I got a quote today for fitting my suspension, rear bushes, front ARB mount bushes and steering rack bush - £350

    I'm supplying all the bits, price includes proper suspension geo after fitting.

    Sound fair?

    yes
    its around a 100 for the proper 4 wheel alignment.
    £250 for the rest sounds about right

    Won't need 4 wheel alignment on a FWD car... 50 notes for a front wheel alignment...

    At just over half a days work with one person doing the work seems about right...

    Can't you fit the suspension yourself?... not a particularly difficult job realistically

    I would mate but it's the rear bushes that are putting me off, can these been done on the drive? Steering rack mount bush and ARB mount bushes are fairly straight forward.

    Plan on replacing the rear suspension top mounts, are the ones from ECP or TPS OK or should I go genuine?

    If you buy from TPS then it's genuine - everything from TPS is :)
