Hi, can anyone tell me the best brand for an underdrive for a BA falcon?
also i see some kits on ebay that dont sell the there kits with pulleys!!
i asked how cam and they replied, the balancer and belt is the only parts that need to be put on.
is this correct?

yes that is correct, but it is recommenced to do the idlers aswell, as from what ive heard the bearings wear out causing them to stiffen a little in turn give you more drag on your engine.
theirs a ebay seller called "Tuff car parts" he usually sells the complete kit for cheaper then the rest, and i believe hes a member of AFF.
also are you planing on installing these yourself? if so you may want to get a balancer puller.

Hit up Justin at Tuff Car Parts, sells the best kit around (powerbond) complete with all you need for a shade under $300. He is a sponsor on AFF so make sure you on there to get a discount. I think they actually just had an under drive group buy but from memory I think it was only another $20 off
