no exact figures, just a rough idea?
or what it cost if someones done it?

my mate got EL GT replicas for $1300 w/ remoulded tyres

suspension - again about $1300 or so should be right all-around - that seems about the norm for lowering w/ new shockies & springs :wink:

Yeah go the snorkel, it looks nicer at least. :)

And for my susp it cost $745 for the springs and the shockies with allignment of course. Didn't get a camber kit as it isn't really that much lower than stock to worry about it, no problems with tyre wear here (at least not from the suspension :lol:).

And yeah for rims probably set aside about $1000 - $1500 depending on what you want and how s**t you want your tyres to be. :)

rims...budget at least 1500...

but the suspension

do it yourself for $500 easily...low spings (king all round) n gt shocks n struts...i think mine was $489 in the end after about 3 days of pricing around + $40 for the wheel alignment YOU NEED to have done afterwards else ull stuff ur wheels.

having it installed tho,....add another 1k for sure so around 1200-1500.
