More than likely it WOULD be cheaper to buy them yourself and find a mech who will fit for you.
Look on Ebay and see if you can find some.

Try this bloke. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Quality-Long ... 337a745527

Or even cheaper again to buy the hub set, and fit it yourself if you want to save some money. I imagine that they are a similar setup to previous falcons, if so, they are a simple job and an easy way to save a bit of coin. Though I could be wrong... Worth looking into it.
