Hey all,

I have recently been looking around, getting quotes for some new suspension for my 99 V8 Au fairlane. My Pedders quote came back at around the $2300 mark. Does this seem right???

I just wanted to lower it at about low/superlow height and a camber kit would also be needed.

I just wanted to know if anyone else has done similar to their cars, and if so, how much did you get it for and where?

Cheers in advance

Should cost that much. Cant you get springs for 2-300, then a camber caster around $150. Pedders are known to be bit rich.

Maybe they also quoted on replacing upper and lower bushes? Not really worth going to all the trouble of lowering if they have had it or the Shocks?

There are 4 lower bushes that do wear, they are $187.00 per side (Gen Ford)
also, 4 upper bushes; $32.00 per side.
Depending on the brand of shocks that could add to it as well. Your Ball joints may not be great as well.

Maybe ya need to ask for a break down of the price you got?

Does that include new upper shock mounts? The IRS ones fail really easy

I was quoted about a $1k when I was considering it last year and that was for springs and shocks all around. $2,300 sounds a bit much.

Also from Brisbane, you could try Driveline Services Brisbane:

http://www.driveline.com.au/prod_suspension.htm

They make a shock specifically for AU-BA falcons and its awesome - comparable to konis, but way cheaper. The product is made by them and called durashock - http://www.durashocksuspension.com.au/p ... erview.php

Just noticed you can get the durashock product up your way. Can't comment on prices and service of these fitters though:

Coolum Beach QLD 4573
Phone: +61 7 5446 2077
Facsimilie: +61 7 5446 2477

Sunshine Coast CV
139 Eumundi Road
Noosaville QLD 4565
Phone: +61 7 5442 4111
Facsimilie: +61 7 5449 0956

My experience with Brisbane Driveline Services and durashock has been very good. They use superpro bushes too....heaps cheaper than fulcrum who offer the same.

The shocks are fantastic. Pedders are crazily expensive. Good luck!

Joe
