Two questions...

How much have people payed to get their nolathane enhancement kits installed? So far I'm getting most places saying "ummmm.... um... I don't know..." ... I've had ball park figures of $350 to $960..... :shock:

Also... What would I be able to do myself with normal tools? What is easy and what is hard? What would I have to get a suspension place to do?

I'm fairly savvy with the spanner... But I'm also getting increasingly lazy as I do more things to my car...... :roll:

This what they contain...

FRONT:
Inner lower control arm bushes
Shim adjustable upper arm bushes / camber kit
Shock Absorber to lower control arm
Shock Absorber upper body bush
Radius rod to control arm bush
Radius rod to K-Frame bush
Sway bar bushes – ordered via fax
Sway bar link bushes

REAR:
Shock Absorber lower bushes
Shock Absorber upper bushes
Sway bar bushes – ordered via fax
Sway bar link bushes
Lower trailing arm bushes
Upper trailing arm bushes
Watts link rod bushes
Watts link pivot bush

its plenty of hard work. if i had more tools and more time i would have enjoyed it a lot more.

but with an IT student, hillbilly in a 70's land rover, trips in to town and fairly basic tools we got it done in the pouring rain in a car park over 3 days

i bought my evoford3 full nolathane kit for $550 delivered new from ringwood on ebay.
cost me 3 hours at a mechanic @$77 per hr including a wheel allignmet and camber adjustments etc
tip use a small mechanic instead of a suspension joint .
go in and speak to them when it looks like there not busy and leave your mobile number for when they have spare time/ no work on
hope this helps

actually superpro are softer meaning they don't last as long as nolathane. Was told this by a superpro rep of all people. It just gives a more comfortable ride. But they are much better than standard still

harder plastics are more prone to detonate, less give.
