I didn't check the price the first time and almost s**t my pants when I saw how much it was!
That's a great price, I paid about $400 just for springs. So that's about $400 for the shocks and Monroe are a good quality brand, I'd say that's a good option man.

No need to roll the guards, the tyre only barely peeks in to the guard plus dropping it that much gets the perfect amount of negative camber, I don't think I'll even be using a camber kit to adjust mine because they're sitting exactly where I want them now.

It's a HUGE pain in the a** to change pull that s**t in and out though. Seriously recommend a rattle gun, holly crap I wish I had one to do mine!!
I'll have a video on how to do it some time in the next few days

Nah you can do it yourself man! It's a pain in the a** and I hated every minute of it, but I didn't have to pay a few hundred for someone else to do it! :D
Obviously you'll have to take it somewhere for the wheel alignment though, but that doesn't cost very much.
