i ordered the kit- they are still out there. went to install it. had done three corners in just over a hour. got started on the passenger side rear and ran into trouble. unbolted the absorber just fine but when i went to unbolt the control arm the bolt grabbed the bushing sleeve and seized into place. the bushing started to crumble apart and the bolt is still stuck in place. apparently the bushings are non serviceable and i have to replace the whole arm. luckily there are a few in stock ($140) a hour away.
