I have the kit sitting her in the house, as I have decided to wait to install it after the winter. I'll have it on early this spring...can't wait for winter to be over!!

How much did you pay for this kit in Canada, or did you have it shipped from the US?

I think standard install would be 4 hours labor for your springs and struts

Probably 30 min for each sway bar

My bet $4-500

Shocks/struts, springs, and rear bar are straightforward. The front bar install requires a lot more work.

DEREKC, Do you have a set of calipers to measure the front bar diameter? It may not be worth installing. I'd also be interested in the rear bar diameter and any part numbers possibly on the shocks.
