unida767, if you get a chance could you list the parts from the kit with their respective part numbers, I am stationed in Germany so I figure I can get them here cheaper then buying the whole kit from the states and shipping it here would kill me.

I think you'll find you're in the best country to buy these parts. Part numbers and Aussie dollar.

BV61-18K001-BCC $187
BV61-18045-BCC $187
BV61-18080-BAF two of $190
AV61-5A771-CB $67
AV61-5482-CB $162

The springs are the M-5300-S kit - the only non-Euro part.
Good luck and post results.

It is much firmer - but not harsh. AUS roads are not the greatest. Much less roll on corners, car feels more planted "on rails".

Glad the pics and measurements helped. No - I had my local Goodyear (who did my wheels) do it and realignment for me. I don't have the skills and despite being assured I could do it I wanted a guarantee on the work.
