Tappin-and-a-Talkin on my DroidX
I am mostly. I have my front control arms all poly, my rear is stock or massive camber and toe arms with poly or no bushing at all. Lol. He uses some metal parts in them. I love it, but im a bit of a nut.

Billy, sir william, whatever other name you can think of. As just doing a rear end slrucing myself, its going to cost you a pretty penny.

Contol arms - 160 each
Toe and camber arms - 300?
Poly bushing set - 250?
POR15 - 30
Cut off wheel and sawzall blades, brushes, paint thinner or prep material, new bolts 150.
Suspension kit (coils 1100)
Thats just the rear. Mtx swap, your lookin at 2k to do it right.

You need whole engine harness, dash harness, pedals, and a bunch of other parts, cv's, master cylinder and other odds and ends. Ecu, keys, pats, blah blah blah.

It can be done in a few days but you need good friends, lots of beer and taco bell/pizza and about 500 bucks cash for spare parts.
