ive just done the rear shocks + springs +bushes.......took way longer than 1.2hrs, more like 2days.....tends to happen when you dont have the right tools to start with :(........I went King Superlows + sensatracks.....ive heard bad storys about that combination, but ahhhh well........
give us some pics :)
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
I went with the same combo, king superlows and sensatraks on my 95 Ef Fairmont, the result has been excellent. The car rides and handles a heap better. It also looks a lot better than the standard ass in the air Fairmont stance.
I wimped out and got my mechanic to do it, as I have a tendency to stuff things up. My knowledge and ability runs out after filter and oil changes.
Driving a HSV is like masturbating with a cheese grater - slighly amusing but mostly painful
it cost me $180 for the springs (kings superlows) and $230 for the 2 front struts and the 2 rear shocks(all are monreo GT Gas with reflex technology) also got a bush kit for free. Everything was at mates rates.
Installation cost nothing as i did it myself. It is not that hard....
Good by my EA S Pack
