Re: suspension problems for EA
I got KYB excels struts for $130 for the front pair, $60 for the rear shocks and $190 for front and rear lowered Kings Springs.
Tie rods should take about 15mins to change, 30mins tops. Also don't bother with buying a pickle fork (seperator), just smash the knuckle holding the balljoint shaft with a heavy lump hammer once you have lossened the nut.
Also my brother is not very mechanically inclined and he changed his steering rack himself in 2 hours with basic hand tools.
