The kit has all three of the bushes I think are mandatory (front radius rod and front strut top and rear X member) so you are good there on bushings.

I have the front CG struts installed on my car, waiting on the rear CGs to come in. The CGs are supposed to be 'stiffer' than stock but still suitable for OE springs.

If you are looking for basic while maintaining as close to stock feel as possible, this is probably a good place to start.

We have done lots of them and work out quite well. It is not as spectacular as a STREET II system, but you can definately tell the difference. Also when DMS does it, we also do a front and rear cradle align, and a 4 wheel align. This process fixes a lot of sins

If you are in the SF Bay area, I do have a STREET II sysem on a new 06 for you to road test

Frank can also set you up with some CG struts and shocks. Will give you much better control

Well, I've decided on 2151 up front and 2643 in the rear. Any suggestions on shocks? I'd also be interested in a price, shoot me a PM if you would w/ the info.

Frank did some cleaning in his warehouse and found he had three sets of CG struts and shocks on the shelves. We thought we were sold out of these. There are the ONLY three sets in the USA. We have more in transit, but those are four weeks out. If you want CGS this month...

Btw, Frank and all the Pedders Dealers are TEAM players. They will work together to take care of the customer.

wtf? the touring package doesn't really look all that hard to install... You could do it with a buddy in a couple hours i'm guessing - So long as you're some what know wtf you're doing.

Were they busy when you went maybe? just didn't want to get to it?

I mean, the more i think about $120 bucks an hour? jesus. average around here is like 65-85, MAYBE 100 at a really nice shop.

They best be using solid gold diamond encrusted tools at that price!
