I just got these babies installed this weekend

OMG what difference they make!

The whole car feels like a race car

Although I haven't started with power mods yet, I can truly feel the connection with car and the driver.

Everything has just gotten tighter. The car brakes better, handles even much better and even accelerates cleaner without lag.

I have one question though. The shop owners didn't replace my ALK because he said ALK is better than STi bushings.

Can anyone tell me how much different they're?

Did you get the whole bushing set ( rear lateral links and trailing arms, front control arm bushings etc), or just some of them? Where did you get them from and $$$?

I'm more curious regarding the details of the installation. I assume you had someone perform the installation? What was involved and how much did it end up costing you(cost, hours)?

Yes I did get the whole bushing set

I bought most of them from forum member and rest from vermont sports car.

Of course there is no way i can get these in without hydraulic press.

Very labor intensive - Expect 8hr labor quote. I got it done for $480
