    Theres a place in Fowler road just off South Gippsland Hwy ( up Princes Hwy end) they done mine a couple of years ago .
    It takes the best part of a day including a wheel alignment .Cost me about $300 all up

    you dont need a 4 point one in a VY toe in is adjustable from factory. you may only need camber adjustment (2 point).

    If your going really low then yes you will need the kit. Sorry can't help you with advice, I got mine professionally installed. I would rather fork out a few hundred dollars installation and make sure its done properly, then prematurely wear out sets of $280 tyres.

    Its best left to the pros , If you fit the kit yourself and then have to wait a week to get a wheel alignment and you still drive it you can do a fair bit of damage to the tyres in that time if the adjustment is not set up right

    WTF??? Whats wrong with just driving to you nearest tyre retailer and getting an alignment there and then??? Done it plenty of times.

    What i mean is if you put the kit in on the weekend and can't get the alignment done till the following weekend due to work commitments . Some places like the Bob Jane T mart in Dandenong tried to tell me i didn't have a 4 point kit in mine when i booked it in for get an alignment and Pedders said the didn't do alignments on 4 point kits .
