VX Executive Wagon
Im wanting to drop my vx wagon and was wondering if anyone can give me some rough estimates on costs. I want super lows all round and will obviously need new shocks and a camber kit, fully installed. Also if you could point me towards some quality products that wont rape my wallet.

thanks for your help.:thumbsup:

$240 for the springs if you buy em off eBay or a cheap parts place..
$140-180 to get the springs installed
$100 for normal shockers, you won't need shortened shockers for SL springs

You won't need a camber kit if you have a series 2 VX, it has an adustable control arm and all you'll need is a 4 wheel alignment..

An alignment is $45-110..

And I used King Springs, top product..

Normal shockers will stuff up in no time as they aren't really made to be compressed all the time

Normal shockers were $99 and shortened ones were $300..

It begs the question though, will stock shocks wear out 3 times faster?

Mine cost me $750.
Thats $300 for getting my springs (FE2) reset,
and $450 for KYB struts n shocks.
All installed.
It woulda cost me another $100 to have new springs made, but I didn't want any harder a ride than what I have now.
