just quickly guys, i just went down to my holden spares place and they quoted me $440 for FE2 suspension and a set of 4 standard replacement shockies, does that sound about right or do you guys think im paying too much?

also, the bloke quoted me $135 for new window seals!!! (my windows have sucked the inside seals back inside the doors) im gonna hafta find somewhere else that makes them i think, fook paying that much for some pieces of rubber.

im also on the hunt for rims, i wanna grab some genuine holden rims wit rubber (17"s) anybody got any suggestions on what they think would look good on my car and how much id be payin straight from holden (i wanna get them brand new genuine)

cheers
Josh

Are the shocks and springs new? I payed $170 for superlow kings springs (12 months old) and a pair of front standard Monroe GAS shocks (12 months ols) Both in top condition, then I payed $117 for rear superlow springs and $107 for rear shortened Monroe GAS shocks. Total $392. DIY installation.

lol yeah i kno that much, i like the look of them though... something to save for i guess :D

i just wanna get a good looking set of 17"s because IMO mags make or break a car... i just thought id go genuine to give it a uniform look.. if i find something better then i might start looking into other things..


cheers
