      No worries. I've been meaning to put it in my comments section. Not like people read it though, I always get PMed questions that were answered already in the thread. Oh well, it's nice to help people out for a change.

      I don't think that they install suspension kits that they don't sell. It would be a couple hundred I assume for an actual shop to install.

      If it's your first time installing suspension, I'd even recommend posting in your regional forum and see if someone might be willing to give you a hand learning how to do it? Maybe there would be someone willing to guide you so you know how in the future. I had my boyfriend help me, because I had never changed suspension other than cup kits on mk1/2's. Sometimes people are willing to help.

      I did read that also, totally forgot about it. I recall there being a picture of the top of one of the struts that threw me off because I couldn't tell what he has kept or changed out.
