Is that the Nothalane kit I was looking at that for later down the track meant to be awesome let us know how the car feels after you have it in.
will do, its gona be stiff thats for sure! even with out driving it, the steering feels a hell of alot stiffer from the steering rack and the steering rod/shaft bushes! i look farward to driving it, got to get the motor in tomorow :-)

I haven't tried to get a price here but does it work out cheaper importing into Australia a product that is made here and shipped to the US? http://www.nolathane.com.au/
I might add I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case!
well nolathane dint even do many rubbers for the z (only strut bar), i tryed that first, i rang all the suspension joints and car joints around, and they couldn't get much at all! all the could get me is - strut bar, steering rack, trany mounts, and sway bar bushes. What they could get was going to cost well over half of what i paid! so importing worked out way cheaper, id say half price :-)

I recently bought the same kit through Black Dragon Auto in the US and have almost completed the front end. Had the same problem in not being able to find all of the bushings from the local parts suppliers. The quality seems very good and it will be much stiffer. I have also replaced the ball joints, tie rod ends, upper bearings and strut inserts. I hope to have the car ready for a wheel alignment this weekend then looking forward to seeing how it handles.
how much did the kit cost you? and i hope you have a press (my naboure has one ) for the old control arm bushes!

Some other learnings from the job: loosen the top nut (do not remove it) on the strut before removing the assembly from the car because you still have leverage if it is very tight. Do the same for the bolts on the stearing arm for the same reason. If you have taken the strut assembly out of the car and you have trouble getting the force to loosen these then try mounting the tire back on the axle then get somebody to stand on the tire while you loosen the nut and bolts.
Good Luck with the job

ie the catalogue has dims of all their bushes, i actually own one, ie motortraders just said 'here you know more about these than us.'
even @ trade buy price, probly still up for about the 250-270$ mark for everything.
