I got mine here in SoCal for $128.00 hub to hub at Ecology Salvage.
This was a half price sale. It is as easy as these guys said, just a couple
of simple spacers aand a bracket for the steering box. Oh and if you don't
like it you can litereally remove it and put your stock stuff back in. Try
that with a Camarrow clip!! I haven't got my fenders back in place yet.
But, from pictures I've seen, it looks pretty much stock. The only problem
I've seen, is because the track is wider, then you don't get to run deep
dish wheels on the front. But if you're after a stock look, it is one great
setup. Man, those rotors look positively huge compared to the MII 9"ers!
