The dealer in my country is asking $1200 for the rack!

Now Im browsing US sites and calculating shipping price.
The good feedback on this thread makes me more eager to get this rack ASAP.

According to his profile, he's in Kuwait. With how big the box is, with the shipping, duty, and currency conversion, $1200 seems about right. I mean, that's the price in Canada and I'm 4hrs from the states.

Normal since you have new bushings. It just proved to you how soft a car gets over time.

It really feels a bit heavier. I got used to it within a week.

It's much heavier even without a bushing swap. I didn't want extra NVH and it's very noticeable.. similar to going from stock alignment to additional caster (~6.5 to ~8 deg).

Wouldn't let that sway anyone from doing it.. my petite 5'3" wife can drive it no problem and it's got spacers, caster plates, and the 15 rack. the front end doesn't feel anything like the original car.
