Had the speed shop install them -- 4 hours. They are a pain to put in, especially the front two. Haven't raced yet, so I can't say how effective they are, but the rear end is definitely stiffer and there is some more noise/vibration on the ride.

I have to agree with Jeff..

I installed mine a couple of weeks ago with the help of a mechanic friend and a lift. Doing the MM Poly IRS Bushing and the MM Rear Poly upper and lower Control arm bushing took about 6 hours (also did a oil change and the steeda sway bar in that time frame).

People I know get them installed anywhere from $250-400.

It made a HUGE difference to me (i think the combo irs and control arm bushing work well). The car launches SOOOO much better. The car accelerates on the highway with a downshit dump SOOO much better. The turn are ALOT more stable, its like you know what the back of the car is doing, and I can barely get a squeel out of tire taking corners alot faster than I used to..

Its a labor intensive install but WELL worth it.

The down side, is that the car will be stiffer and more abrupt. You will also hear your suspension (noisier). But that stuff isn't bothersome enough to phase me.
