i'm having a hard time understanding this. from the website first posted in the general section the bushings for front and rear control arms only were $165.54 with free shipping on anything over $119.

in this group buy i'm only going to save $8 from $209 which puts me at $201, and this is a discount? does not compute

I don't understand your question. Maybe you forgot to put the diff bushings into your calculations.

Add up the individual prices at http://www.energysuspensionparts.com....asp?cat=10244 and it comes out to $260. You can buy the kit there for $238, or here for $209. If you ONLY want f&r control arm bushings, it'll cost you $166 at that website, or as I suggested, call lightning, tell them you're from mt.net and see what he can do for you.

By all means. That's info I got directly from ES. But as I have noted earlier, ES customer service blows donkey *****.

I suggest we should name Chris "Official Group Buy Coordinator" of this site. Your effort and skills have been way beyond any reasonable expectation.

Well done man. You should've charged us a fee for that!

Many thanks,

Rafa

Just ordered the kit! Thanks for setting this up!

I have installed this kit on my Integra, and the difference is night and day. Road feel is much more noticable, but well worth it in terms of handling and performance.

Shawn, I want a set too. How about I have it shipped to your address so we can both save on shipping?

I can't see the flickr link (stupid Navy blocks photo sites) that Chris posted so I don't know the coupon code.

I'm going to call Lightning and see what they can do, but they may need your permission for shipping.
