A good product at a good price, but fitting them may take some time. The workshop manual is a must for this job. The rears are relatively simple and straightforward. The fronts are more problematic. The shock absorbers will not come out unless you separate the upper ball joint. Despite what the manual says (all doom and gloom) I used a Draper ball joint separator (stock number 13914 - refer to my comments under the "ball joint section). It is possible to damage the rubbers, again refer to my comments on those. This separator is a must, there is simply no room to swing a heavy hammer!
I also purchased a set of Draper spring compressors (part number N145) which made the strip down easy.
Assuming all goes to plan allow the best part of a day to do this job yourself, especially if like me, you have to kneel and crawl in a cramped garage. Also budget £30 + for the special tools - still works out cheaper than a garage and you can keep the tools for another day. Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
