    a long list....

    the following are guide prices for the bits, and labour times are an educated guess based on experience..

    the front dampers would be in the order of 100 quid the pair, and the springs would be the same price to buy.. fitting both in a professional enviroment would take about 1.5hrs to swap over the strut and spring onto your car.

    wheel bearings are avaliable on ebay for under the magic 100, but they will be about 140 from VX.. fitting isn't a big job but allow about an hour a side to do.. and use plenty of penetrating oil..

    the biggy is the rack..as of yet i haven't come across anyone who sells recon racks, so new is the only option..and they're the thick end of 400 quid..fitting is a swine as you have to droop the back of the engine subframe to get them in and out.. this means disturbing some rather expensive stretch bolts to release the tail of the subframe..labour is about 3 hours to do..so don't expect much change out of 800 quid on it..
