    Are you going for a Hunter setup check dude? I had mine done last week, where they check the camber, tracking, alignment, toe-in, every single measurement you can think of, using lasers. You also get a printout of the before and after giving all the measurements and tolerances...

    Well worth the 80 quid and car feels much better now as mine was well out in lots of areas...

    It's easy enough mate - I changed mine a few weeks ago. There's 4 torx screws at the base of the unit, and a ball joint at the bottom which you clip out. Take off the right-hand coupling with the spring on it and out it all comes. The trickiest bit is swapping the gaitors over as the Vewctra one needs a bit of modding to fit properly....
