some one told me that you should fit only the rear first, drive the car for a few days then put the front on and see does it make much difference. Is the car any bouncier over bumps etc? Did you loose any ride comfort?

I was only going to fit the back and see how that went but said while I had the car on the lift I might aswell fit both.
No difference to ride comfort that I can tell but the car is hard anyway so didnt notice any difference. Still the same over bumps too. I'm well happy with them

They are totally wrong. The yellow ones are much cheaper and stiff than blue ones

Hey Ken

There was talk before on the site about doing a group buy on ARB's what sort of price could you do us say 10 sets for if we were to get 10 members to buy them

Actually for our prices, you have saved over 30% OFF from retail and another 10% to 20% OFF from currency rate (if you paid in USD) already. Also, USD is going very weak in these months and we have lost a lot of money on exchange rate since we pay in JPY (Japanese dollar) for our TRD order to TRD Japan (They only accept YEN). Anyhow, if you guys can pay in YEN, then I think I can give you more discount since I wont lose money on exchange rate.

Thanks,

Ken
