If you go to places like Larkspeed, I guess the price is "+Postage" ...

If you want them fitted for you, then a specialist like ABP or TDi or whoever (not a Honda dealer !), will give you a very good price for supply and install ...

I bought mine from Larkspeed, £10 postage, which was still the cheapest I could find.
If your any good with spanners, you could fit em yourself (I did my FN2). There's a guide in the wiki section. It's quite straight forward to do, as long as you can undo the anti roll bar / drop links.

I got mine from Larkspeed and less than 24 hours for delivery. if like me you dont like waiting round and you want to do it yourself then i would choose this option. if you want a garage to do it for you then ABP would be my second choice. they also have their own version of the Eibachs which are slightly lower.

Hi boothy had the -30m ABP eibachs fitted and full Frs done, can't say enough about this set up or the service from abp.

Worth a phone all.

And therein "lies the rub" ! ...

In 2009 (car 2 years old), it needed a four foot wrench to undo the anti roll bar \ drop links - about a month ago (car 4 years old), I had the 'drop links' changed, and it need a cutting torch to remove the bolts !!! ...

I undid the droplinks of my 2007 FN2 in September 2011, using only basic tools. Maybe your environment / weather conditions had a negative impact (or maybe I was just lucky lol)

i too was concerned about getting the droplinks off and had a cutter ready but they undid quite easily! i think maybe they had been changed not long before i got the car. i still had to replace them.

You were lucky. i used a hex tool and spanner but they still rounded off.

In the end (and in the dark) i had to cut the bottom bolts off both.

thankfully the top ones were ok.

Well, that's two that went fine and two that needed cutting - and yes, the horrible weather over here, this last few years, must have been a contributory factor for mine ...

@ [boothy] - FRS isn't just for 'twisty roads' - it'll also make motorway driving better, as the car will just be "point and shoot" (much less steering 'wandering') ...
