    The word “budget” should not even come in to play with these 4V engines!

    Easiest way is to put the control arms, sway bar, and pumpkin in the IRS cradle and then install that without the half-shafts and knuckles since it saves over 100# and makes it much easier to handle....

    You aren't going to go wrong with the Prothane poly set sold by Maximum Motorsports (and probably others) - they are rock solid. Have had all the Prothane bushings in my IRS for 7+ years and all...
