This kit is OK for the price.
For the most part this kit works fine. Shipping was good, and the parts arrived in good condition. There were no included torque specs, which I think is a big deal. But the biggest problem is that the bracket on the strut for the brake hose is to small. You have to grind or drill out the bracket to fit the hose in. It is a good price, but there are definitely some short comings with the kit.
