The cabs were also oem from tischer and they were $150 shipped.
belts are only 20 something dollars each non oem. which would total like 150 for everything.

by CABs you mean the bushings only or the whole control arm? bmaparts.com does free shipping. there is also a new sponsor on here that has good prices as well. I believe both the new sponsor and bmaparts are local and include free shipping on orders over $50.

Just the cabs, not the whole control arm. However I think tischer has a whole set of zhp control arms with cabs for like $500.

I will have to check out the new sponsor tomorrow when I am not on my phone...

hmmm is this the kit your talking about at modbargins?
http://www.modbargains.com/_e/Power_...25_328_330.htm

That is for increased power. What you really want to replace is the tensioners which are not included.

If you only replace tensioners and belts i beleive the price would be closer to $100.

Yeah, I just looked at the kit because someone here said to check it out, but it doesn't really have everything I am looking for

im pretty sure you could get some made for less. there are a few adapter specific sponsors on stanceworks.

hmm real oem isnt much help as to which you need. best thing would be to go to the dealer get the part numbers then order elsewhere. Or we can check whats on your car but complicate things further i do believe they suggest going from mechanical tensioner to hydrolic. so what is in your car might not be whats best for it.

either way I would estimate the total price for tensionors and belts at around $150. hopefully less. and CAB alone are $80 or $150 a side Control arms alone meyle HD.

errr correction. both control arms and bushing kit is $322

Meh. They have a few cool styles, but nothing that really stands out. My favorite UK-based wheel company is still Compomotive.

I usually see them on E9Xs, but they look alright on E46s, too.
