Thanks, great information! And it looks like the guy who started that company to sell the kits is right here where I live in Raleigh. Seems like a simple enough job (although time intensive), trouble is that the car is my daughter's and is only here at my place a couple times a year (away at college). If she can't live with it the way it is until the next visit, she'll have to pay big $$ to get it fixed.
