 I got the only the suspension bushings and tie rod ends,
not the sub-frame or engine/tranny mounts, as they appeared
to be just fine. After going over the process and Scott's
site, and being jammed up against Xmas and business
pressures, I took it to a well trusted front-end shop, and
gave them about $460 for the 8 hours it took. Keep in mind
that when the bushing are replaced you will need a front-end
re-alignment regardless. 

I carefully went over a print-out from Scott's site with the
shop so they understood the issues associated with proper
torques, etc. Also, I am here in Monterey, CA where the
rubber deterioration issues are probably minimal. The
improvement was significant - the car handles like new.
