If an in-the-box kit isn't necessary, ( you order the parts yourself )
BIRA http://www.bira.org/ has an edge in price over equivalents from
the BigBrake sellers.  You can get the same setup if you have S4 struts
but your current UFO status can be limiting.  BIRA is finishing up a
compatible design for UFO replacement.

Check 'em out, I'm running System 6 and will be writing up my results
to post on the BIRA site; Greg Amy ( father of BIRA ) has put the same
system on his 2000 neu-S4.  I think the UFO rig will be System 1 and
it usually fits under most 16" wheels.

An interesting note, since BIRA has gained some notice, the prices of
the kit sellers have dived....hmmmm, scary pigs.

Anyone who cannot cope with Mathematics is not fully human. At
best (he) is a tolerable sub-human who has learned to wear shoes,
bathe, and not make messes in the house.
