Hi all,



I've done the search and can't find all the information I'm looking for so I figured I'd make up a post. ^_^

Anyway... I recently bought an s4 gxl. PS has been "de-powered" and I was wanting to swap to a manual rack but I have a few questions about it.



Is there a write up already where someone's done it? Kind of like a "how to" type of thing? If not then it's probably too easy for that and I just need to know if it's a direct bolt on or what has to be done to it before installation. I've read that the manual bushing were smaller but that's all I've seen in regards to it.





Also, is there a vendor that sells the racks? Used/New/Rebuilt... doesn't matter just need to find one.





Thanks in advance,

******

Thanks for the quick reply! Do you happen to know vendors that sell it? Or would I have better luck searching junkyards and what-not?



Also what's the time estimate on the job? Never done this one before... aka I'm a noob
