    You need to get both 8th/7th and 6th gen and have them custom welded...

    try and go to some small welding place as they tend to not charge that much or a local muffler shop and they can have it done for under $20 or so...

    i got mines done here by the same guy ive been getting my welds done for the past 5 years and thats what he charged me.

    I'm about to do the conversion myself, just waiting for the part on the mail, ill prob do a quick write up since i haven't seen one on the internet for the 7th/8th gen

    I don't think there is any welding involved for the 7th gen.... I'm pretty sure there's a conversion from some car that doesn't require welding (unless it's different on the 7th and 8th gen).

    OP... just because the posts or information was from 2008 doesn't mean it's not relevant! It's not like anything has changed since then lol.

    That's what I'm asking... are the arms different on the 7th and 8th gen. Cause it's all bolton for the 7th gen (which is what the OP is talking about).

    oh, I just reread what you wrote... different from the 7th and 8th gens... oh lol. IDK, I never did it. But I do know it is possible to do without welding.

    I'm not sure, but I know that there is a conversion you can buy off certain cars that just bolts right up. What if you tried using the 8th gen arms on there?

    Added: Jul 6, 2012 at 9:34 PM
