I used the McDonald Bros tubs in my car, couldn't have been an any better fit, really happy with them. I have also used a set of their HQ tubs, same fit.

 

They freight them as a flat pack, you assemble them yourself which is quite easy, can't think of a reason not to use them !

Ray McDonald has said $2000 for tubs, top and bottom arms, viking coil overs and all mounts to suit.

Never brought tubs, but I have delt with cronics several times with no issues over the years. Not the cheapest but being local any issues can be sorted face to face without the merry go round phone/emails.
