For shocks/springs I have been quoted $85/$75 a corner at Big-O tires to $45/$40 a corner at my local tuner shop.

I'm pulling out my Eibach Pro's and having TEIN SS's installed this week for $1,156 total.

Good Luck!

EXACT in Milpitas (408)416-0061 ask for Sandy or John, say Brad sent you. John has done excellent work on my car and at a fair price.

I just put down $500 for the TEIN's an hour ago.

My Dad has a place in Florida, I love it there...and the shop prices!

I live in the heart of "Silicon Valley" where everything is expensive...a 1000 sq.ft. condo goes for $800,000...go figure....

$120 for springs and camber???? And I thought I got a nice quote of $150 for just the springs.

Is the camber kit hard to install? Me and my friends were able to do springs and the oem lip kit fairly easy so do you think we would be able to handle this?

How hard is it to install the springs, if you have all the right tools (compressor)?

i can do it, but i'm located in blacksburg, Virginia(I go to school at VT). and i don't have any tools down here, all the tools i have is at home.

So if ur in the area, i'll be glad to do it for you. Just buy me some food and we'll call it even.

I'm not sure how to do camber or sway, so u may have to get someone else to do that for you. I mean, i can probably figure camber out, but sway bar may need an air tool, i'm not too sure.

Assassin,

Yes, if you buy the parts from them their install price is really good, which, when I added in tax, shipping and hassles, turned out to be a great deal.

As a matter of fact my car is there right now having the TEIN SS's put on.

Ok i cost me $275 for H&R springs which im thinking about changing out so if anyone is intersted in buying them sent me a PM, but i bought the springs from Les Swhab and install and they got me good, cost me 500$ for install and springs. $120 is really good, but make sure you get it done from someone that knows what they are doing .

-Anyone know someone in Nor Cal, that can install a sprotline Eibach kit and a Chamber kit, let me know Thanks.

I have a contact at a dealership... service manager had his lead tech install my groundcontrols, SPC rear camber, and do an all wheel alignment for $140. Plus the guy got paid his usual wage at the same time... good deal for him and me. I'd hook you up with the contact but I doubt your in CO. I'd say $120 is good, but you should get an alignment if you want it to be setup correctly, so find out how much you will need to spend on that too. Also take into account the reputation/experience of whoever is doing it. Last thing you want is to save money and have expensive problems later because it was done halfasssed.

Time vs. Money, but Money vs. Location for other Like myself....Average install around here is about $200-$230 for just springs.

Heck getting quotes around by me they wanted $275 - $450 for the springs to be install. I think they just don't want to deal with it. If I looked at there hourly rate it was that x4, so they are saying an hour per corner. I could have done it all myself but time I just do not have, and didn't have a spring compressor. You guys are all extremely lucky. Midwest sux for prices not many speed shop around and to go to a dealer is crazy unless you know someone. I ended up paying $325 to get my H&R springs removed from stock shocks install them on the new Koni's, brake rotors & pads all the way around, sway bar install and front mess grill install seeing as it was at the shop.
