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....

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.
