Quick Spring Question

How much do regular shops charge to get lowering springs installed. Im about to order the Ebiach Porline (1.1 drop) and I need to know. I heard some people say you can install them yourself except the back ones were kinda tuff. Then i heard some people say you need a shop cause you need a spring compressor. So whats the deal? O and is 195 for spings a good deal?

--side note where can i find some clear coners for a good deal (no ebay)

you do need a spring compressor... you can rent it at pep boys for like 5 bucks or buy one for like 15...

do it yourself if you're mechanically inclined or have worked on suspension before...

its pretty easy, you just have to do it 4 times and thats what takes the time...

after the drop, you will need an alignment though.

Yes it is very easy to do. But be sure to do it safely with jack stands under the car.

You will need a spring compressor! Let your springs settle for like 2 weeks before the alignment though. Use jack stands on the car and be very carful with the sring compressor!
