if you did the mods in your profile then you can install the springs yourself. all you would need is a spring compressor for any auto store (rental is around $6 per day). there are many guides in every forum to assist you. so, install is basically free and you learn a little more about your car. the job can take about 2-4 hours depending on your tools and know-how.

$100-$150 for springs and $250-$300 for fully adjustable coilovers around here. Usually around the $150 mark.

I called a shop around here about my Hotchkis springs, and they said $100. So i would say 100-150 range.

In florida i know they rent tools out for free at most auto stores, you just need a deposit. And, I'm not trying to not be safe about a situation but I rented the spring compressor and didnt even need to use it to be honest. My spings when the car was jacked up had no tension in them. but as a precautionary you may wanna use them.

why don't you get some help and do it yourself? i did it myself and it wasn't bad. you just need to get all the right equipment before starting though. I spent most of my time trying to get the right equipment.

If you going to do it yourself remember to buy a breaker bar, you'll need it for the rear strut nut.


Life is like a dream...Hopefully when you wake up it isn't like mine.
