Fair price?
Is $200 a lot for spring install and alignment?

(Edit to add: Is it ok to install springs (Eibach Pro) and NOT get the alignment right away?)

Thats ballpark for springs and alignment.

I'm paying $160 for springs, struts, and alignment (but I'm friends with the head tech). You want to do the alignment at the same time. Other wise your talking possible camber and drift issues, do it don't be cheap. thumbsup

I heard ur sopose to let the sprigns settle for 2 weeks then aligmnet. The only shop around here was gonna charge 225 for install of springs only. Everyone else dosnt do. Im conviced that me and my dad can do them w/a spring compressor. I talked to a guy at Advance Auto and he said it was easy.

And if that fails my friends dad can install for $80.

with a spring compressor you should be able to do it yourself. $200 is not bad for springs + alignment...

- definitely get alignment done at the same time as drop

wow, i think $200 is kinda high, I paid $80 at a local speed shop, and the alignment was $110 for life time alignment at discount tire centers.

200 seems a bit too much. I know a few shops around here that will do spring installs for $65, and alignments done from $60-80. So i think $130-150 seems reasonable.

I pay 250 euro (about 280 usd) for installing my KYG AGX and Eibach Pro, no alignment yet, I'll get it done when my springs settle
