Spring install cost...

Sorry for beating on a dead topic guys, but as you can see, I'm in southern California 15-30 minutes from LA and i can't seem to find a place to install my springs for cheap... I called my local toyota dealership and they wanted 750 for labor, so i laughed at them and hung up, and then i called carson toyota and they wanted $455 -.- that's REALLY unreasonable... i'm lookin for something like $50-75

Can anyone help me? confused

nope...but this is hard to beat. i suggest you call them...again i haven't tried them out because i haven't gotten my springs yet. i'm hoping to get some used (for 120) then get them installed for 40...but most likely i'll get them new... thumbsup rice

Hey ct, thnx for the hook up, for anyone whose interested, the guy i spoke to gave me a quote of $50 on the installs...

Does anyone know if they do quality install? or ever heard of them?

Anyways, the guy i talked to seemed pretty cool. I think i'm gonna search around for another week or two and then if no one can beat the price, i'll go to autohaus. Thanks agen for the hook up ct thumbsup

Oh yeah, it's in the city of industry... about 30-40 minute drive for me... any idea on how long they take with the install?

$50 dollars is pretty good. The procedure is pretty simple, if i had the right tools, i'd do it myself.

You should ask if you'll be allowed to watch.

no prob thumbsup rice
though i've been meaning to get some springs i haven't yet (just want to see a celi with 15s with the TRD springs..then i can fully commit). yeah i've been calling around and install average is around 2-2.5 hours...one has quoted me for 1.5 hours but their install was 110...not bad...but 40-50 bucks sounds beter thumbsup

I believe rice powered's dealer (a while back also wanted $750) which is cmon... RIDICULOUS.

$750??? That's an LSD right there, that's a new clutch, that's so many other possibilities... I just laughed at them and hung up. Another dealer (who hotchkis delt springs to) wanted something like $350. Get real people. thumbsdown
