Lowering Springs INSTALL Question...
Just got my Eibach Sportlines in the mail over the weekend, and I was wondering how much I should expect to pay to have them installed at a local tire/wheel shop. The reason I'm asking now is because I'm going to call around for quotes tomorrow, and wanna know how much I should expect to pay.


On another note, if the price is too high, I might just wanna bite the bullet and do the install myself. I saw that someone on this site did a write-up on the install, and even provided pictures, but it was not added to the install section, and is lost in the forum somewhere? Anyone help me find it?

There appear to be no useful write ups in the install section, and the guy who did the write-up that I'm looking for said he didn't even use a spring compressor I believe. I could be mistaken, because I think you need one to get the springs off the strut assembly, but there could be another way I guess.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Oh, and was I supposed to receive 2 bump stops with the kit for the front?

Thanks.

That really needs to be added to the install section.

I'm gonna do it myself now. Looks easy enough, and shouldn't cost me a thing.

Thanks for the pics, they were a big help.


As for the rear, how much shit do I have to rip out inside of the car to gain access to the bolts holding the struts in?
