The cost was:
springs $155 pair *2
fitting $180
wheel alignment $40
so all up it was $495 including GST.

i wasn't going to do it for awhile yet i just went in their to get a price but when she said it could be done their and then i couldn't wait. Just drove in and waited an hour and half payed the money and drove off with smile from ear to ear, but yeah it hands great as well!

Next thing on your list should be swaybars.
THEN you will experience handling!

Bah, dont stress about the wheels. I'd be doing the sawybars first. Even with 15s the handling with big swaybars is great.

Wheels can come at a later date.

(actually, i just realised, are you aiming for looks or handling? if you want looks, yeah wheels are good)

Twirqurk the springs cost $155 for a pair but the labour was the killer but they did my first car and it was great . I dont care if i have too pay abit more aslong as they do a good job. I like how you can go to all these different places and their such a big difference labour prices, bigger places bigger overheads..
