Pick up some tools and stop being lazy. It takes no time or skill at all. You will just get ripped for something you could have done yourself.

You're 19..what the hell do you do with your time?

Anyways, you can take it to Centreline Suspension in Thomastown. They do a great job and know their stuff. Not sure what they will charge, but you get what you pay for. Only had to take it back once because the a*** was sitting too low.

I did front shocks in the AU today, 2hours all up. Ok, so I know what I am doing, but download a manual, read up on it, your gonna need a few tools like spring compressors, a decent 1/2" socket set some multi grips and your set.

First time I did suspension it took a few hour and a few beers afterwards, was very rewarding to undertake and complete a mechanical task, it was one of my first modifications car wise, did go-kart stuff and what not before though.

Yeah I tackled the suspension in the NF at Easter, rears are piss easy, the fronts I had not dealt with struts before but managed with help, but if time is an enemy and you have the cash...... shame your not in Sydney Dave and I wouldn't charge too much :twisted:

spring compressors are like $60 from supercheap, plus you then have a tool you can use over and over again. my spring compressors have been given a workout over the years, money well spent.
