hey guys, if i can get myself some springs at wholesale price and take them along with my car to a suspension joint, wat kind of a price am I looking at to get them installed? would 150 - 200 be about right? bit more, bit less??

also if i got my shockies done at the same time the price wouldnt change would it? the shocks would already be out??

cheers

What about shocks, what have you guys done with them?

Also, wouldn't it cost the same when recplacimg shocks and springs seeing it all comes out together anyway?

50 for labour?? all up??
so technically i can take my springs are can in and itll cost me $50? sounds a little cheap lol
wat springs did u get? sound a bit exy so maybe part of the labour was included with the spring price??

and smackdown, i was probably going to go king lows and keep my shocks, providing they are in reasonable condition, ive heard ride handing and comfort are affected too much if u only go lows.. anyone care to input?? 8-)

also, getting lowered shocks is gonna give me a more comfortable ride, but do they also make any difference to the ride height?? looking at a whole bunch off pics with king s/lows, vs king s/lows with lowered shocks, the ones with the shocks seem a bit lower, is this rite?

well, if i could be f**k digging mine up id tell you the price.. but...

from memory.... mine was about 170 labor? pretty expensive, then they charged 70 for a full alignment.. so yeh..

im running superlows with standard shocks..

long story short, i gave him an indication of right height, said i didnt want super low springs.. cause i didnt want new shocks. pick the car up, geez thats low. get home, check the part numbers.. mmhuh, superlows! i queried it when i saw it, about ride height and if i would need new shocks for it he said nah nah its fine... he was a ford man too, and an ED xr6 out the front that was very clean

150 i s a pretty average price up here, so obviously 50 for labour was cheap.

Oh well thats what the invoice said.
