just got my eibach pro springs and was told $300 for replacement and alignment. Is this a good price or should I shop around? it is a pretty reputable shop. Will see if I can get an oil change thrown in but it seemed a little high to me since the rear springs just pull out in 30 min or less right?....
What did you pay and how long did it take??

thats pretty high man I'd shop around...I had a friend do it at his shop for free but it should be closer to 200 mabey less

Rear springs are real easy, as far as I know. Just sticks a little, right?

called ford dealers...they say they can't do lowering springs????? WTF....ne who, still waiting for prices...ne one had theirs installed lately or remember what they paid....$300 just fer springs seems lil spendy.

Wow.. You are geting ripped off.
I am having the Eibach Pro Kit (Springs AND Damps) installed for 175.00
I haven't heard of ANY dealerships that will install aftermarket parts on their products....

Family Ford in Marietta Ohio has done ALL my work except for the exhaust. they did my UDP's and everything. Only charged me the shop rate of 65$ an hour.

All depends where you go. I would only charge $150. Thats what catfishf1 paid and i also fabricated new rear swaybar mounts for him too.

Wow, $300? That seems alittle high to me. Have you though of doing it yourself? i did mine in a day, you just need spring compressors for the front, or take the whole front shock, spring assembly to the shop and get them to put it together. Im sure that would save money.

Ford Dealerships around here just laugh at me when I ask if they install stuff like this.
02-16-2006, 04:02 PM
I don't see why they wouldn't they'll just charge you labor up the ass. like 180-250 an hour.

well for install and alliment it's not to bad i mean CrazyMatt u are having ur done at massive i bet and yeah 175 for install but not for install and alliment i am pay 125 for install and another 100 for allenment 300 isn't bad as long as that include's tax and all

thanks guys....i think maybe they thought I have a sedan, which would take a little longer to do, but $300 is still a little high....I'll try and talk him down, maybe get him to throw in an oil change.

i did mine on my own. the only thing i didn't want to attempt was the fronts. i took the whole shock out and took it to a shop, they charged me $35 per to change the spring out. i think that's pretty good considering you could kill yourself with the force the front springs have on them.
