Spring install Prices

Shit son..I bought tein s techs on the internet..Whats the usuall price to get these installed?Im getting quotes of 150-200$ Thats more than the springs..is this right?..I have people at school that can install springs..(have done it before)But I would have to take it to the shop to compress the springs anyways right?Then theyre gonna charge up the ass for that?Sorry this just seems excessive..Are these prices right?

^^ like he said go rent a spring compressor if you know people that can do it, and have experience. if im not mistaken, Autozones deal is rent the spring compressor for $50, but get it back in full when you return it. So if your friends can do it, add it up. FREE INSTALL!

Good luck!

Mario

well regardless of professional install or ur friends..U hAVE to get an alignment when the springs go in.. So if your trying to save money, let ur friend do it and take it in for alignment.

Good luck with it!

I agree with thefrush.

Just make sure to have a friend around to help for an extra pair of hands and you can rent a McPherson spring compressor from autozone for about $39 and you get a FULL refund when you return it, regardless if it's bent or broke.
