How much?

I plan on getting an Eibach Sportline Suspension (springs,struts) and I saw the recent writeup of how to do the front struts/springs and also the rear springs.

I wanted to know if anyone has done the rear struts(not just springs),and how hard it was.

Also how much would it be, if any of you got it done professionaly to get it installed? Ex. At a shop.

I love Foci :D

if you can turn a wrench you can do it. it pretty simple.the only problem i had was the bolt holding the shock in the bottom had a ber had i had to file it to make it go back in. also i had a impact hammer and it was still tuff. other than that simple. oh BTW the nut on the top of the shock, you need to hold the flat part of the shock with visr grips and use a open ended 13mm wernch to get the bolt off. it will make better sence when you see it.

THe shocks are cake the lower control arm bolt for myself was rough just use PB blast for a couple days before. 15mm on the bottom if you can get a 15mm in 1/2 " drive you can keep from busting up sockets if they are frozen up. If they are gind the welds on the nut and pullout the front. try loosening the bottom back bolt if it breaks loose (both sides) you will do fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah listen to these guys because a shop will charge you from 300 bucks up to 600 at a dealership. I called around when I bought my lowering kit. I installed it myself with a buddy and it was a breeze plus a good learning experience!
