550 Lowering Springs install cost?

What are you guys paying for install? I'm in MD/DC/VA and just got quoted 1500 which included alignment.

I don't think you should pay more than 500 including alignment

Springs + labor shouldn't exceed $1000

I had to go back and check, and you're correct. It was more than I said, my bad. Regardless, RG is the very best. Thank you for all you do.

Don't pay the amount they quoted you, it's outrageous.

Us folks in SoCal are spoiled by having r33_RGSport nearby.

Just mean you chose a naturally expensive shop. So find another shop that doesn't do race car set ups. Their prices are going to be more expensive to cover overhead costs of their specialized tools and service techs and rep. If you can go anywhere in Maryland it'll be much cheaper.

Maybe shop around and tell them if they give you a great deal you'll bring your friends. I've been meaning to do this and I'm in the DMV too.

the cheapest so far is 1125 the highest is 1700, from speaking to others in the area they are getting the exact same quotes. Going to try a couple more then ill just sell the springs here. The car handles amazingly I dont need to invest this much into looks. Id rather put this toward wheels which i need.

The least expensive quote I have gotten has been $1000 including alignment. This was actually from the tech I've been going to at the dealer for years. He said the normal price on the job is ~$1500 but he would take care of me for being a good customer. My debate is if I should do it - 15 months left on the lease but I may buy it out at the end.
