Try A-Spec Tuning... www.a-spectuning.com . They don't have a ton of experience yet, but they know their stuff. Sean and I have had lengthy discussions about suspension setup. They mainly work on high-end RX7's, so the quality of their work is excellent.

i called them and they said they will install the coilovers for $450!!!!! i'm like what?!!!!!!!! i've heard good things from people on this site but i'm not going to pay$450 for them to install my teins.

actually i didn't buy them yet but they a-spec said they can get them for $1699. i'm still going to ask around to see if i can get them cheaper.

any other places that you guys know of? don't shops usually charge around $150?

you could do it yourself and then get the car aligned by someone else. you'd save a lot of $$$ that way

Thanks for the support 8, no need to be upset Ed, I believe Frank told you we could work something out since you would buy them from us. I was trying to get him to give me the phone but you hung up so quickly it didn't happen.

I would be suprised if you could find someone to do the install for $150.00,
he quoted you for 6 hrs labor $75hr. $150 would be $25.hr Call on Monday if your interested and we'll see what agreement we can come to, as I believe there was a misunderstanding,ask for me.

Thanks,Sean

hey sean i'm not upset or anything like that. i was just surprised at the price for installation. in the past i had a set of coilovers installed in my 95 maxima for $150 at driver's image. they charged $50/hr so that was what i was looking at. well i'm still deciding if i'm actually going to get these tein's so hope there is no beef between us.
