Default Suspension install- recommended shop?

Thinking about popping for the STi/SPT suspension on my WRX. I know, Subaru parts are expensive, but I've done the tuner mix and match thing before with mixed results and I just want a good, non-adjustable suspension that I know will not have any really bad habits. My dealer says they will not install the "offroad/no warranty" parts (even though they are happy to sell them to me-- stupid). Who in the Denver area is an expert, trustworthy, and reasonable installer?

This will be the whole shebang: struts, springs, control arms, front sway, all the bushing, Sti top mounts.

Thanks

Superg

Seth at Dellenbach in Ft Collins did a superb job for me yesterday installing Cusco front sway bar and front camber adj plates (and dialing the plates in on the alignment machine. I'll be using him when my Cobb struts/springs get here.

If you have the time, do it yourself. You'll save all kinds of money and learn a few things about your car!!

OldRacer, you should get in touch with the rest of us in Ft. Collins. We help each other work on our cars (again if you have time).

Personally, I'd rather save the labor rates and spend a little more time with my car.

Thumbs up

Strepto;
I hear you, and I would, indeed, like to hook up. Totally agree on both $$ savings, and the learning factor.
In this case, as is often my problem, time was a major factor; by the time I saw I was getting a nice income tax refund, and got some stuff ordered from Cobb, first auto-x of the season was only a few days away. Then, w/ the need for alignment work after installing the plates, and wanting to be able play with things on the rack (checking how much toe out I get at various camber settings-in terms of how many turns of the tie rod end, and what the scale on the plates corresponds to in terms of actual camber), doing it at the shop was what fit the need.
Yeah, it cost a bit, but being able to get under w/ Seth as we worked thru the alignment stuff did provide the learning factor I needed.

Couple of times when I've seen posts about a work/install session, I thought about jumping in. I will in the future. With 2 kids, and an 8-5 (or more sometimes), time is often the problem.
So, looking forward to getting together.
Thanks,

Len

If you do it make sure you get all the parts put back in.


It makes noises if you don't.
