I have a MY00 RS2.5 & live in Ottawa. I am looking for recommendations on shops to install anti sway bar (18mm SPD)and springs (SPD Eibach Pro-kit) , plus do a good alignment.

The sway bar is pretty easy... It takes about 15minutes to make the change... For the springs, that's a bit more time....

If that's a bit too far, call the local dealers (Gatineau, Ogilvie or Westboro)....

I bought my car at Subaru Gatineau, they're very good. However I don't think they're equipped to do alignment on site.

I bought the car at Westboro Motors, they said they would rather not install someone else's aftermarket parts.

Any experience with Robson?

Dont go to Robson!!! They're expensive!

I think they charge $70 per hour.... call them and find out......

I highly recommend Subaru Lachute... I had my KYB/AGX struts, sway bar (20mm), and whiteline end links installed there.....

Thanks all!! I will for sure give Lachute a try. At worst, it looks like a day off work and a nice drive.

Fengshui - I know just enough to suspect your post contains important information, but not enough so that I understand it. Pls. help!
