Default Who installs Koni inserts?

Has anyone had Koni inserts installed in the Tri-State area? If you could, please recommend a place for the installation. I have an '02 WRX. I'd prefer a place in Long Island but I'm willing to be flexible.

Thanks.

I know AZP does them (have the on the legacy and we have a set taken off a RS for sale). It takes a LOT longer than a normal spring/strut install becasue we have to chop apart the existing struts but they are worth the hassle of the installation.

^exactly

a bench vise helps
an electric drill and a variety of bits
(BE SURE TO WEAR EYE PROTECTION - pressurized struts will sling metal drill shavings at you)
a 2"+ pipe cutter works on the rears
had to use a hack saw on the fronts (a regular and the blade holder style)
a pan for strut fluid
tape measure/measuring device

If you were close, I'd offer a hand. me and saab90089 did mine.

my vote goes to AZP... they're closest to you(that i know of), all their cars are significantly modded, and they use them for what hte parts were designed for!

i would say Precision.. but i just dont personally know of anyone who's gone there for suspension.

my recommendation: have spare strut bodies.. in case you screw it up(measure twice, cut once)
