Looking for shop to do a Suspension install/alignment

So I just picked up a set of used KW V1's and i'm looking to get them installed. I have a few good shops I go to but theres a few reasons why i'm not going for this install. The main shop i've been using for mods and they're great is ACI Dynamix. The only problem with them is they are pretty far and they don't do alignment, alignment being the main issue. The other shop I have gone to is AfterFX. I'm waiting to hear back from them since i'm almost positive they do alignment but their prices are not cheap ($150/hr)... So basically I was wondering if anyone knew of any reputable shops within 30 minutes of Greenwich preferably that can install the coilovers and do an alignment without charging an arm and a leg.

I also just left a message at "The Shop" in Norwalk since I have a few friends who go there so i'm waiting to hear back from them on if they do alignments and how much the install would be. I'm ideally looking to spend less than $400 for install and alignment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's a good suggestion. I just looked at their website though and it looks like it's $200 for just the alignment so i'd imagine a coilover install would be pretty expensive...

yeah, $200 sounds pricy. have you considered asking a dealer to do the alignment? you have to have someone adjust your headlights too, right? is that part of the coilover install?

have a buddy help you .. (you can "technically" do it yourself) install them yourself and then take it somewhere to get aligned. There are some great DIY's on this forum.

RCT can help you with KW1 install and alignment for around your price. They're located in College Point, Queens. They did both for me as well.

They're used so I don't think I have to let them settle, right?

Also thanks for all the suggestions everyone but I just found out ACI Dynamix can do it and they're going to do it for my price so i'm just going to have them do it. I am looking for a shop to do walnut blasting without paying the ridiculous above $500 prices...?
