both good - depends on which side of the city you are on. I found RMP better, only because they can do it fairly quickly vs. the longer waits at speedstar.

I got mine done this past summer at RMP. Very happy with their service! So far I've got them to install my brakes, coilovers, and next my LSD which seems to be taking forever to come in!

My cousin got an oil change from them and told me about the promo. I called them and they said it'd be $150 for installation .. but $60 +tax for alignment. I'm debating too now.. I was told it's better to get them installed in April...

Has anyone here got their coils installed during March??

60+tax for alignment? Thats usually the price for front wheels only.

If you want the work done correctly, fast, and by an experience mechanic then RMP is the place.

Im sure there are other shops around but i mainly dealt with RMP

I've heard good things about RMP too. Did you get your coils installed by them?

nope got mine installed in may. i would say only get them installed now if you are getting a much better price. if you're only going to save $50 or so, I would wait till maybe beginning of april. wait till all chances of heavy snow fall are gone. Hard to get in and out of your drive way when you're lowered and the snow plow has left a 1 foot tall pile of snow in front of your house lol

lol totally agree.. speaking of snow.. the storm just arrived yeah.. i'm only going to be saving $100 for installation & alignment. so i guess it's worth to wait for april.

how's the ride / performance of your car now compared to stock? what's your current ride height for winter?

Yea just wait it out. Best thing I noticed about my car after getting coils installed was that I barely get any body roll now on turns, and just feels planted. But I was lowered a fair bit and had the v2 set up to be more stiff so I had to be careful of bumps on the road. I found myself making a mental note of any and all pot holes in my area lol. For winter I raised up as much as rmp said they could do it and I can fit maybe 1 finger between the top of the tire and the fender.

Yeah.. that's what I've been hearing from people about less body rolls on turns after they got their KW's installed. I know with the V1s .. I won't be able to adjust the dampening settings. I just hope the ride isn't too harsh compared to stock though.

How much did RMP charge you for height adjustments? I'm probably going to wait until I put my summer tires back on and then get the coils installed. Would you suggest doing that?

Think they only charged me 50$ for height adjustment. And they did an alignment. It wasn't too much work for them since my car was already on the lift with wheels off for the wavetrac install. When you get the coils installed from them don't get an alignment right away. Let the new suspension settle for a couple weeks and then get the alignment.
