best/cheapest shop to get coilovers installed in Raleigh?

Looking for a shop to install my coilovers on friday in Raleigh.

Ive called like 8 shops in that area and they're trying to charge $600 for installation....what the hell?!

where are all these people getting their stuff installed for like $300???

I know you get what you pay for and so on, but $600 is steep!

Any good/cheap shops in Raleigh guys?

ended up finding a guy off a different forum to do mine in Wilmington for 300.
I helped him and honestly it is NOT that hard....I am the most non mechanically inclined person and even I could have done this (with all appropriate tools of course)

it just takes some time. but no its not that damn hard.

i followed the ECS tuning video on youtube. very helpful

Nah, I know it isn't hard, last car I did was my Evo with a friend with a lift. But $450 with an alignment isn't bad, particularly if you're setting ride height and all that.

Do you have any pics post-installation?

Yeah I have one.

I just installed them and didn't set ride height to where I want it. Its preset from the person i bought it from. Doesn't look too bad, but whenever this rain stops i'll make a few adjustments.

btw the vossen pic is the look im shooting for. just gotta sell my current set up and get a set of those....so nice
