Price for Lowering

Hello

I found out from a place in chicago (Drivers Image in Skokie) that it would cost me about $669.00 for a one inch drop. That includes alingment also.

Is that expensive?

Would you know any other place in Chicago where I can get it done?

Thanks so much!

Pick up a set of used springs and you can go to a tuner to put on. $150 springs, about $100 labor. May want to check one of our sponsors here about the cost.

rennart quoted me $270 to install springs... then never called me back to let me know if they could get the springs i needed in stock.

that kinda shit pisses me off.


I'll try A&L for sure next time I'm in town.

jbone... don't worry bout the lease... as long as you know you need to and dont mind spending the money to have um pulled out before you give the ride back (and obviously keep the stock parts) you'll be fine. I've got a shit load of mods and a shit load more i want, and i'm leasing too (want to buy at the end though assuming its a good price)
