Arrow NorCal Bay Area E90 Owners...Shops?

I'm looking for install shops for my e90 here in the Walnut Creek, Oakland, Berkeley area. I want to get my springs installed. Not interested in driving to the Southbay or San Francisco. I would like the shop to align the car also. Any ideas??

TIA!
Danny

Yea, I used to take my Hondas there for Jack to work on. Dynospot racing is a place I like alot, it's just they are far away in San Jose. Thanks though!

Hey Rob,

I emailed them to ask about labor rates and Erik priced install of the H&R's at $400.00, another $50.00 to swap the dampers out at the same time. (I wonder why it would be extra since the damper is already out anyways) They want another $175.00 to install the rogue SSk. Too bad, I wanted to bring my car there! Thanks for your help though!

Danny

yea, that seems a lil pricey. i think it may be due to them using shop rates more in tune to indy bmw service centers.

i got my suspension installed on my old e34 at auto innovations in milpitas for $250. similar rate when my friends brought an e36 m3 and a4 there. i think when the time comes, i'll probably go back there.

I'm just going with a set of H&R's. I was debating on getting a set of Bilsteins, but I'm hoping that the ZSP dampers will handle the extra .7f and .6r drop with little or no problems. If I had non ZSP, I would have purchased a complete set for sure.

What about you?

^ hahaha.

imho, the shocks from the sport package should be able to handle the additional drop from h&r sports as it is not all that much.
