Nope, I haven't yet. I need to though as I notice quite a bit of shake to the steering wheel now. Very noticable. Not sure if it's just from an aftermarket suspension or that I need an alignment. It doesn't bother me, just different from the super smooth beforehand.

If you have any ideas let me know and I'll go with you!

well i havent gotten my kw vs coils installed yet, but when i had my G35 coupe i was lowered on coils also but shops couldnt align my car since the tires and fenders were so close together they couldnt put the machine thing on each wheel b/c it would damage the fenders...................

so im guessing me and you have to find a shop that has a built into the ground alignment machine

Hey guys, Steve here. Got a couple questions. First, would anyone in the Pgh area be interested in a set of unused H&R sport springs for a e92 328? I'm sure you can use them on the e90 but don't quote me on that. I'm looking for $160. I never got around to installing them and I don't have the money right now for the Koni Yellows I was going to purchase for them. They are not in the box since I threw that away when I recieved them from Brad and BavX. Second, does anyone here do fender rolling? Looking to add spacers in the rear and my current wheels ( Miro 111's 19x9.5 et33) wont allow me to go out to much further before rubbing. I would be willing to meet up with someone who has a roller. Thanks

I'm pretty sure all Nissan dealerships that chose to sell GTR's had to purchase and install in ground alignment machines at a cost close to $100,000 (at least that's what I was told.)

Maybe call a few dealers and see if they would do your car?

hey shane
I couldnt help and and saw the movie on sunday at 2pm, very good movie and "top seller" but there were only 8 people at the cranberry cinema

Did anyone find a reputable shop yet will install struts/springs for a decent price?

everywhere i got now I see bmws but still no foreign car garage.

Foreign Traffic is the only one I know but charges ridiculous prices for installs. Suppose they have a right because they are qualified to fix ferrari's and higher end cars...

good reminder

Actually AK was my first choice especially because of Shanes contact but was just wondering as my spring summer schedule gets hectic and its hard to forecast a open free weekend.
but thanks for the the lead.

Figure NJ is only 4 hrs away

For my coils, I went to Domination Auto here in Pittsburgh. Carnegie exit. I factored in price of install + gas + mileage + time. Wish we had someone like AK here in Pittsburgh. However, there are reputable local shops that don't frequent the forums. Just have to search for them
