Edmonton Shop to install Springs and Struts?

Hi,

I'm looking for a shop that would have the expertise to do a spring and strut install on my 2006 330xi.

I will be providing the Springs and struts (eibach, koni yellow) and the bumpstops as well.

I requested a quote from Euroasia already and was quoted a whopping $1200+ for the install and alignment...

And Speedtech quoting me $440 or so.

I swear when I was in Toronto the rates were much cheaper... Or am I just looking in the wrong places?

440 is a decent price. 110 an hour, 1 hour per corner giving some time for adjustments, that's pretty average.

Things are much cheaper in Ontario. Diy and pay for the alignment after.

I got a quote for $350 for an install of struts and shocks in Toronto! So yeah Alberta is sounding a lot more pricey.

Toronto prices at great reputable garages are 200$ street price cash deal in Markham for the install of

1. Springs
2. Springs and shocks
3. Coilovers

Alignment is ontop of the 200$ which is around 60-100$ depending on where you go.

I have seen prices range from 200-250$ for lowering in markham for just install.

Now I miss Toronto, even with the 13% HST... haha I'll keep looking.

One shop that specialized in JDMs actually refused the job citing "too many special tools needed". Even though E90 suspensions is actually fairly generic.

I've asked for quotes from other shops via email, but some haven't bothered replying...
