Glad too see a strong showing of 335's at Sac Raceway last Saturday! We had a good time, about 6 of us showed up (3 from the Bay including Shiv in a customers car). I wouldn't mind going again next Sat if the weather is good and some of you guys show

I replaced my struts and springs (all four) just last month. I went to Radial Tire Server on Cottage way (near Fulton Niello BMW). They charged me $350 labor. Ask for Havier. Can't guarantee they'll match the same price.

^ Sweet! I forgot to mention the 4-wheel alignment was included! It's been 4 weeks since the install n the alignment is still perfect. My only complaint are the Koni shocks are a bit soft in the front, but I can manually adjust them (this weekend).

What springs did u get?

Forum vendors and my garage Shops rip you off. Depending on what you need done, most likely have to go to the bay area. Sonic MS is awesome, they did my turbo and LSD install.

Yeah, i know... Unfortunately I don't think sac has good mod shops, might do that then. Just don't want to pay for shipping costs and would rather go to a shop that sells and installs the coilover kits. Youfrom sac?

Check out auto heaven on Fulton. The owner Igor is a great guy. He rolled my fenders last week last min before I left for Socal and then made a appt for this week for alignment and he got that done great for me. Tell him Selymon sent you.

The only "mod" shop I've come across here in Sac is Valley Motorwerks. But I got an install quote for struts and springs and it was ridiculous. You should research coil-overs on your own (plenty of info on this forum) and find the right set for your needs, order, and find a shop to install.

Oh and finally got my 335 from the body shop. Having some minor issues but working them out. Car was lowered on St's running a lil low and with aggressive offsets. I had Igor at Auto Heaven roll my fenders for me. Great guy and shop! I had the Procede installed with FBO waiting to install my meth. Ran into some misfire issues. Replaced all my plugs and a couple of coil packs and we are back to normal again. Now time to install meth kit. Here are some quick iPhone pics. thanks
