xi springs install

hey guys,

I think a few of you have gotten springs or coilovers installed at various shops.

Have a couple of questions, and thanks in advance for the help

- how long does the install take typically for a xi

- is the cost for an install on the xi higher than an i

- how long after the install did you wait before an alignment

- shop you would recommend?


Thanks guys!

1-2 hours install time depending on where you go.

$150-200

Wait about a week or so before alignment

Any preferred area you want the shop to be in?

Thanks for the replies guys, I ended up going to a shop I used to deal with when I had the Prelude

He got it done in 1.5hours. First impressions, handling is much more responsive and a bit stiffer than stock. Nowhere near the HA teins I had on the prelude though

Looks 1000x better now that I'm not 4x4ing anymore
