Thumbs up Suspension Installed

Just got my suspension installed at a shop in long beach long island ny. I did the KONI FSD's and H&R sport drop, car rides pretty good, feels almost like stock, here's some pics

thanks fellas, $250 for labor. I got a good deal on the shocks and springs. Real Auto Dynamics in Oceanside, Long Island got me the springs and found a guy who bought the shocks by accident because his girl bought them for him already

Yes that's a good drop amount, don't go anymore otherwise you'll mess with the suspension geometry. These cars, like most cars with MacPhearson struts are good to within an inch or so of stock ride height.

Did that $250 include alignment?
