DetailAddict can but they are in Santa Clara. I'm sure there's more but I'm rarely in the bay area anymore but I'm sure others can suggest places too

Unless your car is a lease I would get some shocks to go with the h&r springs if you do go with that route. You'll be fine for a little but you're eventually going to need new shocks and might as well get them installed all at once.

Jason you were on stock shocks right and you switched them out for coils?

Johnson, I'll do $120 picked up if you're local. The H&R sports are a fairly common fix for those who wanted to remove the fender gaps but with the plans that I have with the car, I bought a set of coils. There's nothing wrong with the springs, I just have no use for them. In retrospect, I wish I saved up money and got coils from the get-go so I would only need to pay for install once :P

Quick write-up: Decent drop, minimized body roll and definitely looks a lot better. As for ride quality you sacrifice a bit if you don't pair it up with aftermarket shocks like Bilstein, Konis, etc. I'm a fairly passive person with a high tolerance for discomfort and it took me about 10 months before I got annoyed with the bumps.

Chris; Yeah, I was on sport shocks when I had the H&Rs. How've you been? It's be a while.

Please don't buy those. These headers have been around for a few years. They are made with shitty welds and have been known to make you actually LOSE hp then the stock manifold.

Also, got my valves cleaned by Phuong@SpeedElement and what a difference! Car feels amazing and idles so much better. Definitely needed it because my valves were caked!

Why not just buy the wheels and send to him? He's probably going to charge a lot just for the wheels and dipping since he's not a store.
