GVA: where to get shocks and springs installed?

I have some M3 springs from KW coming in for my wife's '88 E30 325. Also I need some Bilsteins. Can you guys recommend any local places?
Thanks in advance.

dales is mediocre. i went there for my kwv2's. they dont really give a shit about cleanliness. (dont wash dirty black hands when in car, dont put seat cover, oil stained boots) honestly for the distance to get there its not worth it. can get similar if not better service nearby in vancouver.

and make sure you double check that they put you down for an appointment. made me drive there once for an hour only to find out they "forgot". LOL

Keith @ aria auto in richmond did my KW v1's and was very happy about it. He is also one of the owners at the shop so his service is top notch. PM me if you want contact info

+1 for Keith @ Aria, they're a small shop but he has worked on many e9x and very reasonable price. CG in Richmond is also good but higher price. Also try Monkey Nutz Racing in Burnaby, my friend Jack is one of the owners and a former BMW tech. I wouldn't go to Dales, they're nothing special and simply too far for most people lol

Does anyone know How much is it usually to get coilovers installed and aligned? I'm getting ridiculous quotes like 400-500 hundreds...?
Thanks!

Installation should be around 300-400, alignment should cost u around 90 bucks

I paid $350 plus tax for install and alignment x2 at Dales. They ask you to come back after suspension has settled for a realignment

hmm im surprised u had bad serviced there, i ONLY go to dales for any suspension related work, i've been there enough times to trust them and leave my car there for the day for them to work on it when ever they have time, but mind u, only jason gets to work on my car tho

Thanks engotski!
Got my springs and Bilsteins installed at Dale's Saturday

http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/albu...ictureid=10390

Too bad that I stayed there from 8:30am to 12:30pm as I had no ride.
Being in an industrial-park-like setting limited walking around the neighbourhood.

I got the ST Springs off of eBay and Dales ordered the Bilsteins from the US.

Although they pointed out a bad front right wheel bearing when they test drove it they should have told me about the sag on the drivers side due to a worn trailing arm bushing. I've got some slight fender rubbing happening now. At least they rolled the rear fender lips a bit for me.
