Coilover installation in Columbia, MD

Any recommendations for good shops? Reasonable prices? I've been looking around and the quotes I've been getting are north of $900. I'm not trying to spend more on installation than on the coilovers themselves.

I've dealt with Benchmark Motors in Columbia for regular work. I'm sure they would do coilovers.

I used to do them for $250. Now I charge $300 to install and adjust to your preference. My price goes up with the cost of living.
