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.

Someone quoted you $900 to install coils?!?!?! That's insulting

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.
