I just got my V1s installed at A & L. They did an awesome job and for what they charged I would not take it anywhere else.

Yes, they do.

I believe my KW V1 install was $300 with an alignment. Can't beat that.

That is stupidly cheap. Doesnt even seem worth it at that price. Id jump on this if that is what they charge.

coils

Here is a quick iphone pic of my ride lowered with KW v1. A & L did a real nice job and even installed some black peddles I bought here on the forums for free.



Since they did such an awesome job with the coils I decided to get the Mtech rear bumper with a performance diffuser installed. Won't derail the thread so I might post some pics of my ride before and afters on another post.

Make sure you tell them how low/high you want them to go. I didn't mention it to Anthony and when I picked my car up it was pretty slammed. Though it's what I wanted anyways.

Same, that pic I posted is what they lowered it to but I had to go back and get it raised a little last week because with people in the back seat it would scrape.
