I got mine installed for $150... In SoCal your looking at around $150-200. Some do it themselves

$300 is about avergae IMO. I have seen as high as $500.

Mine is at the storage room.

I suggest keeping them. You may find the need for it once you decide to sell or trade in your car.

Yeah, mine are in the box I got my lp's in. You'll need your stock shocks when you need to send in your coil overs to be re-built

Cost me $100 for install of these coils.
Mine were set at full stiff before I got rid of the car. At full stiffness the car would still rub but I also had no tire showing so I was low.
Keep that in mind.
These coils are great for the price for those that aren't going to go as low as I did.
