Default Coilover install cost

Got quoted $250 to have coilovers installed, does that sound about right or am I getting ripped?

thanks -

Both are in the ballpark figure depending on the labor rate in your city/state. I would definitely get a second quote though.

Wow those are bargain prices!

Here in the Bay Area most shops would probably charge you $400-500 minimum. Half the time to install and the other half to dial in the height (which proved quite time consuming if you are picky)

I'll tell you guys a secret, the first thing I have ever done with no prior automotive history was a coilover Install on my Xb at 16. It's straightforward just have friends help you put

Take the plunge and do it yourself. I installed coilovers on my Z by myself. Shouldn't be too different from other cars.
