Default Chicago Area Installer for Coilovers/Alignment

Anyone have any good recommendations for a shop that does good work and is reasonably priced to install my new BC Racing Coilovers on a Gen2 GS400. I also need to get an alignment afterwards - would be great if it was at the same place, but if not, looking for recommendations for that too. Thanks!

you can try iLLGarage or Fizz. They are both out in the burbs. You will have to take the car for an alignment after the coils are installed. I would give it a week to see if you want to make any adjustments and let everything settle.

Thanks. I decided to tackle the job myself as I have a 4 post lift at home. Finished the front drivers side tonight and started on the drivers side rear. Broke two socket wrenches using an extension pipe trying to get the bottom suspension bolt off on the rear. been soaking in PB blaster too and still no luck. Will go to Sears in the morning and try again.

I really need an impact wrench, but only have a small 6 gallon pancake compressor - not sure that is enough. Tomorrow's going to be a long day.

Can't wait to get it done! Thanks again.
