    NoVA Shop - Spring Install

    Can anyone recommend a decent shop in the Northern VA area that can do a spring install (no alignment)? I just called Ultimate in Sterling and they quoted me $320 + alignment ... seems really steep to me.

    Should be about a two hour job.

    2 x $70/hour = $140

    Alignment = $60-70

    Job should be about $200-250 tops.

    do a search on here or nasioc. I'm sure there is a tutorial somewhere. It's really not that hard of a job to do. All you need is the tools and a buddy.

    The buddy is even optional. It does help to have someone to get you beer though.

    I would recommend DIY if you have a buddy, and got an air compressor. You'll need spring compressors too, which you can rent for free at an auto store. The air compressor will help you cut time when using the spring compressors. It took me n my friend 2 hours to do all 4 springs and a rear sway bar.

    Not sure how close you are but Andrewtech in Gaithersburg, MD is a great shop.
