So, I am debating between coilovers (BC BR) or AGX KYB(or)Koni inserts with Yellow springs. The issue is I know it will be way too much work for me by myself to install struts and springs. I also don't want to pay $400 for the install of struts/springs, although the guy would through in a free alignment for me. I am really torn, because this is a DD in southern California and will only see the track once in a while, but will see a lot of spirited driving on back roads. I don't mind a little bit of a harsh ride, but really I do like the adjust-ability of the BC BRs.
Would it be worth my time to wait for a good deal on used coilovers, rip out the old struts/springs and install the coils myself? Or should I go out and get new struts/springs (probably Group N top hats also) and pay to have them professionally installed(and aligned)?
Problem is, all my friends are incompetent when it comes to cars. So I have zero help if I ever decided to go through the immense struggle that is getting new springs on the car. Has anyone installed coilovers by themselves within a day? I am no expert, but I can easily take things apart and put them back together with no problems. I don't have any specialty tools, but figured if I do need them I could rent them from autozone or something.
Thanks for the advice guys!
