    Question getting springs done in PA

    So I just picked up my 2003 WRX today for $7000 with 90k miles. In great shape and I'm super exited . It came with prodrive springs that the seller didn't install. I am not a mechanic nor do I know much about car parts/installations, but I am doing my research and learning it as much as I can. I was jw if its hard to install these yourself or if I should go just get them done at a dealer or w/e. If at the dealer you guys know how much the price would be around Pittsburgh area? Thank a bunch in advance.

    It's pretty easy, I put my Mach v springs on my car without a spring compressor...

    first of all, congratulations. save your money to fix the little things that may pop up over the next year.

    a spring install isn't too difficult, but you need to be careful, and you'll want a helper, especially if you don't get a loaner spring compressor. for a spring install, the subie shops around here charge a flat $200...I wouldn't go to a dealership and pay their silly prices. for prodrive springs, I wouldn't bother with a spring compressor unless you can't get a helper or if your helper is a girly man.

    don't forget to get an alignment afterwards, and somewhere that you can talk to the tech directly to get more preferable numbers in the range (positive camber is still within the standard spec).
