this alignment shop next to my house is asking for $180 to install my Eibach Pro Kit for my p11.

Is that reasonable? I don't know...it just seems so expensive.

My father is an Infiniti Technician, so I got mine done for free :lick: . But it did take us about three hours total to do them all. So that MIGHT be reasonable.

You shold be looking to pay 100$ to 150. I paid $150 for my install. The best place to go to get this work done is your local import shop cuz they'll do it quicker and actually know what there doing. When I was young and stupid I took my car to America's Service Station to put performance shocks on and they ended up puting some of my springs on upside down. I took it in for the 2nd time to correct the problem and they had 2 upside down and the other 2 right side up. It took them 3 times to get it right.

I think it's a do it yourself job. The Strut compressors are free loan at Autozone and you'll learn a lot about your suspension besides saving some money. :)

It's actually pretty basic. If you don't have the tools you'll need a good metric socket and open/box wrench set. Something from sears would be OK. A 2' 1/2" breaker bar. A 1/2" 17mm socket and wrench (I think it's 17mm for the upper link bolts on the front). A pair of plyers for the front break lines. A spring compressor (very necessary). Umm, an adjustible or 8mm wrench to hold the strut rod. If you really want to tackle it yourself let me know and I can probalby write something fairly good up for you.
