are u doing it urself or paying someone to do it.....my mechanic...with some help.....changed springs in my car in under 1/2 hour FYI....but other ppls make take longer.....shops will generally charge you 1 hour labour minimnum or more....
I have had 2 quotes so far. One was $550 for the struts, springs and top strut bar. Other quote was $125. I think I am going to post both quotes (including parts costs) by tomorrow just to let everyone advise if I am being ripped off.
Thank you for the info this clarifies things for me. I have received 3 quotes to do the following:
Parts (with range of pricing):
Front Tokico struts $130.00 to $175 each
Rear Tokico struts &130.00 to $175 each
Eibach 1.3" lowering springs are $320.00 to $380.00
Ractive polished strut bar is $50.00 to $65.00
View this as all a wash. The installation is an issue:
Master Performance quoted $550 + $69.95 for the alignment
Max Motor Sports quoted $145 + $79.95
I am thinking of calling the local Toyota Dealer and finding out what they would charge for the installation and use that as as the baseline.
The one thing that MaxMotorSports stated is that I should consider is installing a camber kit. Anyone have any thoughts on doing this? I mainly am driving on the highway and I drive all year around. I simply don't think this is necessary but would love to hear the thoughts of others on this.
lol drive down to my place we do it in my driveway and we go to my school for an allignment lol 10 bucks shop fee at school and maby pay me like 50 bucks and drive back home SIMPLE AS THAT whatcha say ???? : buy the parts online im gunna purchase my eibach pro kit for 240 sum this week and u can buy that KYB stuff alot cheaper online im sure it should cost that much at all
