RRT in Chantilly would be my top choice.

Thanks Raja I really did missed the M and found a low mileage AW/FR dct in NC. Do you know anyone or shops that charges a fair rate ideally "$300-$400" labor only for the springs? Wish EAS was a bit closet lol.

Thanks is for the help, Ptuning and Mach V quoted me very reasonably price so between the two which one would you guys recommend. Both seems to get fairly good reviews across the forums...

Garage List
I have had good experiences with both and found they gave me the most reasonable estimates when comparing out to other shops in the area. I had my KWs, m3 sway bar and camber plates originally installed at Mach V. I have also had alignments done at both since.

Coincidentally enough, I am getting an alignment at Mach V this afternoon in prep for Skyline.

Long story short, you won't go wrong with either.

I never used Ptuning but was very happy with Mach V. I would say though if you are a car shop snob you will like RRT. They have pretty incredible facilities and equipment but definitely on the pricey side. I liked IMA Motorsports in Chantilly too.
