Any one know where to go for suspension job?

Hi guys, I'm consider dropping my car a bit.
Dose anyone know where I can lower my car with reasonable price?(OR preferred but doesn't matter with WA)
I got a quote from several local shops which are $500+ while most of guys in forum says $150-250 is reasonable.

Thanks!!!

Forgot to say, kw sleeve kit or lower spring. Not gonna track so don't want to pay couple thousands on suspension.
However either way cost is about the same isn't it?

For just install and not parts you might find 200. I just had camber plates installed so only opening up the front and it was about 180. Similar procedure and set up involved for labor. He quoted me around 400 for full coilover install.

You will need an alignment after install that would cost roughly $200 itself. There is a big difference between just installing the kit and actually setting it up properly. I would guess a good shop would charge $800-1000 for install, setup and alignment.

call Eddie at A R Auto Service in Lake Oswego. 503-697-3311.........best suspension guy in the area.

Group 2 for one stop shop. You are looking at about 400 including alignment. I also been to Cohesive Garage but they don't have an alignment machine.
