Question Swapping H&R Race springs back to stock, how to ensure they do it right?

Hey all,

Tomorrow I'm having a local installer (Sonic Motorsports very well reviewed) swap my H&R Race springs for stock (race springs are a bit much for the SF Bay Area). I have an E92 with EDC. Anything I should tell them ahead of time to be aware of or that I should check immediately afterwards to ensure it's done properly?

Don't ask me how I know but its very easy to damage the rubber boots on either side of the rear control arm bushings (where the lower control arm meets the hub) I would check the boots for any tears before/after the install.

Beyond that theres not too much to go wrong. Confirm the springs are seated fully and the nuts on top of the front struts and rear shocks are tightened fully.

Make sure they install the headlight leveling arm back the right way. The left rear arm can go on 2 ways. The wrong way will have your healights blinding everyone.
