Suspension Install SoFla recommendations

Hello,
I just purchased a lightly used set of MCS based coilovers, it's adjustable and I won't have recommended settings to start from for my 1M, so I'd like somewhere that can help me get it setup properly in terms of ride height without issues, ideally they can facilitate corner balancing. I'm in Ft. Lauderdale, any guidance on a quality shop experienced with equipment like this? I know of a few shops that I'm sure could but I'd prefer somewhere someone can vouch for.
Thank You,
Spencer

For corner balancing nobody and I mean nobody can do better than Albert at Apex alignment.

Give him a call on Monday, I don't think he does installs but ask him. He really knows his sh*t and has a lot of tracking time and experience

Install the suspension, get a good alignment from Albert, track it a few times then get it corner balanced.

That's the plan, was on the edge on corner balancing but I think I'll wait until I'm sure the ride height I select works etc

Yes, you don't wanna corner balance until you're completely done with it and done a few track events
