I'm considering buying lowering springs for my Millenia S. (there arent coilovers offered for my car, otherwise i'd do that)

I've never had any suspension work done before, so i'm curious what kinds of installation prices I should be expecting for lowering springs. I don't need new struts or anything else, just springs installed.

ballpark figures would be appreciated!

thanks!

english? :confused:

edit: i've been on millenia forums and i've been told it is unnecessary to replace shocks/struts unless they are already very worn.

You should be able to get springs installed for under $200. Don't forget about an alignment though. I'd go to an alignment shop and see if they'll do it all at once. The install and the alignment. I know a few local places for me that do that.

its fairly easy really, if u were to tackle it yourself. If you are scared call a few local alignment shops

Make sure you get a spring compressor.

I changed mine in my civic and it was pretty straight forward, and i knew nothing at that time.


It prolly wouldnt be much for a local mechanic to do it....100 bucks tops

to have a shop do it, you can expect atleast an hour a corner. Probably 50 for so and hour so around 200 + an alignment which is another 50 or so. Id guestimate 250+
