Hi I noticed a lot of you peeps in here are from so. cal. I was just wondering if any of you know of a good shop around here that does spring installs. I have my springs and shocks sitting in my living room right now and I kinda want to get them installed. I don't really know of any shops tho and I don't want to just go to any shop because I don't trust alot of them. I live in Irvine/Cerritos, but am willing to go pretty much anywhere within like 40 miles if they do a good job.

Mucho gracias

You know what, hehe, acually I got everything. I got the spring compressor, jacks, sockets. All i need is a torque wrench. I was orginally going to do this install with my roomate whose done this many times before, but I don't really wanna bug him right now cuz he is busy with school and work and I am too. But I guess if it comes down to that, I will just ask.

As long as your friend and you know what you're doing..it's better to do it yourself. I got my springs installed at a shop called "Premier" in La Habra..They did a good job..i watched the whole time also.

there is a mechanic right down the street (on Cabot Road in Laguna Hills) from me who i think is real good and he installed my yellows/pro-kits. We goto him for pretty much everything for our Hondas. He specializes in Honda/Acura/Volvo and drives a NSX himself..

i can't think of the damn name tho.. its a small place.. hm.. ill remember in a second and repost, sorry :p

these are in the san gabriel valley...
- www.sprewellracing.com at san gabriel blvd and mission.
- innovative motorsports close to valley and san gabriel blvd.

i paid about $80 bucks to do it at either place. i trust sprewell more since the guy in the back seems to do it confidently and he does all the euro cars that come in. innovative will jsut get it done.

if you do do it yourself, a torque wrench is pretty cheap at around $20.
