I was wondering how difficult it would be to install my H&R sports. I want to get them in asap, but the prices seems a bit steep. Is $150 reasonable, or a harsh price? Would it be hard to do it w/ a friend with decent amount of car knowledge as far as installation goes? Alot of hrs? Also where would i go about getting / renting a spring compressor. Also any FAQ's or whatever on springs install would be great.
Thanks

Hey Justin,

It's not all too difficult to install your own H&R sports, so long as you have the correct tools and all. Spring compressor is a definite plus, and most likely a must. $150 is much too high...don't pay that!

If it's your first time for you and your buds, I'd set aside anywhere from 2-8 hours..sometimes things here and there can be a b*tch!


Try pepboys, or a kragen (if that's available in NY) to get a spring compressor.

Also, check www.ntpog.org for their information on how to install aftermarket springs\shocks...good luck!

I installed nuespeeds on my 89 2 weeks ago with a friend. First corner took 4 hours, broken bolt and all, the other 3 took 45 min a piece. Do it yourself!! A spring compressor is a must. I borrowed one from O'Reillys, they require a down payment but you get it all back when you return it.
