Cost for coilovers installation
 
Looking to get my coilovers installed. How much did you guys pay? Which shop did you go to? Any recommendations for around Boston area?

In central NJ, best price I got was 450$ installed including alignment at a dealership. The famous independent shops in the area all wanted 750+, not including alignment.

DIY. It doesn't look too complex and it will only cost you your time, which is worthless..... errr..... wait....:D

I charge people $300 to do suspension.

SpeedLife Motorsports up in Haverhill used to list rates for common installs. I don't see it on their site anymore but if memory serves I think the had coilover installs listed at just south of $300. I don't think that included an alignment, but they work with another shop across town that specializes in vw alignment.

Give em a call...they're a great bunch!

Thanks for the input guys. I would DIY it if I have the tools and a place to do it. SpeedLife sounds pretty good, I might give them a call later.

You'll also want an alignment soon after the install too, unless you want to shred up your tires. Typically shops charge $300 for install and $70 for an alignment if they have the machine in house. I'm South of Boston, so I had my coilovers installed at BanchWerks (Providence) and went to the Sears at the Emerald Square Mall (Attleboro) for the alignment. Worked out great. :)

I got mine done at Northeast Autobah in Walpole, MA for $350, including the alignment. They also gave me the best deal on my ST's as well. (I forget who they price matched)

Does anyone have any experience with eastside motoring in Waltham before?

Heard great things about this shop! Funny thing is that I used to take my beater Civic to my buddy's shop right in the same spot they are in and completely missed it until recently.

Think I've seen their name pop up a few times here in the NE forums, but they aren't on the favorite's list.

I'm not sure what exactly is required, but I've got the space if you still need it done. I've still got to learn my way around the VW, but if no specialty tools are required I might just have everything needed.
