I'm ordering and planning to have the Eibach Pro-Kit shocks and springs installed in the next couple of weeks. I am wondering where would be the best place to get it done locally in Milwaukee. I guess my other option is to drive to Libertyville, should be about an hour worth of driving. I heard good things about them. Also, once I have enough money for a full cat-back (Neuspeed or Brullen), should I get Liberty to install that as well? Will I save money or should I go with a local indy shop?

Update.
Just called Liberty, $480 for the suspension installation with the ClubB5 discount. $180 for the exhaust.
So..... I am desperately in need of a good shop to install my suspension for closer to $200. Any suggestions are welcome. I will drive anywhere within about 150 mile radius so shops in Chicago are not out of question.

Update. Found a local guy, a husband of a co-worker, who'll do it for $200 + price of an alignment (he's got a buddy who'll give me a break on that as well). I'm cool with that. I think I'll ask him to put in a TT diverter valve while he's at it. He shouldn't charge me for that.

kezho,

I'm not trying to be critical, but, why should the husband of your co-worker, who is already giving you a pretty good price on the installation of your new suspension parts, also install a new diverter valve for free?

Because it is a 5 minute job once he is under the car already, and I will hook him up with a six pack for the trouble anyways. :crazy:
You sound like a grandma. Are you a grandma? Just wondering. :poke:

Hey kezho,

You're pretty touchy there kiddo. The DV swap is not a 5 minute job. Also, if you "hook him up with a six pack", then it's not "free".

No need for you to be so damn defensive and resort to name calling.

Hmmm..... Well, it's this same kind of patronizing attitude that identified you as a grandma, grandma. All I meant was it is pretty easy to get to it once the car is already up; and then however long it takes to take off the belly pan and unscrew two clamps. You're right, this is not a 5 minute job. I understand that it is these kinds of gross exaggerations that get you panties all in a bunch. For that I apologize. Have a :beer: and relax. It's Friday.
