Bilstein 5100 install in (middle) Georgia?

Bought some used from a member here and now I need them put on. Anyone know any good shops around here? I don't have a spring compressor and quite frankly idk if I'm comfortable doing it myself. Or is it not as bad as it seems?

easier than you think. take the springs to a local shop and have them compressed and the shocks swapped. have you seen the writeup on the install?

Thanks man. I knew it was out there somewhere. I've removed my struts before and it was no big deal. In fact I was gonna do it myself for this install...I'm just not sure bout the coil spring compressor. That's why I was asking about a shop to do it. Guess I shoulda been more clear.
