Looking for help installing Bilstein 5100s

I just got my set of bilsteins in today from DSM. I wanted to see if anyone in the SoCal area that has experience with these would be able to help me install them? It will be the front shocks only, and I can pay you accordingly. I would really like to save some money and avoid paying a shop to do it if possible. Or if you can recommend a shop in the area that will do it for a decent price?

If anyone can, just PM me and let me know!

I am located in Yorba Linda, but can meet up anywhere in Orange County.

Thanks!

Thanks I'll let you know if it's not done in a few weeks.

Has anyone here gotten a reasonable quote from a shop in SoCal?

I am looking for a shop to get some suspension parts ordered and installed. Seems to me the only place around that is reputable is Outlaw Offroad and they are garbage. Last time I was in there one of the "sales" guys was trying to tell me my wheels and tires are round...:facepalm

Awesome I'll contact them. I've been purchasing my parts so far from Down South, they are some great dudes.

If you're ever near anaheim/orange you can get your stuff installed at JBM Motoring. Decent prices and great, fast work. Went to them to have my bilsteins installed.

I can do them whenever for a great price, I have done 100s of them (no joke)

I have people drive all the way from Arizona to have work done from me.

PM me if you wanna get them knocked out, I can do them while you wait. Doesnt get much easier than that.

I am in Vista (92083) if thats close enough, it would be worth the trip.
PM me if I can help.

$140 out the door. I was happy with it considering other places wanted $300 plus to install the fronts alone.
