5100's and tsb - which first?

My parts for the tsb come in late today, so I have an appointment early tomorrow. I also have front only 5100s that I want installed. The dealer wants 500 for the installation, claiming removing the coilovers require hours of work alone. So obviously I'm going elsewhere. So I can get the 5100s installed today, but I dunno how each installation may affect the other. Would it be ok to have the 5100s installed today before the tsb, or should I wait?

You can get either installed whenever, you just need an alignment after each so it would be best to get the 5100s put on first, then get the dealer to do your TSB and have them align.

Ya, took my girlfriend's brother about 30 minutes to do mine.

OK, thanks guys.

I have an appointment at 9 tomorrow to install my 5100s ($160, no alignment), then right after I'm going to the dealership to have the tsb done. So i have roughly 7 hours I have to sit around and study... So just to be sure, it's best to get have the 5100s set at 1.75 to level with tsb right?
