    About to order some bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks and I'm looking for a good place to get them installed.

    I called Desert Rat and they quoted me $200 for the install and $89 for the allignment. Is this a good deal?

    If you know of another place to get it done at let me know

    well summer is coming up and its very unlikely I'll have time to make it to anything with senior trips and moving into college coming up. If a mod day comes up and I can make it i'll definately chose that over a shop though!

    Well I just called Off Road Unlimited and they said 275-300 for just the install....the guy said it'd be 2-3 hours of labor which is bullshit! I told him "just for the front" and he said yes...so don't go there! There dumb asses!!!

    K, called 4 wheel parts in Mesa and it'd be 375 for install and alignment.

    Sounds like Desert Rat is the best deal so for

    Desert Rat quoted me the same price here in Tucson, that's for front and rear; that's where I'm taking mine.

    yeah they sound like they have the best prices, I still have to wait for DSMS to get some more 5100's in stock tho. Desert Rat wanted $230 for them so i politely declined ha.

    That's where I got mine, they have the best prices and the service was great. They were also pretty quick with getting more in stock, I didn't have to wait as long as I thought I would.
