    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?

    *bump*

    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...:confused::facepalm

    if you want to order parts, there are plenty of vendors on this site. sdhq, downsouth motorsports. depending on what you get, some guys here can do the install for cheaper than any shop. manwithoutaplan or hiatt1991 can help.

    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.
